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.
Right in the heart of Vienna, Donauinsel is a long island that occupies a stretch of the Danube river. Bars, restaurants and recreational facilities make the island a great attraction all year round, though Rock in Vienna has made Donauinsel its own since debuting in 2015.
Vienna International Airport (Wien-Flughafen) is south-east of the city centre.
FROM THE AIRPORT BY BUS: By far the most direct route from the airport is by local bus. The airport stop is called Flughafen Wien Busterminal, and the number 1183 departs from it around once per hour. A 17-minute journey will take you to Wien Donaumarina on Wehlistrasse. From there, the island is a short walk away, over the bridge.
Those under 12 may not attend the festival, and those between 12 and 16 will need to be accompanied by a parent at all times.
