19.45h live, MQ Main Courtyard: EsRAP & Gasmac Gilmore
"EsRAP" have established themselves as a role model of Austrian resistant pop art with a migrant background. The duo's music is characterized by the mixture of Turkish/German rap, modern beats combined with traditional arabesque. With "Gasmac Gilmore" the two siblings Esra and Enes Özmen got a top-class band on board, which since the anthem "Freunde dabei" proves to be a logical musical extension towards "Balkan Sounds with Spaghetti Western Touch".
21:15h live, MQ Main Courtyard: Clara Luzia
"Clara Luzia" creates a powerful sound with her current band, consisting of Wolfgang Möstl (guitar), Peter Paul Aufreiter (bass), Catharina Priemer-Humpel (drums) and Philipp Staufer on the mixing desk, that doesn't shy away from rock clichés like guitar and drum solos, but still stays true to an indie ethos.
19h, music performance: Monsterfrau
Body and movement as a choreographic musical instrument can be experienced in the intervention of "MONSTERFRAU" aka Lena Wicke-Aengenheyster.
19h: VLAN Radio
The cultural association VLAN (Vienna Local Area Network) streams contemporary (non-)club music live from the summer stage as an internet radio station with a focus on empowerment of marginalised groups.
Sun 28. & Mon 29.05.
19h, MQ Main Courtyard: tEChnOkitchen Live
