METROPOLE - Vienna in English - - ON MUSIC -

The in­ter­na­tional show­case fes­ti­val and con­fer­ence presents in­die rock and club cul­ture in all its glory

Pre­sent­ing the city’s club­scape along­side the finest up-and-com­ing artists, the Waves Fes­ti­val rides abreast of hid­den mu­si­cal cur­rents, pow­er­ing into its seventh year with a promis­ing lineup and numer­ous talks for in­dus­try in­sid­ers.

Re­main­ing true to course, the fo­cus is firmly on the cen­tral Euro­pean scene with a spe­cial fo­cus on this year’s guest coun­tries, Czechia and Italy. Among the acts con­firmed are lo­cal dar­lings At Pav­il­lon, who started out re­hears­ing in Türken­schanz­park; Amer­i­can in­die rock pow­er­house Clap Your Hands Say Yeah; garage rock sen­sa­tion Coco Hames; Bri­tish trip hop artist and pro­ducer For­est Swords; Aus­tralian neo-disco combo Client Li­ai­son and Italo-bri­tish psy­che­delic shoegaz­ers De­nis The Night & The Panic Party. Rev­el­ers will have the chance to min­gle with in­ter­na­tional jour­nal­ists, man­agers, la­bels and pro­mot­ers, of­fer­ing in­valu­able net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for im­pre­sar­ios and artists alike. Skirt­ing the shores of the event, the Mu­sic Hack­day of­fers dis­course, fo­rums and work­shops on mu­sic and tech­nol­ogy, where mu­si­cians, de­vel­op­ers and hob­by­ists can put their ideas into prac­tice: By uti­liz­ing a stock­pile of state-of-the-art soft­ware and equip­ment, any­one as­pir­ing to be­come a mu­sic app de­vel­oper, de­sign and build a new in­stru­ment or just go off course and ex­per­i­ment is free to do so.

Sev­eral other satel­lite are­nas will join the fes­tiv­i­ties, which will be com­ple­mented by a street food and craft beer fes­ti­val on the fi­nal day. Be the first to catch the new wave!
