Everything you need to do this weekend in Vienna

When coffee meets fancy-pancy dancy

64. Wiener Kaffeesiederball

If you are a coffee lover and like to dress up this is a dream come true. Hofburg is being transformed into a huge fancy-pancy cafe once a year and you have the chance to be part of it. You will enjoy the best of Viennese coffeehouse culture and take it to the dance floor straight after along with some international music. Trust us you don’t want to miss out on this adventure for your senses.

The event’s sold out, but there are still a couple tickets left in some of these cafes. So if you want to go, make sure to stop by one of these coffee places.

Take that polar plunge!

EISSCHWIMMEN #1

We dare you to go for the polar plunge 2023. Trust us, this is exactly the kind of reset button you need right now. Get up, go outside and take this freezing dive. It will ease all your intrusive and self destructive thoughts and bring you straight back to reality. You will only focus on one thing: HOW F** COLD THIS IS! And no worries you will be instructed and guided through this shivering process by professional ice swimmer Josef Köbel.

Who's the murderer? You?

Drag Krimi Dinner

Ever wanted to be part of a crime but not an actual crime? Here’s your chance. Jump into the role of a witness, detective, or maybe even the murderer at ‘Drag Krimi Dinner’ at ‘Vindobona’. Go refresh those spying skills you used to have as a child and get ready for a night full of mystery and drag. YES… you heard right! The most gorgeous Austrian drag queens will be there to pep up your special evening.

Ever actively listened to Electronic music?

Hör ma sich im LOFT

Listen, learn and talk. That’s the motto at Loft. You will have a chance to get a VIP insight on what Electronic musicians are currently working on or if you are a musician, even better. This is all about forming your opinion on unreleased music and exchanging thoughts and opinions afterwards.

Dance till you drop at this party

BOASTY – w/ SPECIAL GUEST: DJ ZOLA

For this edition of their event series Boasty, the Loft has invited special guest DJ Zola. Together with resident DJs Mykal and Father Diaz she’ll fire up the dancefloor with the hottest Afrobeats, Dancehall and Hip Hop tunes and you know what that means: lots of swinging hips!

A night of Techno Funk to rave along to

FUNKROOM Umwelt Tezibel

Funkroom is a somewhat deceptive name, as this is maybe not the funk you’d expect. What you can expect instead is something that could described as ‘Techno Funk.’ If that is a thing. Could be a thing. We shall claim it right now as a thing! So if you are looking to experience more Techno Funk in your life, then Fluc is where you need to be this Friday night.

Upgrade your night with this party

Upgrade Ravenight feat. Forbidden Society

What’s better than Drum’n’Bass filled nights at the Donaukanal? We can tell you: not much! The Flex is hosting a kick-ass rave party this Friday with a bunch of talented local DJs lined up. So go there and get yor rave on!

Bar meets club, meets pizza at Praterstrasse

SONIC RESISTANCE w/ Boris Vinarskiy, Fritello Tonato, Katia Curie & Nizar Sarakbi

Do you feel like losing track of time and coming home when other people are just getting up? Then Sonic Resistance is the perfect party for you. The Praterstrasse club already has an awesome DJ lineup waiting for you. Dance till your feet hurt and maybe snack a piece of their pizza after shaking your booty like crazy to the banging tunes!

Get crazy at this Techno experience

Techno Komet pres. MARK MICHAEL

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 another edition of their big party series at Grelle Forelle. Not only will there be welcome shots, but also a big-ass lineup that is looking bonkers. Even we’re not sure how to survive that night.

Good to know… if your birthday falls on this date, you’ll pay no entry fee!

Come just as you are to this inclusive party

COSMONAUGHTY

Everyone is welcome and anything goes at this wild party. There will be live performances and a solid night of celebrating until 6am at Camera Club. Dress up as whatever want and enjoy a night of inclusiveness and debauchery.

Go absolutely nuts at this queer-friendly party

G.SPOT – „THE RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT“

G.Spot is a party that’s all about ‘queers and flintas and friends checking in and freaking out’, in the words of the hosts. There’s 80s-2000s, Latin, Pop, R’n’b, Hip-Hop and more waiting for your booty and its dance moves. Rumors say there is also a free shot upon entry…let’s see.

Go and Werk the dancefloor

WERKNACHT

Two floors of amazing Techno and House are calling you! They’re calling you to the beat so it sounds like ‘you. you. you. you. you.’ Can you hear it? Bernd Amman, Bori b2b Rantom and Maddest will be doing their thing on the Laster Floor, while Olorr, Tj Hicks, Am End Marek are taking care of the Luster Floor. Definitely get yourself over there if you’re in the mood for some serious dancing!

Techno meets girl power

Fluffig x Ivy Room

Girl power is going Techno. Fluffig will host a special night with some of the best female DJs Vienna has to offer, Anna Ullrich. Joining her is special guest Ivy Room. We think that’s all we need to say to encourage you to go!

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

Glitz – Peace, Love & Flowerpower

Glitz promises a lunatic freak show that lets you escape mundane daily life with 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!).

Dance yourself back to the future at this free night of retro tunes

Back on the Dancefloor 80er, 90er, 00er

There are some who would argue (correctly) that music was at its finest back in the 80s and 90s. Perhaps we’re biased, but those synthesizers the size of a small factory and drum machines that required a PhD in computer programming produced a sound like no other. This free night promises the greatest hits of the 80s, 90s and 2000s. And their budget-friendly drink specials will have you dancing the robot in no time.

Don't let the weekend drag at this drag-a-licious buffet with live performances

Queens Brunch at Villa Vida Cafe

While this event doesn’t feature a valet massaging your jaw to aid the mastication of your royal dinner (alas), the Queen’s Brunch at the Villa Vida is undoubtedly a heap of fun. Featuring Europe’s tastiest international drag and queer performers, you are being served a great dose of entertainment in addition to all the fine food and drinks. There’s gonna be a drag-a-licious all-you-can-eat buffet with vegan options available and all-you-can-drink ‘bottomless’ mimosas! So grab your tickets asap darling!

Listen to the fresh tunes of up-and-coming bands

Werckmeister & Disco Cats LIVE im rhiz Wien

If you wanna treat yourself to a night of Indie music, head over to das rhiz this Saturday, where the local bands Werckmeister and Disco Cats will be performing. Fresh sounds are guaranteed!

Here’s a sweet little preview of what to expect:

Rap and Hip-Hop made in Austria

Skero & BumBum Kunst: Maasnbriada Live

West Coast hip-hop meets Austrian dialect – that’s how you could describe the music of Skero and BumBum Kunst.

Sounds like something you’d enjoy? Then you’re in luck, as you can catch the two Maasnbriada (as they call themselves) this Friday live at the Chelsea.

Get your feeling overdose

Greyshadow live @ Chelsea

This guy will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride with his melancholic indie-pop tunes. Just don’t expect to leave the concert feeling like a ray of sunshine, but hey, misery loves company, right?

Balm for your soul

Musikheilkunde @ Ponyhof

Join this party and experience an unforgettable night filled with good music, good drinks and good company. We can’t really actually guarantee you’ll like every single person there but, hey, maybe a little bad company is your thing? You don’t want to miss it!

Can't hear you, it's buzzin'

dobel (dj set) // Alk Torres // Bianco Becky // Blechhütte

The beats will be so heavy, you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of a construction site. Get ready to feel the bass so hard, it’ll make your fillings shake loose. Come one, come all, and let’s turn this club into a extravaganza.

No rave, no fun

PUSH x ZEMENT (Berlin) invites Linn Elisabet

Get ready for an unforgettable night of raw techno and fast-paced hardgroove that will make your ears bleed… in the best way possible. Come one, come all, and let’s make this a night to remember (or not remember, depending on how much Red Bull you consume). Become the owner of the dance floor!

An intimate free party

Jux & Tollerei im Kramladen

The crowd at Kramladen have invited awesome DJs for this week’s party, for which they’re very excited and you should be too. This Saturday, get yourself down to the Gürtel for one of Vienna’s most intimate and free mini raves!

Party till you lose your senses

Rush hour rel. pres. SOULBLAST

There’s a smashing Dance/Electronic bonanza happening at Fluc this Saturday. It’s gonna be a dope one as the all-round Electronic talent Soulblast is set to join as special guest. And the supporting line-up seems just as promising.

With local artists like Veneno, Dot-B, da Monch and Hardez taking part in the fun, we already know that your ears and bodies will be exhausted afterwards (in a good way, obviously).

Always follow your impulse

Impulse w/ Klangkuenstler

What’s your first reaction when you hear the word Techno? ‘Well, that’s just some random noise that always sounds the same anyway’, or ‘Techno? Fuck yeah!’. If it’s the latter, may we suggest heading to Grelle Forelle this Saturday, since (as you might’ve already guessed) they’re gonna be playing some random noise that always sounds the same. Just kidding 😛

Turn up and TUN UP with this Reggae and Dancehall party

Vienna TUN UP – Reggae & Dancehall Togetherness

The TUN UP team is gonna make the Camera Club hotter than ever. With two dancefloors to choose from this Saturday, you are sure to find some tunes to suit your groove. Whether you feel more like jammin’ on the Reggae floor, or breaking out with sounds from the Dancehall days, just be sure you be shakin’ dat booty with your boo-thang! (whatever the hell that means!)

These beats will make you nocturnal!

Club Dracula x Biesmans [Watergate]

This party is made for you to dance all night long. If you are hungry for some sick beats and bass vibrations you are in the right place. No matter if you are a beginner or already a professional all night endurance dancer this will have you going wild. Get your friends and let’s go crazy!

Party back in time at this 90s party 

Smells like O Spirit – Super Disco

Every Saturday, you will be able to see the club crew rolling out their 90s disco night again. So get ready to go full Bloodhoundgang, Backstreet Boys and Falco – we are talking, tops off and swimming on the floor kind of style.

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

BEHAVE! X U4 Vienna

Every Saturday, the iconic U4 club will serve you with the finest House, RnB, Hip-Hop, retro and chart music. Not just on one but on two floors! And coming early pays off, as all cocktails will be just 6€ till midnight. So what are you waiting for!?

A 90s and noughties party to let loose at

90ies & 2000s Club

When two become one, you get one extra awesome party in this case. This Saturday will see two of The Loft’s most beloved party series merging to give you a night of not just the best 90ies hits, but also some of the 00s most popular tunes. The perfect soundtrack to dance your ass off to!

Dance the night away to your favourite hits

Gimme! Gimme!

Step back in time and relive the 80s, 90s and 2000s at this epic music event! Featuring all your favourite hits from these eras, come dance the night away and sing along to the tunes that defined whole generations (for better or for worse).

Get your Hip Hop fix at this Saturday night party

MMK – Saturday Night Primetime

Have you recently upped your break dancing game? Learned how to pop and lock last weekend? Ready to show off your new moves in public (where your dance moves definitely belong)? Then hit up the biggest and best-est (we’re being subjective here) Hip Hop party in Vienna at VIEiPEE and get ready to impress!

Fill your Sunday with some underground wrestling action  

WUW Undergroundwrestling FASCHINGSHOW

Some people love fighting while others are appalled at the idea of it. If you belong to the first camp, then watching a bunch of professional wrestlers at this Sunday’s WUW Underground Wrestling at Weberknecht promises to blast you into submission. There will be a couple of fights held at the venue with some live music afterwards. We recommend not getting too drunk and accidentally lurching into the ring. That might end badly for you.

Swing dancing on a Sunday? Hop aboard...

Swing The Boat – mitDJs Waldorf & Statler

Badeschiff is hosting weekly Swing the Boat party. This cool event is exactly what it sounds: a swing party on a boat! Cool huh? If you are a swing dance fan, this party is most certainly for you! And if you are not (yet…), the amazing music is worth the journey on its own!

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.

Ice skating wonderland with a picturesque background, anyone?

Wiener Eistraum 2023

The Wiener Eistraum is back for what is probably one of the most romantic things in a Viennese winter (or to get all of those bruises that you tell people you got in a bar fight). The winter wonderland that pops up in front of the Rathaus every year is up and running again and we’ll be bringing a group of friends, helmets and our phones up and ready to capture every moment. Check out the website for details, such as how much you’ll be forking out for entry and skate rental.
