Description

A festival of flights of fancy! The donaufestival Krems is regarded as one of the most important artistic festivals in Austria, with its stylish mix of performance and acoustic art, experimentation, pop and subculture. Easter is barely past when the donaufestival unpacks its surprises each year. The festival organizers give special emphasis to unknown artists and works, as well as to a large number of exclusive productions created especially for the festival. But the event programme also always features plenty of internationally known stars: Rufus Wainwright presented one of his albums for the first time in Krems, the Melvins gave a legendary performance at the festival, and in 2010 the Peaches introduced their singular brand of techno punk to Austrian audiences. The Peaches also acted as a kind of curator in residence for that festival, participating in the programming and bringing several of their artist friends to Krems.
