From September 27 to 29, the top-class Waves Vienna music festival will take place in the city for the eight time. With over 100 international acts ranging from alternative and singer-songwriter to electronic and club music, the festival will this year again be focused around Vienna's 9th district. In addition to well-known locations such as the WUK, where the festival's headquarters will be situated, concerts and performances will also be held at more unusual venues.
Numerous live performances
Headliners are the Swedish hip-hop legend Neneh Cherry and The Go Team! (UK), who bring their good-mood-old-school sound to Waves Vienna. Singer Jamie Isaac, also from the UK, impresses with his soulful, piano-based singing. And Plàsi, a Swedish singer-songwriter with Greek roots, arrives with his acoustic guitar. The indie rock band Paramount Styles comes to Vienna from the USA.
The Austrian music scene is also strongly represented and offers plenty to be discovered: Mile me Deaf, Catastrophe & Cure, Attic Giant, a rare appearance by the hip-hop formation Schönheitsfehler and many more.
Guest countries "East Meets West".
This year's guest countries are Portugal and Slovakia, and they will be the focus of the festival's live concerts and of the Waves Vienna Conference. The music conference with panels, workshops, networking sessions and speed meetings also takes place at the WUK.
