Africa for Austria

Sunshine and a good time – these are terms many of the people of Vienna link with their beloved Donauinsel, the city’s most popular recreation area. Good vibes and a unique atmosphere will be added to this wonderful combination in a few days when the festival returns.

Singers, bands, percussionists and dancers from all over the world will take to the stage between 26. July and 12 August. Many of them come from Africa while others are linked to African culture and lifestyle in manifold ways. The line-up of this year’s Afrika Tage festival includes Mamadou Diabate, Courtney Jones & De Funky Calypso Band from Trinidad & Tobago and German reggae star Jahcoustix.

Aminata & the Astronauts, Jennifer Washington and Dutch blues virtuoso Hans Theessink, who has been based in Vienna for many years, are at the ready too. The event’s varied line-up also features several percussionists and dancers. For a full schedule and more information, visit
