On Saturday 1.OCT.2016 we take you on a tour to three very special places around Vienna. That means lots of music, food, wine, beer and new friends. Join us and reserve your seat – the tour is for free and available for all Pro Pass and Conference Pass holder:
Start of the tour
Meeting Point is at 10:45 AM right in the front of the main entrance to the Festival & Conference Centre WUK. If you made a reservation for the tour, be sure to be there at 10:30 AM as otherwise we’ll give your place to other people as space at the bus is limited to 82 people. If you don’t have a reservation just show up and if there’re any places left or someone with a reservation doesn’t show up we’re happy to have you with us.
First Stop: Music, Food & Wine @ETEP Reception hosted by Austrian Music Export
We’re going up to the hills in the west of Vienna to a very special place called Cobenzl. At a typical Viennese wine restaurant – they’re called ‘Heuriger’ – we’ll serve you typical Austrian food and of course white and red wines from the Cobenzl winery. The “European Talent Exchange Programme” (short ETEP) also presents one of the hottest upcoming acts at Cobenzl from Austria: Inner Tounge, who played at Waves Vienna last year already and are confirmed for next year’s edition of Eurosonic Noorderslag.
Next Stop: Germany!
No, we’re not going that far! But Germany is one of our guest countries and we’re happy to collaborate with Initiative Musik from Germany for the programme of the second stop of our tour. Our bus takes us down from the hills over Vienna back to the city right into one of the most colourful districts, called Ottakring. There we’ll drive straight to the absolutely beautiful Yppenplatz.
At Ludwig & Adele am Markt, a super cool Viennese pub, Blockflöte des Todes will play while we lean back and have one or maybe two drinks.
Our tour will lead us the birthplace of the Waves Vienna Festival Beer, the Ottakringer Brewery. At this small private owned and local brewery the brewmaster of Foxy Lady, the Waves Festival Beer, will show us around and promised to serve us some really delicous beer specialities from Austria and neighbouring countries!
Around 17:00 we will return to the Festival & Conference Centre where we started the tour and if you’re in the mood you directly can walk in WUK and browse through some really cool Austrian music at the Waves Label Market.
