Being the center of classical music in Austria and perhaps in the entire European continent, Vienna is often the choice for holding music-related festivals. This year, it will host the 10th Blues Spring festival that will take place for six weeks beginning March 20th.
For this particular festival considered to be the longest of its kind in the world, the Austrian capital will be accommodating some 300 musicians from across the globe particularly from 13 countries.
More than 40 events have been lined up for the Blues Spring Festival. They will be spread out in four main venues such as the Reigen in the 14th district, Theater Akzent in the 4th, Haus der Musik in the 1st and Mozarthaus Vienna in the first.
Among the artists to be featured in this Blues Spring festival are homegrown talent from Austria Hermann Posch, Carvin Jones considered the successor of Jimi Hendrix, Khalif Wailin Walter who is well known for his New Orleans style of vocals and Magda Piskorczyk from Poland who plays various instruments.
Tickets for most of these events are still available but those for the renowned Austrian blues artist Hermann Posch have already been sold out, according to the latest reports. Locals and visitors planning to attend these concerts can purchase their tickets online at viennabluesspring.org.
Another option is to buy the festival pass from Reigen for 180 Euros. The pass can be used in all events at the Reigen venue and pass holders can get 50 percent discount from all other events in the three venues.
Those who are on a budget can also choose the cheaper pass at 90 Euros only which can be used in six concerts of the buyer’s choice.
