A festival inside an old indoor pool that goes on for weeks
It started out as an artistic summer academy in 1994, but soon became a successful Pop culture festival in the Western most corner of Austria. Poolbar makes use of the idyllic atmosphere of the town, Feldkirch, and has a mix of both small and big names in its line-up. A special quality of the festival is the fact that they go through various categories and genres of music, so there’s something for everyone in the programme. In addition to music, you’ll experience film screenings, poetry slams, comedy shows (Austrian-style), fashion performances and lots more. Check out the detailed programme of the festival.
To get there you’ll need to… bring many, many snacks for your 6-hour direct train trip from Vienna to Feldkirch.
This festival is special because… it is a cross-border hotspot in an old indoor pool that lasts for a month and has a diverse programme
Recommended if you like: checking out local talent in the music scene, partying in unique locations, exploring Austria, gin and tonic, beer and cigarettes, electronic beats, clapping your hands to the right moments in songs, that moment when a breakdance circle forms and everybody’s too shy to take the floor, when dirty club-like love is in the air
