Voice Mania

Marking the opening event of 20 years of Voice Mania for the tenth time is Balcanto on 3 November. Artistes sing, belt out and swing in a potpourri of music ranging from pop to classical from balconies in Vienna city center. The festival then continues with 19 evenings at Vindobona, Metropol, MuTh, Theater am Spittelberg and Peterskirche (Church of St. Peter).

Rock, Beatbox, Comedy

Legendary ensembles such as The Swingles (UK) and The Real Group (S) meet other audience favorites such as iNtrmzzo (NL) with vocal theater, basta (D) with perfect pop, SLIXS (D) with their own style "Vocal Bastard", Rock4 (NL) with their Beatles homage, The Cast (USA, CAN, CHILE, D) with opera pop, Cluster (I) with vocal fusion and Vocal Sampling (KUBA) in Latin Fever.

For the first time, Füenf (D), The Singing Pinguins (CH), Solala (S) and Sons of Pitches (UK) pitch in with comedy, hits, kitchen sound and vocal gymnastics. Talike Trio and Nobuntu from Madagascar/Zimbabwe touch audiences with polyphony and in the Bantu language. The cult troupe Maybebop (D) travels to Vienna with a new program – they've been at Voice Mania since the beginning.


Austria is represented among the top acts like never before: the LALÁ Vocalensemble with a wide range of styles, Wiener Blond with Wienerlied-beatbox-pop, the original Austrian Gesangskapelle Hermann, the Beat Poetry Club with debut CD, Das wird super as party show, Rhythm4 in vocal body percussion and 4ME from the ORF show "Die große Chance der Chöre". Newcomers are amusix and HALS. Beatbox to take your breath away is offered by record holders Beatboxerfii, the Austrian champions Chakrabreaker and the trio Mouth-o-matic.

Specials are "The Long Night of the A Cappella", "Voice Mania Short Cuts" – an evening with vocal artistry and beatboxing – and for the finale the "A Cappella Open Mic Casting Show" with new talents.
