Vienna Summerbreak Festival
Young people from all over Europe will also be celebrating the end of summer in Vienna again this year at the Vienna Summerbreak Festival. From 1.00 pm on the Saturday (2 September), the venerable Ringstrasse between the Vienna State Opera and City Hall transforms into the biggest open-air dance floor in Vienna for the Streetparade.
Dancing on the Ring and on City Hall Square
Numerous music trucks with DJs and live acts make their way along the magnificent boulevard towards City Hall. Thousands of visitors dance and party for a cosmopolitan and tolerant Vienna. Hot beats from techno and trance to electro and hip hop to disco and reggae resound around the Ring.
The Streetparade reaches its climax on City Hall Square from 5 pm - with national and international DJs, who present the finest electronic, house and techno sounds. After-show parties begin at various locations throughout the city from 10 pm.
The Vienna Summerbreak Festival ends on the Sunday (3 September) at a pool party in the Pratersauna with chilled DJ sounds starting at 5.00 pm.
