Music festivals in the autumn

Musiktheatertage Wien

This year's Musiktheatertage Wien will take place from September 14 to 24, 2022, at the WUK Werkstätten- und Kulturhaus in the 9th district. – An international festival that pushes the boundaries with a contemporary program. It brings together the national and international scene in an exciting mix of sophisticated contemporary own productions, co-productions, and guest performances.

Hollywood in Vienna

On September 23 (pre-premiere) and 24 (gala), 2022, the gala Hollywood in Vienna presents symphonic film music at its best at the Wiener Konzerthaus. Legendary compositions from Oscar-winning movies are offered by the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. At the center of the evening and the program is guest of honor Alan Menken. He is one of Hollywood's most successful film composers (eight Oscars, eleven Grammys, and seven Golden Globes!) and a true Disney legend (incl. Aladdin, Arielle, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame – which is also on as a musical at the Ronacher from October 8). On September 24, Menken will receive the Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award live on stage.

Wien im Rosenstolz

The Wien im Rosenstolz festival, established in 2001, brings the Wienerlied to the stage of the Theater am Spittelberg every evening from October 1 to 31, 2022. This is perhaps less about the classic, stirring and vinous Wienerlied than it is about an exciting series of concerts that presents the modern-day variety of Viennese music. About 40 artists and ensembles present their Wienerisch tones, melodies, and rhythms in a colorful and self-assured way. Fancy some name dropping? Ina Regen, Wiener Blond, Agnes Palmisano, Katharina Strasser, Ursula Strauss, Die Strottern, Ernst Molden, and many more will be there. Time to meet them.

Wien Modern

The 35th Wien Modern festival turns Vienna into an international platform for the latest developments on the art scene from October 29 to November 30, 2022. New music, including 57 world and 20 Austrian first performances, can be heard at 25 venues across the city: The works are by 48 female composers and 65 male composers. The festival topic: 100 attempts at dealing well with complexity.


The month of November brings a whole bunch of jazz and blues to the city. At the ViennaJazzFloor 2022 festival, nine Viennese jazz clubs (Jazzland, Sargfabrik, Reigen, etc.) present domestic and foreign greats of the scene. The pallet ranges from classical jazz via blues and swing to modern, impro, and funk. And all at more than 130 concerts!
