(Vienna/Austria) From 22nd to 24th June 2018 everything will again focus on music, culture, information, party and action for three days, when the Danube Island Festival, which is organised annually by the SPÖ Vienna, celebrates its 35th anniversary on its eleven stages and 18 theme islands. Portugal.The Man, Antilopen Gang, Voodoo Jürgens & Haberer, Lisa Stansfield, Gert Steinbäcker, Wanda, Nico Santos, Zonderling, Fedde le Grand, Münchener Freiheit or Petra Frey are waiting for visitors on the 4.5-kilometre-long festival grounds for 600 hours of exciting concert experiences.
On Thursday morning, SPÖ Vienna state party secretary Barbara Novak and DIF project manager Thomas Waldner presented the varied programme of the festival summer highlight for sports fans, culture enthusiasts and the whole family in the presence of the artists Gabriela Horn (PAENDA), Ulrike Koller (Die Mayerin), Clemens Reinsperger (Die Wilden Kaiser), Gary Lux, Andreas Steppan and Elisabeth Engstler at the Vienna summer stage.
“A festival for all, three days, with free admission – that is our claim as SPÖ Vienna to the Danube Island Festival 2018, in accordance with the values of the city and the values of the SPÖ, which will also be clearly demonstrated at this year’s Danube Island Festival: Freedom, equality, justice and solidarity. Therefore, there will again be the Social Business Full Access to provide an inclusive festival experience for physically handicapped people. We attach great importance to the fact that the festival is accessible to all people. Women’s safety will be a major focus this year. Because we are aware that you have to pay particular attention to this at major events. Therefore we will cooperate even more intensively with the Viennese police. Thanks to the helpers: Europe’s largest open-air festival is only possible because of the committed organisers, the countless volunteers and cooperation partners. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their tireless commitment and passionate dedication,” explains Novak.
“We are proud to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Danube Island Festival with a colourful bouquet of red-white-red music for every taste, which rounds off the international acts in an optimal and varied way. The unique position of the Danube Island Festival as Europe’s largest festival with free admission makes it once again this year a coveted stage for the impressive staging of brands. Despite a brilliant entertainment and cultural offer with free admission, the Danube Island Festival is a value-added and economic factor for Vienna that underlines the modern and cosmopolitan image of our ‘Smart City’,” adds Waldner.
The 15 metre high “OBI Flower Tower” directly in front of the festival stage offers its guests the best view of the concert events and the Vienna skyline with lounge and OBI self-built furniture.
