Venues in the ninth district are set to steal the show in 2016. In addition to Clash with its living-room charm, and Palme – a dance floor tucked away beneath traditional Viennese coffeehouse Weimar other hosts of the numerous live shows include WUK, a former locomotive factory. The exhibition spaces on the first floor and the WUK project space will be used for the Waves Vienna Music Conference. Part of the festival, the conference features lectures, panel discussions and workshops. This year’s programme is inspired by the theme “Collaborate. Communicate. Connect.”
