21. - 24.07.

NEW ORLEANS FESTIVAL

When the hips of the Tyroleans move to the beat, when Tyrolean fingers snip rhythmically, when the pigeons on Landhausplatz hum evergreens, then, yes then, it's festival time! After two lean summers, over which great local bands helped us with small concerts, we are planning big again and hope very much that the New Orleans Festival can be resurrected in its old glory!

Dinner is served: A new main act from New Orleans, the fantastic keyboardist and singer KEVIN GULLAGE with his band KEVIN & THE BLUES GROOVERS, is about to cross the pond! Local band greats such as SALTBRENNT, MORELAND or THE VINTAGE RETARDS will also be on the big stage, and as a national highlight, Austria's hottest funk band: the HOT PANTS ROAD CLUB from Linz.
