Get crazy at this Techno experience

Techno Komet Pt.3

You really do need a good Techno party once in a while, it’s a must. This Friday, the folks from Techno Komet are organizing part three of their big techno party series at Pratersauna. Not only will there be a welcome drink, but also a big ass line-up that is looking bonkers. (Even we’re not sure how to survive that night)

Be sure to check out the line-up!

Watch this line of musicians from abroad perform on stage

MAKRO w/ Legowelt Live + Pangaea

On Friday, Fluc + Fluc Wanna have invited a couple of DJs from far far away to balm your eager eyes and sound-hungry ears. Maybe the UK and the Netherlands aren’t quite as exotic as we made it sound, but the music ensembles Hessle Audio and Clone Records are still worth checking out if you’re ready to hear new tunes from outside of Austria.

The club’s headliner, Legowelt, will be supported by other new talents you should definitely check out. To do that, grab your ticket and head out with your mask!

Chill out between the sky and the water

mondGarten – billie jean | andreas weisz || pointOFview |||

Is it THE Billie Jean from the famous Michael Jackson song they’re talking about here? Proooobably not.

Is it still gonna be a fun event? Proooobably yes!

If you know the waterside location, Himmel und Wasser, you know that they always have nice tunes with some good vibes going on. So move your cute butt over to this cool location and have a blast.

Dig through the racks at this vintage clothing flea market

Summer Vintage Kilo Pop Up Store • Vienna • Vinokilo

Vintage Kilo Sale is back this weekend! Need a fur coat to go with those fur panties you bought last year? Come on out and start pillaging through rows of vintage treasures. There will be great music and deals you don’t want to miss!

This time you’ll be able to book time-slots, to avoid big crowds. So be sure to get your tickets!

 

Dance and celebrate artistic freedom and liberty

ImPulsTanz Festival Lounge Extended – A-Side

The Kursalon is hosting a very special party event series together with ImPulsTanz and the first half of it is taking place on Friday!

Headlining on stage will be Yugoslavian/Swedish artist, GNUČČI, and a DJ lineup that looks very promising. So, if you’re into creative parties and dance with lots of talented dancers, get in on this party.

Also: be sure to check out their lineup on their event page!

Get lit and chill at this event

Sommerträume ’21

This is a party with an eco-friendly twist. This is is all about feeling connected with nature, whilst doing all the other fun things you do at a festival – getting drunk in the sun in some park. Yep, that’s what Sommerträume ’21 is about. We think. It should be ‘chill’ if you, or we, were to describe it in one word.

Good to know: Keep checking their page for further details and the line-up!

Check out the FREUD show - no psychoanalysis happing here

Freud Live @Chelsea

The indie Rock ban out of Austria, FREUD, is back on stage and they’ll be doing their thing at the Chelsea.

Music from Graz with love!

FM4 urban jungle am GLOBE WIEN OPEN AIR * Granada LIVE

Granada will be playing live during the FM4 urban jungle at the GLOBE this Saturday. To say Austrian-Neo Pop band, Granada, is ‘Eh ok’ would be a big understatement (see what we did there?).

The 5 man band from Graz consists of accordionist, Alexander Xidi Christoph, guitarist, Luskacz Custos, singer, and founder, Thomas Petritsch, singer, multi-instrumentalist and jack-of-all-trades, Jürgen Schmidt, on the bass and Roland Hanslmeier on the drums.

Travel back in time and let loose

Wannabe – Best of 90’S & 00’S

You know what you gotta do if you wanna be her lover, right? (Hint: you gotta get with her friends). But do you also know what you gotta do if you wanna be shaking it to all to your favourite hits from the 90’s and 00’s?

Well, it couldn’t be simpler – just head to Club Titanic this Saturday night and join in on their infamous Wannabe 90’s and 00’s party!

Become a hero for a day at this outdoor bar in the square of heroes

Am Heldenplatz mit Freunden ft. KSOT & Sky Nightingale + Friends

At the Heldenplatz this summer, the Heldenbar will be back this summer, inviting people to lounge and sip cocktails. With a list of DJs on the cards, the Heldenbar will be preparing to provide you and your #plus1 with an array of music. They’ll be kicking off the season with KSOT Soundsystem and Sky Nightingale & Friends this Saturday.

 

Watch those dancers bust a move

Red Bull Dance Your Style Austria 2021

It’s time to battle! But don’t worry, this is not gonna be of the bloody sort. It’s a dance battle that’s going down on the grounds of the MQ this Saturday.

Various talented dance performers will compete against each other to find out who can move their bodies best to the beat. And it’s up to you to decide who that is, as there’s gonna be no jury. The audience will decide who will win the title and go to the world finals in South Africa.

Celebrate summer in the sauna

Das Sommerfest

It’s summertime at the Pratersauna, and that means it’s gonna get hot (and probably a little sweaty) on the dancefloor.

But that’s a good thing, right? Because there are going to be nine DJs playing on three different floors. So, you can be sure that there will be enough banging beats to get you partying through to the morning. And if it gets too hot, you can always take a quick dip in their pool. Just saying.

Bust your face open in some epic post punk mosh pits!

ALPHA STRATEGY (Kanada) + Autor (Wien)

O,h haven’t we all missed injuring ourselves because we’re having a little too much fun at a concert? This Saturday at Fluc, you can claim back all of the head banging that you’ve missed in the last months!

Canadian, Alpha Strategy, and Viennese band, Autor, will get your Post Punk heart pumping while you jump around. Both bands are nothing new to Vienna’s blooming punk scene and are more than ready to host an amazing night!

Make sure you check out Autor and Alpha Strategy’s goods on band camp and don’t forget to bring one of your  3Gs so Mister Rona-Rona doesn’t turn you into an Oma! (get it?)

 

 

Shake your hips and bump your fists at this concert!

TAKESHI’S CASHEW- POTATO BEACH

Get that does of Sych-Funk and Sych-Garage realness this Saturday at B72! The newly signed crowd by record label Laut & Luise from Berlin, Takeshi Cashew, has taken the world by storm and they’ll be playing new tunes on stage in Vienna.

Their music makes you feel like slurping a Turkish coffee on a tiny wooden boat (if you haven’t done this, you should) – very cozy but very much alive. Supported by the fairly new Garage band, Potato Beach, they will give you all the heebie-jeebies.

Check out their stuff below and be sure to get your tickets fast as they are selling fairly quickly!

Head over to your Thursday rooftop bar party

Catch some culture, tunes, and street food at Das Werk's summer terrace

They’re calling the terrace – KulturTerrasse, and they’re back this year! It’s where street art meets music, meets visual art, meets street food, meets one very chilled atmosphere at which to enjoy a drink with friends. Find all the info you need about what’s happening on the specific day you’re going on their website.

 

Look at six decades of work at this exhibition

Elfie Semotan “Haltung und Pose” @KunstHausWien

The Kunst Haus Wien is showcasing the works of Austrian photographer, Elfie Semotan, until the end of August.

The exhibition called ‘Haltung und Pose’ (Attitude and Pose) is a collection of six decades of work. Made up of various portraits, landscape pictures, and still-life works, the exhibition shows the many facets of the artist.

So if you’re interested in art and photography, this is a must-visit kind of exhibition!

The beginning of the big culture festival

Wiener Festwochen 2021

This multidisciplinary art festival offers up 5 month-long events of the city embracing the culture and arts scene from a range of different angles. In past years, some of the stuff in the program has been avant-garde to the point of being confusing, and some of the stuff caters to the age-old crowd that has been going to the festival for years. One thing is for sure –  you’ll always experience something new at the Wiener Festwochen.

June 1 will mark the beginning of the 5-week festival, during which every night there will be something happening. You should check out the program now if you’re into this sort of ‘tang.

Get your yoga fix at this special event

Paddeln (DO/Thursday)/Supyoga (SO/Sunday), alte Donau (Sunsetversion)

Summer days are around the corner and you haven’t started working out? Well, this event will have Vanessa Witt taking you out on the water to do some stand-up paddleboarding on the Donau and at some point, you’ll stop to do some yoga.

And you can do all of this whilst catching the sunset happening over the river’s horizon. Be sure to get your tickets before they sell out!

This is THE hotspot for cool events this summer!

GLOBE Wien Open Air

Now that people are getting vaccinated and Miss Roni is slowly packing up her bags, Marx Halle is opening their Outdoor Area, which hosts over 1000 seats!

From June till September, you can enjoy a smattering of cultural events and shake the dust off your lockdown brain. There even is an option to pre-order snacks and drinks for your table! Check out the GLOBE Wien Open Air’s program!

Good to know … be sure to keep an eye on the weather conditions when you book a ticket, as events won#t be happening if storms are.

Check out their FAQs!

Try out some good beers at this event

Ottakringer Bierfest 2021

It’s that time again when the beloved city’s beer brewery, Ottakringer Brauerei, comes to life for summer.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19-restrictions, they won’t be able to host their annual Braukultur-Wochen, but they’ve set up the Ottakringer Bierfest, which is actually fairly similar to the Braukultur-Wochen.

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 works). So be sure to come by and enjoy a cold beer from their assortment of craft beer and normal beers while doing….yoga.

Be sure to check out their program!

Enjoy a summer full of events and adventures

Catch some culture at Kultursommer 2021

The art and culture festival, Kultursommer Wien 2021, is made up of 100 events happening over 40 Days, at 40 different locations.

They’ve got a lot of talented music acts, workshops, parties, and performances lined up.

Starting this Saturday, you can dive into everything from dance classes, to parties. (whoop whoop!) You should definitely check out the Kultursommer program and build some of its events into your summer plans.

Have drinks in Stadtpark

Le Jardin Afterwork | Kleinod Stadtgarten

Don’t you deserve a few works after drink? Wait, something seems off there. Oh well. If you can’t tell, we’ve already started drinking and work isn’t even over. But, this Thursday you can have drinks in the beautiful Stadtpark of Vienna. Get out and do some fancy drinking as opposed to the lonely at-home drinking you typically do after work.

Good to know: This event takes place every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month!

Get your body moving and dance your heart out

Dance or catch a dance performance at ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival

Vienna’s dance festival of all dance festivals, ImPulsTanz, is back in 2021 and they’ve sure got a lot of workshops and performances lined up that are worth doing your happy dance about.

There will be multiple performances and hundreds of workshops. So get your dancing pants on and get yourself tickets for one of the performances or register for one of the classes.

They’ve also got a special program called Shake the Break for kids happening.

Check out the Impulstanz program. 

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. A good dose of culture and cabaret is going to be served up to you right in the park under the stars. It’s very much tailored to be Corona-safe, but probably not from mosquitos. Check out their programme!

 

 

Get cultured this summer

Get cultured in between all the time in the sun

After a long dry spell, Vienna’s famous art and culture institutions are back and there’s a raft of exhibitions you should check out.

We’ve put together a guide to the cool art exhibits taking place this summer, so you don’t have to spend time looking for them yourselves!
