AUSTRIANS ON THE ROAD: INTERNATIONAL FESTIVALS


Austrian musicians have long been strong players on the international festival scene. From Jazz, new music and contemporary to electronic, dance and rock, it’s not too surprising to find some of Austria’s top musicians on the road. Whether a comfortable little get together or world-famous mega-festivals, the chances are good you will find and Austrian act there.

While the hype around Austrian acts in the German speaking countries has been anything but a well kept secret, quite a few have found their way across the continent and even further abroad. Parov Stelar, Bernhard Eder, Russkaja and Hans Theesink have already established a name for themselves on the international festival circuit, and quite a few other bands are just beginning the process.

Like the White Miles. Austria’s youngest rock export has already had a busy year of touring behind them, supporting Courtney Love and Eagles of Death Metal on their European shows. Now that the festival season has begun their bus is getting a lot of miles put on it as they head off to festival and club dates across the continent. Their excitement at playing Nova Rock was tangible, but it was only the beginning of their busy summer. A summer which will include several festivals in Europe, including a gig on August 26th at the Reading Festival.

A complete list of all Austrian bands playing at every international festival is beyond the scope of a single webpage. There are just too many in too many different countries. But we do have a small overview of the acts you can see, broken down by country and date.
