Line up From 2016



SKa (Austria)

Peace Love & Russian Roll

Russkaja Bild


Russkaja is the exact opposite of Easy Listening music, Russkaja - terror of terrors of all Russian folk music societies - stands for fat Austrian Polka beats. The group members are the most illustrious musicians of the Alpine region, who possess a colourful mix of cultural backgrounds. They pour these various cultural influences into a postmodern version of Russian folk and spread their distinctive music all over Europe. It is sweaty and shouts out loud: Dance Dance Dance! It is a clash of trash metal, world jazz, funky stuff and Frank Zappa-esque Rock. All these things signify: Get down to business!

Shantel & The Bucovina Club Orchestra

Balkan Beat (Germany)

 Disko, Disko Partizani!

Shantel Bild

Cosmopolitan, globetrotter, paprika bambaataa, constantly in search of new sounds: Shantel has form when it comes to turning pop cultural clichés and conventionally accepted genre definitions upside down. When he then goes on, with his Bucovina Club Orkestar, to bring the entire stage to life, moulding global sounds into compact, anarchic hymns, eclecticism and escapism no longer seem so very far apart. No worries: The Kiez is Alright. Disko Devil Shantel is on the case.
After pioneering the concept of Balkan clubbing with his now-legendary Bucovina Club parties and albums, after setting very high standards for dancefloor-oriented Gypsy music with his own seminal tracks and with his remixes of tracks by Mahala Rai Banda, Taraf de Haidouks & more...Shantel has now moved on to the next step with the fab Disko Partizani! album, which lays the groundwork for a new brand of pop music.

Pop music with Amore (Austria)

Not long ago you had to explain complicately who you are talking about. – Nowadays you just say one word and everyone knows who it is about: „Amore“!

Wanda Bild

Within a remarkably short period of time Wanda and their debut album not only managed to move up the ranks to Platinum level in Austria, the band also quite casually introduced their own catchword into the dictionary of German pop culture: "Amore".

The five guys around charismatic frontman Marco Michael Wanda call their music “pop music with Amore”, that means they sing mostly about love, sometimes in a cynical way and always in authentic Viennese slang.

Wanda, this Viennese suburb band, is not only the best, it´s maybe also the first Austrian Rock´n´Roll band ever.

Mono & Nikitaman

Dancehall Reggae (Germany)


Mono Nikitaman Bild2


After hitting ‘reset’ and cutting their ties to everything and everyone, Mono & Nikitaman have released their best album yet: ‘Im Rauch der Bengalen’. Catchy melodies mixed with unstoppable energy create a unique, Do-It-Yourself sound.
In 2012, the duo announced a hiatus after more than 800 live shows. Now, without pressure or expectation, they were free to create a new album with a brand new feel and flavour. ‘Im Rauch der Bengalen’ is the first release from their own label, M&N records (established in 2015).
Their lyrics are powerful and full of attitude. Their sold-out live shows are thrilling and genre-defying. Finally a real band with something to say! Mono & Nikitaman.

Ms. Selie

Singer/Songwriter (Austria)


Ms. Selie neu

Piano, guitar, ukulele and her voice – that is all the pop music singer/songwriter needs to bring her songs to life. For more than five years Ms. Selie is writing songs now. She got inspired when she was 15 by a movie called “Amelie”. Ms. Selie couldn’t get rid of the piano music until she started to
play too. Her passion and love for music got bigger with every minute she spent practicing. It didn’t take long until she wrote her own melodies and also her lyrics about experiences she went through in her past and dreams she has for the future. Most of the stories in her songs are about everyday situations which tend to drift away from reality. The line between fantasy and reality seems to blur which creates the feeling of freedom. And this is what Ms. Selie’s songs stand for. There is no “Right or Wrong”. For the Pop musician art is a world full of possibilities, a world of unrestricted creation and especially the freedom of being who you are.

Stefan Thaler & Band

Acoustic Rock (Austria)


Stefan Thaler Bild2


A different type of musician. Some call him singer/songwriter. However, he himself would say he is an instrumentalist. His lyrics are on the one hand thoughtful, on the other hand playful, but always directly taken from real life. In his songs, you can find acoustic guitar with rhythmic elements such as base drum or tambourine. That's the thing what makes him special – his variety! And this year with band.
He had the pleasure to be onstage with bands like Julian le Play, Bilderbuch, Kreisky or Blackout Problems. With his new album "Willkommen & Abschied" which will be released in summer 2014, he will be on tour all over Europe.
The aim is to move on forwards while he is never forgetting the roots.

Simon Wahl

Guitar (Austria)


SimonWahl Bild

They call him „master of melodies“ and his concerts are a pleasure for the soul. Following his own vocation he enables the audience to dive into another world and experience music at another level. Aside of his classical guitar studies at the Anton Bruckner University, Linz/Austria, where he is taught by the internationally recognised Michael Langer, the 24 year old guitarist is consistently moving from one concert to another throughout Europe. In the year 2013 alone he played over 70 shows in 6 countries. Amongst other distinctions he has won the „Acoustic Grand Slam“ in Freiburg/Germany. He is frequently invited to perform at international guitar festivals with famous artists like Adam Rafferty, Pierre Bensusan or Don Ross. Have you ever had the pleasure of listening to a virtuoso player combining a variety of rhythmic expressions simultaneously? Have you ever heard one guitar producing a melodic song accompanied with bass slapping, percussion and fingerpicking? As a one man band Simon Wahl masterly merges rhythms with beautiful melodies to develop his own style, a crossover of Pop, Rock, Hip Hop and Flamenco. He is continuously creating new sounds and soundeffects which make it hard to believe that a single acoustic guitar can produce all of these features. What remains for the audience to do is to listen and enjoy.
