The Popfest opening on the Thursday is performed by the incomparable a cappella wizards Bauchklang. Apart from these established live performers, the stage also belongs to two newcomer hopefuls: the Steaming Satellites, representatives of the new Indie-Rock, and Her Voice Over Boys (HVOB), a hip electronic duo with international festival experience.
Visitors to the four-day festival can look forward to 50 exciting acts of quality Austrian pop. The selection comes from this year's Popfest curator, the Austrian sound pioneer Patrick Pulsinger. In the line-up: the Electro-House band A.G. Trio, the quirky beat actionists König Leopold as well as the FM4 Amadeus Award winners Catastrophe & Cure. And Bomb The Bass legend Tim Simenon (UK) performs his brand-new Vienna project, Ghost Capsules.
The open-air festival of Viennese pop music is held in front of the Baroque St. Charles' church, not far from the bastions of classical music: the Vienna State Opera and the Musikverein. The main stage is ironically called the "Seebühne" ("Lake Stage"), after the large, knee-deep stone pond located there. The Technical University, the Vienna Museum, the Künstlerhaus, the brut Theater, the Kunsthalle and St. Charles' Church are weatherproof locations for a wealth of other concerts.
