From 28 to 30 September, the top-class Waves Vienna music festival will take place in the city for the seventh 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 WUK, where the festival's headquarters will be situated, concerts and performances will also be held at more unusual venues such as the Schubert Theater and the café-bistro Clash.
Numerous live performances
The Indie rock band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah from Brooklyn pays a visit to Waves this year, as does the English producer Forest Swords, which causes a sensation with its contemporary, sometimes unsettling interpretation of dub sounds. Client Liaison bring melodic pop from Australia to Vienna. Also exciting is the performance of the young singer/songwriter Be Charlotte from the UK with her Intelligent Pop.
The Austrian music scene is also strongly represented and offers plenty to be discovered: Black Palms Orchestra, Kommando Elefant, Little Big Sea, Lulu Schmidt, At Pavillon, Louie Austen and many more.
This year's guest countries are Italy and the Czech Republic, and they will be the focus of the festival's live concerts and of the Waves Vienna conference. The music conference on 29 September and the workshop day on 30 October will both take place at WUK.
