Austria and Vienna in particular has always been a meeting-place for various cultures. Today modern sounds blend with classical music, regional influences with music from all over the world.
The success of Conchita Wurst has not only brought the world’s greatest music event to Vienna (the 60th Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the Vienna Stadthalle from 18th – 23rd May 2015), but has also raised interest in a young music scene full of surprises. Austrian music is more diverse than ever before, a melting pot of influences.
From Vorarlberg to the Burgenland unique artists are rising to international fame. Electronic beats, drum’n’bass, funky pop, Indie rock, vocal-groove, Austrian popmusic, rock and jazz – all of the musical styles can be found in Austria and will be interpreted in a special modern way.
