Corona Update

21. April 2020

Dear lovely people,

these are crazy times we live in and some of you may have asked themself if WAVES VIENNA will happen in September.

Currently the situation in Austria is that no festivals are permitted until 31st of August 2020. We don’t have any information about events or festivals in September yet. And there’s no information about any travel bans or restrictions for fall by now too.

But one thing is for sure: WAVES VIENNA 2020 won’t be the same as in the past years. The Corona crises hopefully may go down in September but won’t be gone. Even if events and festivals are going to happen, there will be restrictions and constraints. Of course we hope that WAVES VIENNA 2020 can be realized as close as possible to the past editions but the health and safety of our visitors and all who work for the festival are the most important thing.

Because of that we work on various alternatives for WAVES VIENNA 2020 to be prepared as soon we get more information from official side how to move on with our plans for the festival and conference.

Our ideas and approach reach from concerts and panels with audience or only a few visitors to a complete online festival. In any case we will do everything in our power to create a great and attractive festival and conference for all you visitors and professionals.

See you on 10th of September!

Your Waves Vienna team
