Join the Austrian delegates for a Networking Reception hosted by Austrian Music Export & Waves Vienna. In 2017/18, Austrian Music Export puts a biennial focus on the ex-Yugoslavian countries. Use the opportunity to get in touch, enjoy drinks and snacks in a relaxed atmosphere if you’re interested in joint projects and activities. Of course you’re also very welcome if you want to meet with the Austrians regarding any other matters.
Austrian Music Export is a joint initiative of the Austrian Music Information Center mica – music austria and the Austrian Music Fund. Austrian Music Export’s aim is to be a service and resource centre for exporters of contemporary Austrian music in all genres and aspects (recordings, live, sync, etc.). This includes providing access to information on Austrian artists and companies, building a substantial network of industry professionals and media, providing travel support, and representing Austrian music at international trade shows, conferences and festivals. Austrian Music Export promotes international showcases of local artists and develops measures to strengthen international exploitation of the Austrian repertoire by acting as a catalyst for export-oriented Austrian labels, agencies and artists.
Waves Vienna is the city’s first club and showcase festival. In autumn, Vienna’s most significant clubs, unique one-off locations and the public space will merge into Waves Vienna Festival. The festival’s motto is “East meets West”; numerous international alternative, electronic, rock, and club acts will be performing around Vienna’s 9th district. Additionally, local artists and sophisticated musicians from Eastern Europe form an essential part of the festival’s programme. The next edition of Waves Vienna will take place from 28th to 30th September 2017.
