What a line-up. Seriously. What a friggin' line-up. Joining forces with the magazines THE GAP and NOISEY, HEUER am Karlsplatz did it again and gathered fine musicians in one place for its annual Akustik Woodstock Festival. This is going to be good – not to mention the Spritzer creations and food these guys are famous for.
