So, how’s the mood?

A new programme. New rules. A new Personal Pass. A new website with a new online ticket sale system. New venues, and by the way, a new office. 44 new productions and 85 new pieces. Persistent as always, we aren’t backing down in the face of the year 2020 with its unpredictable mood swings, atmosphere shifts, and vibe killers. The way to the festival this year has been flexible, with a lot of detours (which we don’t want to bore you with). We are taking course towards a festival as large as you would expect from Wien Modern.

In many ways, 2020 is a remarkable year. We wouldn't necessarily have chosen this year to make over our website, which has been the same since 2012. But (just a small anecdote on the side) the company that used to run our website switched business and decided to focus on

FESTIVAL

New music for the city

With around a month of events at countless locations all over the city, Wien Modern is the biggest festival for contemporary arts music in Austria and one of the biggest of its kind worldwide. It was founded in 1988 at the initiative of Claudio Abbado, conductor and the general music director of the city of Vienna at the time. Since then, it takes place every year in November in Vienna.

Exactly what is to be expected from "contemporary arts music" and from a festival with the name "Wien Modern", which is at odds with all the clichés of Vienna?
