Everything you need to do this weekend in Vienna

For love, diversity and equal rights

Celebrate love at Vienna Pride

Thousands of people join this wonderful and colourful event every year to express their solidarity with the LGBTIQ communities in Austria and around the world.

The highlight is of course the famous rainbow parade. And while the celebration atmosphere makes the rainbow parade look like a huge street party, everyone is reminded that this is also a political demonstration demanding a non-discriminating society in Austria and elsewhere. So, strong messages of love, respect and solidarity are encouraged on either banners, t-shirts, your dance moves on the street, or in what you simply shout out loud!

Have a laugh with the British comedian, Jack Holmes

Vienna English Comedy: Jack Holmes

The British musician turned comedian, Jack Holmes, will be trying his best to make you laugh if you show up at this comedy event on Friday. He’s currently touring with his stand-up show, Troubled, and with his mix of self-deprecation and frustration about the world – laughs are guaranteed. So, to put it short, if you feel like you can use a good laugh on a random March Tuesday, be at GRIND this week and the rest will follow.

Party out and celebrate Viennese Pride at this event

Pride Beach Tel Aviv

It’s Pride Month, which means there will be lots of rainbows and lots of parties and events to look forward to! One of them will be happening at the Tel Aviv Beach bar on the Donaukanal where a Pride beach party will be happening. Don’t hold back and come as you are.

Enjoy a show of burlesque and fancy food

Burlesque Extravaganza by Cirque Rouge

If you want to watch a bunch of people undressing in front of you (while doing so in an impressively expressive performance) this event will fulfil all of your desires. Cirque Rouge is hosting a night of Burlesque Extravaganza at Das Vindobona. There won’t only be a performance with an interesting line-up of artists, but also a 3-course-meal on offer.

Metamorkid, Kalinka Kalaschnikow, Michelle Marvelous, and Russel Bruner will be showing us every colour of their rainbow. So get your tickets ASAP, before they sell out!

A tasty celebration of our favorite month!

Pride Brunch

Come taste the rainbow on the 20th of June at Cafe Savoy! Enjoy an extensive brunch, accompanied by some good Dj-Tunes, and start your day pride month accordingly.

Celebrating the end of the weekend by the water

Timeout

We’re sure you know the Vienna City Beach Club location by now – one of the many beloved establishments located waterside on the Danube river. Well, anyway, they have a chill event happening every Sunday to give you a great ending to (hopefully) that even greater weekend you’ve just had. It’s called Timeout and the vibes will be chilled. If it’s hot enough, take a dip followed by a sip (or four) from that cocktail you’ll have in hand.

Go fleamarket hunting on a Sunday!

Sonnscheinbazar – Der Sonntagsflohmarkt

Mondscheinbazar is back for a Sunday sunshine edition, and this time it will actually be a fleamarket during the day! Plus, it’s gonna be at a new location – at the Wiener Werkshallen. Hence, why they’ve called it Sonnscheinbazar. The market will offer up a vast hall filled with tables and racks full of handmade things, second-hand stuff, designer clothes, accessories and jewellery, as well as a bunch of the hippest food trucks Vienna has to offer.

Don’t forget to bring your facemask – it’s mandatory for this event to wear one!

 

Get boozy with paint and cocktails

Tipsy Künstler Creative Workshop for Adults

Ever had the urge to paint whilst being drunk? Well at this event you’ll be ably to savour some booze and paint at the same time. SOON Art Studio is hosting this event, and they guarantee you that no matter how bad you are, you will come out as a real artist. (well after a few cocktails).

There even is a private group option, where you can banter with friends, without pissing off any strangers.

P.S.: The theme right now is street art, so all you street art fanatics: This might just be for you.

Experience The Ginger Forest for a light mood and heavy drinks

Ginger Forest

It may seem like the days of late-night clubbing are long gone, but some of the clubs are continuing to get creative during the time of Corona. Just like last year, the hip hop club, VIE I PEE, has rebranded its outdoor garden, Ginger Forest, and they’ll be holding a bunch of different events in it throughout this summer.

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

KulturTerrasse WERK

Das Werk has opened up a terrace last year to fight their way back from the damage done by the Corona shutdown, and it’s a damn fine terrace, indeed. 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.

 

Vienna’s horror and fantasy film festival is back!

Slash 1/2 – Filmfestival 2021

Throughout June, 4 cinemas in Vienna will play host to the city’s one and only horror and fantasy film festival, screening film after film that are made to twist your mind like a pretzel, or scare the crap out of you. So expect plenty of blood (on the screen, we mean), and plenty of mindf**** films.

Get your yoga fix at this special event

Supyoga auf der alten 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 paddle boarding 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!

Get pandemic flashbacks (in a good way)

Die Weiße Krankheit

Culture is slowly filling up the streets of Vienna again. Scarily, this piece of theater hasn’t had enough of pandemics. Its name: ‘Die Weiße Krankheit’,  a scenic reading from 1937 is all about a government struggling with a strange disease.

Some familiar names, like Christian Kohlhofer or Dana Proetsch, will be taking this piece onto the stage at the Theater Spielraum.

Art gazing at the blossoming nightlife mile

Gürtel Art Connection

The Gürtel will be alive with culture this month, as art will be hung on the walls of 13 bars located on the city’s belt.

This project intends to inspire hope that carefree party nights will be back soon, and to also draw attention to the uncertain situation that artists and the nightlife scene of Vienna faces. The works will be exhibited from 12.6. until at least 3.7.

They’re extending a heartfelt invitation to all of us who value the messages it’s putting out there.

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!

 

 

Check out this new open air cinema in Vienna

Frühlingskino Open Air im Augarten 2021

Vienna’s got a brand new open air cinema this year – the “Frühlingskino”. Not only is the atmosphere unique amongst the trees of the park known as the Augarten (which is also home to the Kino wie noch nie open air cinema throughout summer), yet also the film programme is special.

Austrian film productions from 2020 and 2021 will be screened, with films like, Die Dohnal, Ein bisschen bleiben wir noch, and Quo Vadis, Aida? on the list. Be sure to check out the film programme!

 

A music festival that's as Viennese as it gets

Wean hean – Wienerliedfestival

Listen up lovers of Viennese music – this is something for you! For over a month, you’ll have the chance to catch various live concerts as part of the Wean Hean festival.

It’s gonna take place in venues all over town; from a theater to a chapel and even some Heurige (wine taverns). For more info on when, where, who’s playing, and how much you’re paying, head over to the festival’s website.

Oh, and they also put together some playlists, which are worth checking out, especially if you’re not too familiar with this kind of music and want to find out if this might be actually something for you.

A summer festival with a cool concept

Wir sind Wien Festival der Bezirke 2021

This festival, celebrating Vienna’s culture scene, will be taking place all over town.

Starting on June 1st, there are gonna be events in the first district, on June 2nd in the second, and so on (you get the idea) – it will be working its way outward.

And the events are as diverse as the locations. Various live concerts, photography exhibitions, readings, guided tours are in the program – you name it. We’re sure you’ll find something that interests you while browsing through the extensive festival programme.
