Austria’s stunning SpringFestival, Graz, announces dates

by Daniel Haim

In 2010 Springfestival celebrated its momentous 10th anniversary, featuring an array of richly diverse live and DJ talent from across the globe including Zoot Woman, Zombie Nation and Erol Alkan, for what was the festival’s best year to date. Thousands of people from all over Europe flocked to Austria to enjoy the splendour of an enchanting city whilst experiencing some of the world’s leading performers and musicians performing day and night.

2011 witnesses the 11th instalment of one of Europe’s most intriguing festival propositions returning across 1st-5th June, set in the beautiful and enchanting UNESCO World Heritage city of Graz. Alongside hosting its finest underground clubs, Springfestival boasts some truly breathtaking locations; a cave, nay a dome carved in the middle of a mountain, a spectacular fortress, a man-made steel and glass river island, and the “Friendly Alien” Museum of Modern Art are spectacular backdrops making for a unique audio-visual experience, combining four days and nights of amazing music, workshops and stimulation.  The locations are scattered around the city centre, all within walking distance or catered for by a shuttle bus.

The first wave of the lineup for 2011will be announced toward the end of January.
