SWITCH! x MURDA NOIZ

It’s getting bass heavy at Pratersauna this Friday! Well, it sorta always does, but whatever. DJ Blackley from the UK and Dave LXR from the Czech Republic will join a great lineup of local DJs that all have one goal in common: to make you jump up and down and party hard as f***!!

Good to know… if your birthday happens to fall on the 9th or 10th of December, you’ll get in for free!

Techno all night long

Pompadour & Friends with Florian Scheibein

Now, we’re not quite sure what this whole musical skyscraper thing is about. BUT we do know for sure that if you’re craving a House and Techno event, then this one is for you. Florian Scheibein, who some might know from the good ol’ Pratersauna, joins Philipp Blecha, Robin Ma`ar und Paul Panther in the Ponyhof to create a Techno night that’ll stay in your braincells for quite a while (or not, depending on how much you’re planning to consume)!

Bass beats sweet as candy

ZUCKERWATT w/ ADIEL

If you were expecting something pink, flossy and sugary after reading this headline, then you’re going to be disappointed. However, if some sweet Techno sounds appealing to you, then congratulations – you’re at the right address. Adiel will be turning it up at Grelle Forelle on Friday and it’s gonna be candy for your ears!

Dress to sweat for this party

ZARTBITTER w/ Métaraph, Farad, Dimitar Georgiev X Hosted by Funkroom

Métaraph, Farad and Dimitar Georgiev will be serving up an exciting genre mix of Techno, Hardtrance and Psy at the Lasterfloor while the Funkroom crew will take care of the Lusterfloor with a groovy-trippy Electro/Ghetto beats. Definitely get yourself over there if you’re in the mood for some serious dancing.

Go crazy at this Silent Disco

Silent Disco | WUK

Jaz in the City is hosting a Silent Disco: a party where every guest gets a pair of headphones which receive the music played by the DJs on their turntables. There’ll be all kinds of music played: Hip-Hop, House, Charts, and some Classics. The best thing is, you can always switch to a different channel if the music doesn’t suit you. If you’re new to the Silent Disco format, you should definitely check that out. If not, you already know you’ll be there. The only party where you can actually have a chat with someone without you two having to scream ‘WHAT??’ for the twentieth time.

Dive into a fulminant magic world full of artists, attractions and escalations

Glitz – The Show must go on

Glitz promises a lunatic freak show where they combine the power of musical, visual, and artistic dream effects. You will witness crazy visuals, extraordinary artists, freaks, fancy elves, clowns and wizards that make you feel feels that you just cannot describe with words. So join them under the opera for some serious party fun and enter a new state of mind (completely without taking any substances even!).

Better than your usual 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!

Get out for a night of live local Indie music

David Arcos und Alpha Romeo & Die Sommerreifen Live

Do you want to feel good this weekend? Whoa, that got personal. Sorry ’bout that. None of our business. But, we do think it’s very possible that these two artists could make someone feel good thanks to their laid back, Indie style and cool instrumental constellations. Just, you know, if you like feeling good. Up to you.

Check out this Turkish-Austrian sister and brother Rap duo!

Live@RadioKulturHaus: EsRAP

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

HALLYU 한류 K-POP PARTY @ Club-U || BTS SPECIAL

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.

 

Enjoy DJ Crystal O and some more sexy kind of drinking game!

Hits & Tits by Crystal O

We say Drum, you say Bass

THE HIVE presents MEFJUS + MAKSIM

This weekend, go and enjoy a wild Drum and Bass party at the legendary Flex. Not only one, or two, but nine DJs will be cranking up the volume there. That’s almost like a little festival just in one night. You’ll be sure to get your money’s worth!

Expect Techno everywhere you go

OUVERTUERE HOMEBASE x NHOAH (DE) x TECHNO VIENNA x YN COLLECTIVE

What’s better than a Techno party? We don’t have an answer either! The vibe of running through a club with several floors and the mix between dancing, screaming and being probably a little too tipsy is unique. If you’re into Techno parties, check this out!

If a party isn’t a proper party to you unless you feel the bass right in your face, then this is the right party for you! Five national and international DJs are giving you the best that DnB and House have to offer. Put your comfiest dancing shoes on, because this will be a long night!

Expand your mind at this Vienna Ted Talk

TEDxTUWien 2022: TURNING POINTS: Our Future, Our Responsibility

This year’s Ted Talks in Vienna will be centered around the theme of turning points. We can’t be 100% sure, but we’re pretty sure they’re not talking about roads and traffic. It’s possible that it could have more to do with turning points in our society. Either way, we’ll be going just so we can find out.

Learn how to draw like the pros

FILM & ZEICHNEN: ANIME SCHAUEN UND ZEICHNEN IM KINO!

In cooperation with studio linea the Filmhaus invites kids and teens to a very special screening event. First, they’ll show the the classic anime film Ponyo and after this illustrator and comic artist Payam Borumand will show how to draw the film’s characters as well as give some info on animating in general.

In case you don’t know the film, check out the trailer below:

A fleamarket with cake and spritzer?!

Modeflohmarkt Mon Ami

Mon Ami is hosting a Modeflohmarkt and you can go enjoy coffee, tea, cake, wraps and even Spritzer while you shop! Find new pieces or sell some of your own that you have no use for anymore. Have fun shopping, and don’t forget to register via mail if you wanna sell your stuff there.

Check out this concert!

Milky Chance

They do this music kind of thing. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to be related to any kind of milk. They’ll be singing about deep topics which will give you a warming feeling around your heart. If you have no plans for this evening, you should go!

Find your inner wild child at this 60s party

FREAK OUT! DER TRIP IN DIE 60’s & 70’s

Cabaret Fledermaus is calling all 60s lovers to come out for a dance to some old classics. The Beatles, The Who, The Doors and more will be rocking your boat on the dance floor. This party will be happening every Sunday so you’ve got no excuses but to get groovy there at least once.

A film with a unique focus: Human Rights

This Human World film festival 2022

This is Vienna’s 2nd largest film festival (and their 15th anniversary!) and one that comes with plenty of powerful messages in powerful films that will have you thinking about the big wide world.

In 11 days, This Human World plays various documentaries and fictional feature films, short films, animations, and experimental films, all revolving around the theme of human rights issues.

This festival puts into the spotlight the films that aim to encourage people to scrutinize and re-examine their views and raise awareness about the situations where human rights are being violated. Don’t keep going on about how the world’s turning to shit on your IG feed – get educated at this fascinating festival.

 

Have a Punsch by the water

PUNSCH am Wasser

Attention Punsch lovers! USUS am Wasser is opening its gates for you during the colder season as well. Instead of Spritzer and summer vibes, they’ll now serve up homemade Punsch and Maroni. So dust off your finest ugly Christmas sweaters and get out into the cold like the snow bunny you are (even if the snow is make believe because rarely ever snows in Vienna).

Icy fun and games at Badeschiff

ParadEis – Eisstockschießen, Punschdeck, Eisschwimmen

Just because summer’s gone doesn’t mean that the Badeschiff has closed its hatches. Quite the contrary! They made the boat fit for winter and offer you fun activities to get you through the colder season.

If you’ve got the moves on the ice and like yourself a bit of good old Eisstockschiessen (that’s curling in English) you can have some fun with it on deck. If you haven’t tried this before or have no idea what the hell it is, let us explain – you take a big ass flying saucer looking thing with a stick attached to it and slide it down the ice. The person to get theirs closest to a marker, wins! So it’s pretty much bocce made for ice ridden countries. Anyway, check it out – it can be a laugh, especially when adding the Punsch you can slurp on while you’re at it.

For anyone who’s feeling brave (and maybe a bit insane) they will leave their pool open for the first time during winter, so you can indulge in the frosty joys of ice swimming. Apparently it’s good for your health. But we’ll probably still stick to drinking steaming hot Punsch.
