Blue Bird Festival Vienna
One of our Terrific Tips

The Viennese singer and songwriter scene comes together at the end of November every year with international guests to perform at a small, but highly acclaimed event: the Vienna Songwriting Association’s Blue Bird Festival.

The three-day programme at the Blue Bird Festival features contemporary forms of song writing such as anti-folk, weird-folk and Americana, and exclusive concerts take place in various venues around the city of Vienna

The roots of the festival lie in the local singer and songwriter scene, which has exploded in the last few years and produced musical stars such as Marilies Jagsch, Tini Trampler, Ernst Molden and Clara Luzia. The festival programme is hugely varied, but always of high quality. It is an opportunity to sample everything from neo-folk to experimental electronic music.
