In 2023, Waves Festival is moving a few streets away again and it's with a heavy heart that we leave the concert and conference halls of the WUK behind.
In 2022, we already played some of the well-known clubs on the 'Gürtel', which went down very well not only with the audience and the conference participants, but also with the acts.
That’s why we are strengthening our live presence on the 'Gürtel' even further with a few new venues and we will be playing one of the oldest and at the same time most exciting concert halls, the Metropol, right next door in the 17th district.
For the conference, we were able to win a very special location: Das West, known as an interim use project of the old University of Economics in Vienna’s 9th district. This year we will be here with panels, workshops, networking events, receptions, and also the presentation of the XA – Export Awards. The XA – Export Award will also have a few new features. The six nominated artists will all perform on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday at 5:30 pm, there will be an award ceremony in Das West. More about this at a later date.
