The capital city of Austria does not run out of festivals every year. They cover musical concerts, operas and balls.
Another festival that not many may have heard of is the Accordeon Festival. This is a monthlong celebration of accordion music in all its forms with more than 50 concerts to be held.
Organized by Freidl Preisl, this event has been going on for almost two decades now. Thanks to this festival, the accordion has become more widely known and much appreciated unlike before when it was simply considered a noisy and low-level musical instrument.
