Tent atmosphere at the Wiener Wiesn-Fest

Wiener Wiesn Festival

The fifth Wiener Wiesn Festival will be held in the autumn of 2015 against the backdrop of Vienna's Giant Ferris Wheel. Lively entertainment in a traditional costume atmosphere is on the program at Austria's biggest folk festival: three festival tents with a varied program of music await the visitors. Among other things, there are concerts by the Münchener Freiheit, the Edlseer, DJ Ötzi and band, Sumpfkröten, Volxrock and Saubartln. 400 hours of live music are on the program. The right culinary accompaniment to the beer and music is provided by local cuisine ranging from Wiener Schnitzel to Brettljause.

Province Days

On nine separate days, Austria's provinces will present their own customs, cuisine and music. The Wiener Wiesn Festival will start every day at 11.30 am with a hearty morning pint ("Frühschoppen"). Brass bands and groups showing the customs of each of the regions will perform. Admission to the Wiener Wiesn Festival is free until 6.00 pm; on Mondays and Tuesdays it is free all day.

Starting at 6.30 pm, the Wiesn Festival Party gets going in the festival tents with lots of live music. Party tickets cost from €35.20 per person if you book a table or from €40.20 per person for an individual ticket. The tickets can be purchased in advance or on the gate. After the great success of last year, there will be another traditional costume clubbing event this year for a younger audience (27 September, admission €10).

For the third time now, the Wojnar tent will be holding the Pink Wiener Wiesn Festival for the gay and lesbian community on October 2.

In addition to the three festival tents, the open-air Wiesndorf, with its pasture chalets and the festival stage, offers free entertainment for everyone until 1.00 am.
