Electric Spring in the MuseumsQuartier
Vienna is a musical city - not only as far as classical music is concerned. The Austrian electronic music scene also enjoys a good reputation around the world. Visitors can be impressed by the high quality of the electronic music acts on 8 and 9 April with free admission in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier (MQ). The Electric Spring music festival offers an exciting two-day program, taking place both indoors and outdoors throughout the entire MQ area.
ATTENTION: Due to bad weather the scheduled open-air concerts will be performed in the mumok Hofstallungen
The festival starts on April 8 at 19:30 with the Vienna electro pop punk band KIDS N CATS on the open-air stage in the main courtyard of the MQ. Next, Salzburg rapper Crack Ignaz and the Viennese producer Wandl will present their recently issued, highly-acclaimed joint album. Starting at 22:30 Canned Fit and the Viennoise DJ collective are on the program at Kunsthalle Wien. At the same time DJ Fauna, Philipp Quehenberger, Battle-ax, Jung an Tagen, Forever Traxx, and Klitclique can be heard in the mumok royal stables (Hofstallungen). From 22:00 the Brunnhilde DJ collective, Buffered Multiple, Masha Dabelka & Misonica, Kimyan Law, and the avant-garde hip-hop project Kœnig will be performing at Café Leopold.
The second day of the festival will continue in a more experimental vein. At 19:30 Maja Osojnik will kick off the festivities on the open-air stage in the main courtyard of the MQ with a live duo show with Patrick Wurzwallner, performing under the name Zsamm. They will present music that spans experimental electronic music and avant-garde pop. Next, the jazz-electronic free spirit Sixtus Preiss will perform in a quartet formation. At 22:30 you can hear the atmospheric minimalist pop music of Patrick Weber, aka Infinite, at Kunsthalle Wien. Then DJs Anna Leiser, The Reboot Joy Confession, and Tobsi Tobsen will invite you to dance. At Café Leopold and in the mumok royal stables there will also be plenty of acts, starting at 22:30 and performing into the small hours; among them are Peter Kutin, Shampoo Boy, Deep Major Bätzi Error, Mieux, the Discus Throwers DJ collective, and Monophobe.
