From September 9 to 11, the top-class Waves Vienna music festival will take place in the city for the eleventh time. With over 60 international acts ranging from alternative and singer-songwriter to electronic and club music, the festival will be held in Vienna's 9th district again. The festival center is located in the WUK, but concerts also take place in surrounding venues and in the Canisius Church.
Numerous live performances
Apart from a few bigger acts, Waves is about discovering unknown talents. This year mainly bands from Austria and the neighboring countries – like Lisa Pac (AT), Pippa (AT), Burkini Beach (DE), and Oxford Drama (PL).
East meets West
This time, true to the motto "East meets West", the festival focuses on the countries along the Danube. These will be at the heart 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.
