The opening event of Voice Mania is Balcanto. 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 for 23 days at the Metropol, Theater am Spittelberg and Peterskirche (Church of St. Peter).
Rock, Beatbox, Comedy
In 2018, Voice Mania offers the rare opportunity to experience Rajaton - one of the best Finnish groups around - unamplified. The top Swedish act is formed by the three gentlemen of Solala. Their very distinctive a cappella style are kitchen table sessions – not only a hit on a YouTube.
Many German vocal artists will be there: Among them the creative cult band Maybebop, the established Calmus Ensemble playing with the most diverse genres, and the new generation represented by echo and Die Kinder vom See.
The Austrian ensembles present a varied offering: Offbeat brings eccentricity, the Stagelab Choir songs from Ed Sheeran to Justin Bieber, Das wird super a great pop party show. The Vienna Jewish Choir contributes to the revival of the Yiddish song. At Peterskirche (Church of St. Peter), the former Vienna Boys' Choir members VieVox touch audiences with sacred music. Gesangskapelle Hermann delivers pointedly performed forays through the Vienna biotope. Safer Six present their anniversary program "[zwanz'g]".
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.
