From Thursday, May 31th to Sunday, June 03rd 2018, the “Wiener Donaukanaltreiben” (Danube Canal Festival) takes place for the 12th time, a three-day festival for music, art and culture on the Vienna Danube Canal. The inner-city water vein is a hotspot of the urban cultural and gastronomic scene as well as recreational area.
At free admission, the approximately 30,000 visitors per year are offered between Spittelau and Franzensbrücke at around 15 locations – including the Summer Stage, the Herrmann beach bar, the Adriatic Sea and the Badeschiff – a colourful and varied program.
Live performances from the Austrian hip-hop pioneers Schönheisfehler, the Indie rock band Leoniden from Germany, Sofa Surfers, Symphonix DJ-Set and many other bands demonstrate the variety of the Danube canal festivals on the main stage near the Salztorbrücke. Late in the evening indoor after-show parties take place.
Between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm, the “1st Vienna Boat Taxi” brings visitors free of charge on the Danube canal to the various locations.
