Fifteenth Vienna Blues Spring

There's classic Delta and Chicago blues, rock, soul and electric blues, as well as boogie, interpreted by international stars and the best of the Viennese scene. This is how the blues feeling is created in the midst of springtime in Vienna.

Concert series

Most of the concerts are held at the music venue the "Reigen", the center of the festival.  In the line-up: the last real Louisiana bluesman Lil‘ Jimmy Reed (aka Leon Atkins), Steve Guyger, Larry Garner, the young Vanja Sky, John Jagger (Micks Neffe) with the Vargas Blues Band, the Hamburg Blues Band with Chris Farlowe and Mickey Moody, Woodstock legend Miller Anderson and many more.

In spring, the blues can be heard at other performances venues in Vienna:

  • the Mojo Blues Band at Theater Akzent (as every year on Palm Sunday)
  • Martin Pyrker performs the traditional boogie night in very special style: accompanied by his daughter Sabine unplugged at Mozarthaus Vienna. Hermann Posch also plays here – in a trio and unamplified.
  • Peter, the last of the Schrammel dynasty, makes music with Hermann Posch on another evening in a totally atypical Schrammel band at the House of Music.
