Dancing crowd at an open air party

Dance through the Day

Tanz durch den Tag (Dance through the Day) has been around for a couple of years in the form of open-air parties - with the background of bringing public or empty spaces to life through dance, art and culture. This year, the event is a festival lasting several days. Visitors to the Aufwind Festival on Danube Island from 30 June to 2 July can dance under the open sky near the Steinspornbrücke. To live up to the festival’s slogan, bands and DJs will provide music to dance to on four stages from 12.00 noon to 10.00 pm. The music played ranges from electronic to hip-hop.

Techno meets Bodywork

For relaxation in between, visitors can take part in workshops for yoga, meditation and a wide range of bodywork sessions. Performances from street art to circus, children’s programs, a market with restaurant and sustainably made products and food complement the offering.

Those looking to carry on dancing into the night will have the chance to do so from 11.00 pm on 30 June and 1 July at the after parties in the clubs Grelle Forelle and Werk. Both clubs are located in the immediate vicinity on the Danube Canal and can be reached via Spittelau station on the U4/U6 line.

More than a party

The two-part Aufwind Festival also offers another aspect: At the Forum Biotopia, there are exhibitions, performances, installations, theater, concerts, a children’s program, presentations, discussions and medicine in the former Creau stables. And all in the name of sustainability.
