Every year for the past decade a great deal of international musicians performed around Vienna’s 9th district as part of the Waves festival. Staying true to its motto "East meets West" the festival welcomes two countries and this year it's Ukraine and the United Kingdom who are on the spotlight, with a focus on acts from these countries in the live programme and the Waves Vienna Music Conference.
The 10th edition of the festival was supposed to be special and that will indeed be the case as Waves Vienna is going digital this year. Instead of an open-air event scattered around the 9th district, a multi-stream event will be hosted with over 70 acts broadcasting their music from 10th to 12th of September. Pre-produced concerts at special places in Vienna will be streamed as well and a varied conference programme will be held with free admission.
