Waves Vienna 2017 – inner city music festival

Our favorite inner city music festival – Waves Vienna 2017

It end of September and that means our favorite inner city club and showcase music festival is back in town :). The Waves Vienna, now in the 7th edition. Since last year mainly in Viennas 9th district located and still going strong.

From Thursday 28th of September till Saturday 30th of September more than 100 acts will perform on 13 different stages for the music hungry Viennese crowd. The main venue will be WUK Vienna.

On of the coolest aspect of the Waves Vienna are the new venues they always find every year to be used as a stage for the acts to perform. This year the Canisius Kirche (Church) sounds quite interesting.

This years headliners are Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (US), Forest Swords (UK), Wandl (AT) and Louie Austen (AT) ->check out our interview with Louie here 🙂
