Wiener Wiesn Festival
From September 25th to October 12th, the Wiener Wiesn Festival pitches its tents on the Kaiserwiese in the Prater for the fourth time. Austrian beer, local food, all sorts of music and traditional outfits ensure a great atmosphere.
The fourth Wiener Wiesn Festival will be held in autumn 2014 against the backdrop of Vienna's Giant Ferris Wheel. Lively entertainment in a traditional costume atmosphere is on the program at Austria's biggest folk festival: three festival tents with a varied program of music await the visitors. There are, for example, concerts by the Edlseer, the Alpenrebellen, the Meissnitzer Band, by Petra Frey, Marc Pircher, Die 3, Jazz Gitti and Adi Hirschal. The right culinary supplement to the beer and music is provided by local cuisine ranging from Wiener Schnitzel to Brettljause.
This year's Wiener Wiesn-Fest focus is "Golden Austria": on nine different days, the federal provinces present themselves with their customs, cuisine and music - specially on the new festival stage at the Wiesndorf festival site. The second "Pink Wiener Wiesn-Fest" for the gay-lesbian community will take place in the Wojnar tent.
Brass music bands play at the traditional Frühschoppen at lunchtime. During the day, from 11.30 am to 5.30 pm, admission to the Wiener Wiesn-Fest is free. The Wiesn-Fest Party, with three hours of live music, starts at 6.30 pm. The party tickets cost €39 per person when booking a table and €44 per person for a single ticket. The tickets can be purchased in advance or on the gate. In addition to the three festival tents, the Wiesndorf offers free entertainment for everyone: at the new open-air festival stage, in the ORF Almhütte and in the equally new Winzer-Stadl for wine aficionados.
