The Basics

2-5. Juni 2017
Vienna, Austria

Rock in Vienna is Austria's newest and biggest heavy rock music festival. With a hall of fame that already includes KISS, Iron Maiden and Iggy Pop, it's no wonder it now attracts rock fans from across the continent. 

Twin to Germany's Rock im Revier and Rockavaria festivals, the Austrian sibling will once again be plugging in on the banks of the Danube, reverberating to the soundwaves of some of Europe's best rockers as well as upcoming stars.

In 2017 the festival will broaden it horizons, not simply by adding an extra day to proceedings, but also by extending its lineup beyond heavy metal into the worlds of alternative rock, pop, hip-hop and more. This is reflected in the headliners, which include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Kings of Leon.
