Text by Editorial Team

Experimental music and art club festival Unsafe+Sounds is about to open up their third edition. PW-Magazine checked the extensive, diverse program to give an insight into upcoming highlights.

The outstanding long-term city festival Unsafe+Sounds is one of the most exciting and ambitious festivals for experimental club culture and art in Vienna and probably even mid-Europe. From September 18th - 29th live shows, exhibitions, performances and parties will go down at seven venues. With this year’s festival theme “rhythm”, as a connecting pulse that is anchored in human bodies and forms the base to create a greater community, more than 70 artists will participate.
