Everything you need to do this week in Vienna

Travel East without even leaving the city

SALAM ORIENT 2022 – Music & Art Festival

This festival is about faraway cultures and oriental music. Experience the sounds from Southern Spain, across to Maghreb, East Africa and the Middle East.. .and you won’t even have to leave Vienna. It will all come together under the same roof in the form of a high brow music festival, hosted by the music venues Sargfabrik, Flex, WUK and more.

Bands from countries such as Marocco, Tunisia and Algeria will be on stage, along with local bands who dedicate their tunes to oriental beats. Find all the information about tickets, locations and shows on their festival page.

A film event for everyone who loves the sea

Int. OCEAN FILM TOUR Vol. 8

The International Ocean Film Tour is back for the 8th time already. With their new programme they’re taking you to the sea (only filmically, so don’t expect an actual beach holiday here) with visually stimulating footage and exciting stories to tell.

You can catch the screening at Gartenbaukino on Monday and Thursday evening.

Watch this rising star live

Zoe Wees – European Tour 2022

Zoe Wees has been hot and popping for the past two years. Not only did she make it into Forbes’ famous ’30 under 30′ list, she’s also one of the faces of Spotify’s global ‘Equal’ campaign. With her dreamy, raspy voice and heartfelt lyrics she’ll be sure to captivate you.

Check out one of her songs below:

 

An event to network with fellow queers

Queer Talks

This talk at the Volkskundemuseum presents artistic as well as scientific positions on matters with a queer context. Local and international speakers will come together in front of a live audience for highly educational talks. And of course there will also be enough time for questions and discussions with the audience.

Admire local artists at The Loft while sipping on a beer

Loftival: Atzur, Bagage

The Loft is hosting a music event series every Thursday and they’re calling it Loftival. The whole idea is to celebrate local artists!

Every week, a different band, or solo musician (or non–musical artist) will hit the stage to sweeten your Thursday!

Performing this time will be Atzur and Bagage

Vibe to the amazing tunes of this band

FM4 Indiekiste mit City of the Sun

City of Sun blend Alternative, Gypsy Jazz, Flamenco and Rock into their tunes, influenced the likes of Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin. This Thursday they will grace the stage at Grelle Forelle. So grab your friends and soak up their unique vibes!

Drink, dance, network and flirt at this after work party

Büroschluss ★ O Klub

The Büroschluss party is back again this month! Grab your colleagues and head to the O club for some after-work drinks. You can even reserve a table to have dinner there, or if you’re just feeling a bit peckish after a long day at the office, you can enjoy their special ‘Büroschluss snacks’.

There’s potential for networking, dancing, eating, and flirting there. On four different areas, you can enjoy all kinds of music, from current hits to catchy 80s tunes.

Bridge the generation gap at this party

The Generations Club – Opening 22

This is a party for everyone: old and young, parents and their offspring, boomer and millenial – whatever age group you belong to, you are welcome here!

Not only will the attendees cover all the generations from boomer to Z, the musical selection will be just as diverse. So don’t be surprised to see teens swinging their hips to some classic disco hits or grandparents turning it up to some cloud rap. Everything’s possible and we think it’s a fantastic concept!

Hopefully Mama won't find out about this

DON’T TELL MAMA – GRAND RE-OPENING BABY!

The monthly super fun party is back! The “Don’t tell Mama ” party will have DJ Flowmotion serve up some beats. So round up your friends and turn up at the U4 for this bonkers party! Also, don’t tell your mum.

It's (almost) summertime, baby!

Pommes, Punk & Rock´n Roll – Wir starten in die Sommersaison

Summertime starts early this year and not just because of climate change (jokes like this always make us unsure whether we should be laughing or crying). The crowd at the Badeschiff is ringing in the warmer season with a weekend-long mini festival that you shouldn’t miss out on. You can do all the fun things you usually enjoy when the sun’s out, the only difference being that you’re on a boat. And everyone knows that life is better on a boat.

Head over to the event page to check out the full programme.

Keep your phone in your pocket and hit the dance floor

OZ w/ KÖLSCH

OZ stands for a place where you just live in the moment instead of constantly staring at your phone. And let’s be honest, why would you when you can instead dance to the tunes of the top-tier DJs performing right in front of you. On the decks this time is going to be Kölsch.

Celebrate the end of a long workday at this after work party

Sofiensäle Afterwork – the party edition

This Friday, get your after work drink on at the legendary location of the Sofiensäle. In a great atmosphere, there will be delicious long drinks being served up to the sounds of a live DJ. This event is perfect to congratulate yourself and friends on surviving yet another day at work. You can even go with your co-workers (or your boss) in case you always wanted to see how much of a party animal they really are.

Have a dance workout ath 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.

Havana, ooh na-na

La Caña @ The Loft

Hot Latino rhythms and free tequila, that can only mean one thing – La Caña, Vienna’s hottest Latino-Spanish party, is back! If that sounds like your kind of vibe, head over to the Loft this Friday.

Good to know… if you get there before 11pm, the entry fee is only 7€!

Experience grand music in a living room atmosphere

Leelah Sky // 7*Stern Wohnzimmerkonzert

A cozy setting and captivating songs are all that’s needed to turn a regular Friday evening into a fantastic one. When singer-songwriter Leelah Sky fills Café 7stern with her emotionally charged Pop ballads, goosebumps are guaranteed. To see what we mean, just check out the video below:
