Electric Spring in the MuseumsQuartier

Vienna is a musical city – and it’s not all classical music. Today's Austrian electronic music also enjoys a good reputation around the world. Visitors can be impressed by the high quality of the music acts in 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.

The festival starts on Thursday with a performance by electro-pop act Kids n Cats on the open-air stage in the main courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier. Loud, wild and colorful, they combine hip-hop beats with pop. Lateron, the Vienna-born artist salute, who now lives in Britain, presents his bass-heavy sounds in Hall E. The closing act is Vienna art-pop group Euroteuro with new wave, electro-pop and a twinkle in their eye.

Bass in the MuseumsQuartier

The second day of the festival is devoted to hip-hop and bass. Kinetical & P.Tah bring their grime sounds to the MuseumsQuartier. Viennese rapper T-Ser makes a big impression with his wide-ranging show. Then he hands the mike to young rapper Keke, whose critical texts offer a complete contrast to the numerous sexist clichés that often influence rap. Then DJ Resista and others will raise the roof of Hall E with electronic, jungle, hip-hop beats and bass.
