The Basics

3-5. Juni 2016
Vienna, Austria

Rock in Vienna is Austria's newest rock and metal festival. A unique urban island location provides an incredible stage for some of the world's very biggest bands.

Last year's inaugural edition saw Rock in Vienna join a European elite of rock festivals, enlisting Muse, KISS and Metallica as their very first headliners.

Building on 2015's success, Rock in Vienna will bring another monster lineup to the heart of one of the continent's most beautiful cities.
