Everything you need to do this weekend in Vienna

A festival dedicated to Vienna's culture of wine

Neustifter Kirtag 2022

This festival is a family fun event during the day, which turns into a good ol’ fashioned Austrian party at night. Neustift am Walde, an area of Vienna’s 19th district, is quite famous for its annual ‘Kirtag’ (that had to take an unfortunate break because of Miss Rona last year).

The Neustifter Kirtag is a wine fair that sees lots of people dress up in Lederhosen and Dirndl and enjoy those Austrian festival vibes. This month, it will be back with three days of some heavy wine drinking and culinary feasting. As well as the traditional procession, some neat togetherness, the chance to buy wine stock for the next 500 years, and one of the best views of the city. Find more info on the programme on their website.

Better than your usual Mischung

ISTROS presents Wiener Mischung

Wanna start your weekend the right way? Then go to Istros rooftop bar this Friday where you can hum along (or let loose and belt it out!) to some sweet Electronic tunes by Wiener Mischung, sip damn tasty cocktails and watch the sun setting over our beloved Vienna. Also, no entry fee to pay!

Feel the summer feels at this open air concert

Zug nach Wien

Are you ‘ready to Pop-Alternative?’ (See what we did there?) The Viennese band ‘Zug nach Wien’ is celebrating the release of their new single ‘Nur so ein Gefühl’ in the beautiful Soundgarden of Szene Wien this Friday! Be ready to sing along (whether you know the lyrics or not) to local live music, drink cold beer and eat delicious ‘überbackene Brote.’ Open air concert-love here we come (unless it rains, then we’ll just have a blast indoors).

Get emotional

Matthew Mole

Matthew Mole is a South African singer and songwriter who has earned multiple nominations AND awards for his newest album ‘Ghost’ and he’s here to perform it for you! Like, other people will be there too but it’s really for you. Really. He’s toured over half the globe already and now he’s finally coming to Vienna. His Folk album has more than just good vibes, the stories behind the songs are truly inspiring as well.

Bop your head along to some dope Rap music 

Apollo Brown / Skyzoo / Guilty Simpson / Rapper Big Pooh

Rapper and Producer Apollo Brown out of Detroit is coming to Vienna to rock (or should we rather say rap?) the stage together with Skyzoo, Guilty Simpson and Rapper Big Pooh (please no questions about that name). They have lots of songs together. Apollo has also produced a good amount of Big Pooh’s Discography. Check it out, here:

 

Go crazy at this massive DJ party

Sun & Moon – DAY & NIGHT Pool Festival w/ Oxidaksi & Klopfgeister

There’s no better way to celebrate summer vibes than at a Pratersauna pool party with a DJ line up so big, it pretty much counts as festival. This loooooong night of Psytrance, Progressive Psy, Psychedelic and Hi–Tech will be comin’ at ya from 12 DJs ffrom five different countries.

Feel the beat

Synoid

Indulge in different types of Techno beats at this Berliner party that’ll keep you dancing until the sun rises…on Tuesday. Carefully selected DJs and live acts will make this a night you won’t forget (or forget, depending on how much and what you consume)!

Friday night is club night

KLUBNACHT w/ Roman Flügel, Sumi & Dzc.

On Friday you can get some serious dancing done at Praterstrasse. We’re not talking about the actual street here, but the club. Which just has the same name as the street its located in. So it shouldn’t be very hard to find, even if you take your pregaming a little too serious. Bringing the beats will be Roman Flügel, Sumi &andhttps://www.facebook.com/events/458111352837473 Dzc.

Life's a beach (party)

Disco Beach 2022

If you’re looking for a beach party on a Friday night, Vienna City Beach Club has got you covered! This Friday, you’ll find a Disco Beach raging on the sands of this chilled bar by the river. Party away into the night to Pop songs while enjoying one (or more) drink(s).

Swim and dance on a boat

COSMIC CRUISE. by Tropical Thunder

The DJ Collective, Tropical Thunder, has a residency at Badeschiff and we’re so happy we could strip down and canonball! We’re not saying we endorse naked canonball-ing but you can definitely swim – like a normal person. Every second Friday, you can enjoy one of these talented crew members spinning the decks whilst going for a refreshing (and clothed) dive in one of Vienna’s most loved swimming locations.

Have a dance workout at this musical gym

Your 80s Workout

Sweat out all the greasy fast food you know you shouldn’t have eaten but still did this week, with the Wild Boy (that’s a DJ, in case you were unaware) as he takes you through one of his workouts. With all the classic 80s tunes to put you through your paces in a night made solely for people who want to dance, Mr. Motivator style.

Take over the city with your bike or rollerblades

Friday Nightskating 2022

Friday Nightskating is back for the season! Ring-a-ding-ding (that’s your bike bell resounding amongst hundreds of others on the night skate). Ever been surprised by a horde of skaters and cyclists passing you by in the middle of the night on Vienna streets? Rest assured, this wasn’t your mind playing tricks on you, but rather it was the crowd doing the Friday Nightskate. This is a recurring summer event in Vienna that is a whole lot of fun! Rollerblade and bicycle enthusiasts meet every Friday at 9pm on Heldenplatz to follow their passion in cruising through the streets of Vienna (that’s right, they even shut down streets for this event!)

Plus: All the routes are different every time, so you might discover some places you’ve never been to before in Vienna.

Hip plus Hop equals a party

Hip Hop Fridays

Join the carnage of this crazy party, as ROXY promises a serious amount of top quality Hip Hop every Friday. We would say be careful, or be on your best behaviour, but we know it’s probably going to be chaos, so you don’t really have to heed those calls for calm. Go nuts!

This festival of vintage motors brings racing, parades and music

Vienna Classic Days 2022

Along with the sounds of some sexy engines revving, this weekend-long vintage car festival also features music to waltz to as the race warms up at the Rathaus. Lovers of all things vintage will also enjoy parades along the Ringstrasse, a picnic in the park, and a V.H.P. Lounge (that’s for Very Happy People, of course).

Gather round the fire and have a chill party

Sommerfeuer 2022

Dancing around a blazing camp fire, only surrounded by nature and tunes that bring good vibes – what may sound like the standard programme of every hippie commune can be experienced at the funky waterside location, Himmel und Wasser, this Saturday.

Grab some friends (and maybe some marshmallows – there’s gonna be a campfire, after all) and join in on the fun at this very cool party.

Music straight from Mother Russia

Russian Gentlemen Club – featuring Cornelius Obonya

This four-piece band consisting of the Russian gentlemen, Georgij Makazaria, Aliosha Biz, Alexander Shevchenko and Roman Grinberg, will bring you an evening full of nostalgic folk tunes out of Russia. So head over to the Praterbühne on Saturday for a musical journey to Mother Russia (read that in a heavy Russian accent).

You can get a taste of their traditional, yet lively sound below:

Prepare your own special dance ritual

Höhenfluc | Streamlines Labelnight N°2

If you’re looking for a Techno experience that’ll keep you on your feet all night and make you wonder ‘what the hell happened last night?’ then this event is just for you. As the evening progresses, you’ll be caught in dance rituals that’ll leave you in a trance-y state – so make sure you have the next few days off so you can come back down to earth!

Feel the bass thumping through your body

ACID TECHNO TECHNO CLUB | DAY & NIGHT

The Acid Techno Techno Club invites you to join in on the Techno rave fun this Saturday. They also invited a stellar line-up of talented DJs to provide you with some fine Techno beats, because what would a Techno party be without Techno? Did you get it?

A night of Drum and Bass in all its shapes and sizes

Beat It presents Metalheadz Vienna

A whole bunch of Drum and Bass will be making it into your earholes this Saturday if you’re at Flex, as they’ll turn up their mega sound system. With a bunch of different DnB heads getting up on the decks, you may well be surprised by what you hear and find yourself dancing like mad to it.

Party to some iconic Pop music

KEN Club ! – Eis am Stiel feat. Gitti Reinhardt

Carribean vibes at the Danube

DANCEHALL BBQ

Are you dreaming of hopping on a plane to the Carribean but lack the monetary means? Then we have an alternative proposal for you! Hop on the U6 to USUS am Wasser where an awesome BBQ party is taking place. With DJs Black, Mykal and Father Diaz pumping out tropical Dancehall jams and tasty Jamaican specialties on the grill it’s gonna be just as good as the real deal.

Like K-pop? Then you're gonna love this party!

HALLYU 한류 K-HIPHOP NIGHT @ Club-U

If we’re examining some of the most significant changes in the music landscape over the past decade, one of them has to be the explosion in popularity of K-pop (that’s ‘Korean Pop’ to you, grandad) in the west.

If the songs of artists such as BTS, Twice, Blackpink and TVXQ make you go weak at the knees, this is the night for you to party and sing your heart out.

Be warned: you may wake up the next day having messaged all your friends to get the same floppy haircut as you and learn your new dance moves.

 

Join the the crazy fun at U4's weekly Saturday party

BEHAVE! X U4 Vienna

Flea market shopping but make it wild

Wilder Flohmarkt

There will be a flea market happening at Wild im West this Saturday. What’s so wild about it? Apart from the usual flea market fun, there’ll also be a band and DJs playing on site. That means you’ll have the right music to do your I-just-made-one-hell-of-a-bargain-dance to.

Have an awesome time by the Danube

Sonntags am Wasser

What do you get if you combine swimming, food and drinks and loaaaads of music and cultural events? That’s right, a damn nice event at the Danube! The waterside location, USUS am Wasser, will host such an open air event on Sunday, complete with some nice tunes and a whole lotta summer vibes.

Catch a concert from the Bob Dylan of Praterstern live

Der Nino aus Wien

Considered one of Vienna’s best songwriters of his generation, or even the Bob Dylan of Praterstern as some call him, Nino is not a man you can really afford to miss. This Sunday, he will be on stage at Praterbühne, performing his classics, as well as his more recent chart successes. With his original interpretation of Wienerlied and Hirschstettner Soul, he’ll be enchanting the audience, as he always does.

A short film festival under the starry summer sky

To make things short, just check out the programme.

Beer and bites at the brewery

Ottakringer Bierfest 2022

It’s that time again when the beloved city’s beer brewery, Ottakringer Brauerei, comes to life for summer, as they’ve set up the Ottakringer Bierfest.

Most importantly, if you ask us, there will be lots of beer flowing – different kinds of beer produced in their brewery, to be specific.

This year, there will even be something called ‘beer yoga’ (however that’s supposed to work). So be sure to come by and enjoy a fresh cold beer from their broad assortment while doing… yoga.

To check out what will be happening, have a look at the programme for more details.

Listen to music and munch your way through food stands at the Rathaus

Filmfestival Rathausplatz 2022

Ah, the joys of living in Vienna. There is something quite unique going on every summer in this city’s heart, right at the Rathausplatz. From July to September a great variety of concerts ranging from classic ballets, operas and Jazz to Pop and dance will be shown on a huge screen in front of the Rathaus. For free, we might add.

There’s a huge screen installed in front of the beautiful town hall, with enough seats to accommodate a small village from Vorarlberg. The films begin at sundown. However, from 11am onwards, there are a plethora of food stands (this year, it’s 22 in total), featuring cuisine from around the globe. We feel like you can find nearly anything from every corner of this world there. It’s a culinary heaven!

So enjoy sitting in the shade, have a Spritzer and wait for the film to begin. Throughout the summer, most films will be played twice. Most nights, there are also live performances of some sort before the screenings. Check out the full programme.

Have a fancy meal in the palace gardens

Freiluft Tafel Abende: Fine Dining mit Spitzenköchen

When was the last time you’ve treated yourself culinarily? We’re not talking grabbing a pizza from the joint around the corner (nothing wrong with that tho’), we’re talking a fancy meal, prepared by gourmet chefs, with an excellent wine pairing on top. Oh, so it’s been a while? Well, then this is your lucky day, because you can have just that almost every day in the beautiful atmosphere of the garden at Palais Auersperg!

Have a look at all the top chefs who’ll be serving up dinner and you’ll be making your way over there faster than you can say ‘Weinbegleitung’.

Enjoy this weekly picnic where everyone is welcome

Big Gay Picnic 2022

Bring your blankets, food, drinks, games, friends, family, pets, and whatever else you wanna take with you and head over to Donauinsel to hang out with the LGBTQIA+ community for a chill picnic. Enjoy the sunshine, meet cool like-minded people and most importantly have a whole lot of fun. Just look for the rainbow flag hoisted next to the Wasserspielplatz.

Let out your big belly laughs at these culture and cabaret events happening in a park

Theater im Park

When a former royal garden opens up for the entertainment of us peasants, like the garden of the Palais Schwarzenberg is doing for the summer-long Theater im Park, it might be time to dust off that suit and dress you got in the back of your closet. Ok, you won’t need to dress up for this as it’s a nice casual affair. A good dose of culture, theater and cabaret is going to be served up to you right in the park under the stars if you buy a ticket for one of the shows going on all summer. Check out their programme!

Find some Fun activities for your kids

WIENXTRA-KINDERAKTIV/FERIENSPIEL
