On May 9, 2018, the Red Bull Music Festival celebrates its premiere in the Prater: thirty Austrian acts from a wide range of musical genres perform on three stages set up on Riesenradplatz. The Club cabins of the Giant Ferris Wheel turn to the sounds of DJs. Tickets for additional exclusive cabin concerts are raffled off. – A holiday for music fans.
The new one-day festival offers an incomparable cross-section through the Austrian music landscape with its talents and icons – from the Vienna Boys Choir to Kruder & Dorfmeister and from Nazar, Seiler und Speer to Mavi Phoenix. Hence the slogan: Celebrating Sounds of Austria.
Awaiting visitors is a colorful mix of genres around the famous symbol of Vienna - the Giant Ferris Wheel in the Prater: a main stage on Riesenradplatz, a hiphop stage in the building of wagon 31 and an electronic stage in the Grand Autodrome.
Stage line-up: Kruder & Dorfmeister – Money Boy – Nazar – Ogris Debris – Patrick Pulsinger – T-Ser – Vienna Boys' Choir – Granada – and many more besides.
Take off to music and float above Vienna to cool sounds: 15 cabins of Vienna’s Giant Ferris Wheel become Club cabins with DJ sets. Greats such as Wolfram, Waxolutionists, Oberst & Buchner (Heimlich) and Cid Rim set the mood in the air. Visitors can join in on a hop-on-hop-off basis and ride and party along for one full revolution.
Club cabin line-up: Cid Rim, The Clonious – Kristian Davidek – Oberst & Buchner (Heimlich) – Waxolutionists (DJ-Set) – Wolfram, Stickle – LHF Squad – and many more besides.
Before the DJ sets start in the Club cabins, Austrian music greats give concerts in the Giant Ferris Wheel cabins. This needs a bit of luck, because the tickets for these special acts are drawn in contests (some require registration when purchasing a festival ticket, others can be participated in for free).
Cabin concerts line-up: Camo & Krooked – Der Nino aus Wien – Klaus Eberhartinger (EAV) – Kruder & Dorfmeister – Lea Santee, Filous – Love Hotel Band – Mavi Phoenix – Mynth – Seiler & Speer – Skero – The Crispies – and many more besides.
