Summer in the MQ
Vienna's MuseumsQuartier (MQ) is one of the biggest cultural areas in the world. The mix of large museums, small cultural initiatives and trendy bars is a success story. The outdoor season starts this year on 12 May with the SummerOpening. From 3.00 pm, visitors can rummage for bargains at the cultural flea market in the main courtyard of the MQ while listening to the sounds of the DJs.
Opening concerts and free admission
Admission to all museums and cultural institutions in the MQ is free after 5.00 pm. In addition to the current exhibitions, visitors can look forward to special tours and workshops for children. The opening is celebrated with two open-air concerts in the main courtyard: There is a live gig by the band A Life A Song A Cigarette at 7.00 pm followed by a combined performance by the bands Ash My Love and BulBul at 8.00 pm. Until the end of September, the inner courtyards of the MuseumsQuartier draw visitors with a boules area, cozy guest gardens, cool weekend sounds by DJs as well as the stylish MQ furniture to relax on. The Aquadrome also starts on 12 May and invites people to boat races on the pond.
The O-Töne Literature Festival organizes first-class open-air readings again in July and August. Film fans also get their money's worth in July and August: The frame[o]ut festival provides audiovisual surprises on the outdoor cinema screen in the MQ on 18 evenings during the summer.
