Local artists are finally able to perform again, the crowds can finally enjoy culture live again. Each week from Thursday to Sunday, Vienna's Kultursommer 2021 presents the full range of the cultural landscape – with two acts per evening and stage:
pop, rock and hip-hop, soul, Indie and classical, a club circuit (with a new location at the Donaustadt Bridge for twelve club evenings!), dance, theater and performance, cabaret, comedy, readings, poetry slam, contemporary circus, jazz, folk and songwriting, electronic, Austropop, Wienerlied and more, as well as a children's and youth program. All of this is accommodated under the umbrella of the Kultursommer.
40 days – 16 stages – 1,000 acts
A diverse, high-quality cultural program gives perspectives, is food for the heart, mind and soul. The Kultursommer makes so much possible at its many venues. And the same maxim applies at them all: come along, take a seat, relax – and enjoy the event in a safe setting. With the exception of the Bank Austria Kultursommer Club, all locations can be accessed free of charge; registration is required only for the ImPulsTanz workshops. Dress code? Flip-flops are also allowed in. Dining? Also available by the stages again this year.
Discovering city oases
16 stages in 13 districts are open to all residents of Vienna and guests of the city. From the colonnaded courtyard at City Hall to Seestadt, from the Naschmarkt to Danube Island, from Alt Erlaa to Karl-Marx-Hof, from the Kaiserwiese to the Herderpark in Simmering: no matter where you happen to be – you're sure to find a Kultursommer location somewhere nearby. There are also garden concerts at 25 retirement homes for their residents.
I like to move it, move it
On board again for Kultursommer 2021 are the popular Public Moves in cooperation with ImPulsTanz - Vienna International Dance Festival. Everyone is invited to participate in free dance workshops under the direction of professional choreographers on three stages – in the colonnaded courtyard at City Hall, at the Sportinsel sports complex, and on the Kaiserwiese.
