Big-ass festival on the Donaukanal
When: FRI–SUN, May 24 – May 26, 12am–10pm (Find the program highlights, here)
Where: various locations around the Donaukanal
The Donaukanaltreiben will be back at the end of May and, even though it’s one day shorter this year, it’s bringing with it all of the live music performances, markets, food trucks it always delivers. It seems to grow every year, and so does its popularity. You often hear people on the Donaukanaltreiben weekend asking – ‘have you been down to the canal? you can’t move! there’s so many people!’ This is one of the greatest free music festivals this city serves up. Pro tip: Bring your own drinks as the queues at most of the venues along the canal are enough to make you jump into the water! Check out their website, so you can start planning what acts you’ll camp by the stage for.
Recommended if you like: drinking in the sun, free concerts, following the smell of weed, dangling your legs over the edge of the canal, being part of the crowd, festivals that keep you out for three days in a row, all kinds of music genres in one place, the idea of jumping into the Donaukanal because you’re a bit too drunk to realise how disgusting the water actually is
