Waves 2014 – New Acts and Venues!

Waves Vienna & Waves Bratislava
Various Locations
October 1 – 5, 2014

This year, the Waves Music Festival & Conference takes place for the forth time from the 1st – 5th of October and again presents itself with quite a few innovations. Still staying true to the festival’s motto “East Meets West“, the festival continues to strengthen the network between Eastern and Western Europe and manifests this in its choice of location: After the successful debut of Waves Bratislava in 2013, the Waves festival will again also be held in Bratislava and has now for the first time expanded its conference program to take place in both Vienna and Bratislava.
