Waves Vienna 2012 – A Brief Overview

Waves Vienna is the city’s first club- and showcase festival. From the 4th – 7th of October, Vienna’s most significant clubs, unique off-locations, and the public space will merge into the site of the Waves Vienna Festival.

Waves Vienna’s motto is „East meets West“; numerous international alternative, electronic, rock, and club acts will be performing around Vienna’s 2nd district. Additionally, local artists and sophisticated musicians from Eastern Europe form an essential part of the festival’s programme.

This year, Waves Vienna will welcome two countries as special guests. True to the motto “East Meets West”, there will be a focus on acts from Poland and France in the live programme. The Waves Vienna Music Conference will furthermore devote a part of its programme to the respective music markets and scenes of these countries.

The Waves Vienna Music Conference constitutes a part of the festival and offers the possibility to attend lectures and panels and participate in workshops. The subject-specific programme will deal with the topic „East meets West“, which will serve as the basis and inspiration for many years of pan-European cooperation.
