Summer equals concerts – Free open air festivals

Why do we Viennese love summer? Because all over the city there are cultural stages popping up. Our city government supports A LOT of it, so we can enjoy tons of activities for free. Lucky us, aaaand lucky you!

Where you can have fun in the upcoming months:

You’ve missed lovely Popfest, in front of Karlskirche (which you can see in the background on above picture), but mark it for your next visit! YES, Vienna is always worth coming back 🙂 Check with us what’s going on!

Until mid of August you can enjoy free concerts and more cool stuff like the tiniest public pool in the city (promise!), in a somewhat intimate atmosphere at WUK, the concerts are called “Platzkonzert

On August 26 the music and culture festival Gürtelnightwalk invites you to dance and enjoy indie/rock/pop/electro performances on four open air stages and more.

If that’s all too BIG for you, you might like the rather small Summerstage outdoor events, where besides concerts also readings, wine happenings or bicycle checks take place [until early September]. Another cozy place is the Bunkerei at Augarten park, they come up with Sunday “silent music” events.

IF you’re looking for a real local experience however – I hereby guarantee you, you’re going to be the only foreigner there 😀 – and dare diving into a crowd maybe a bit older: check Bühne Donaupark out!

Hoping there’s at least one festival meeting your musical needs. Otherwise search for concerts here, or here (Jugendinfo always is €2-3 cheaper than elsewhere)!
