Due to renovation and refurbishment work in venues and buildings that have been used for the Waves Festival in recent years, the festival will be split into two festival spots this year.
Besides to the festival headquarters in the WUK, there will be a total of three stages in the hall, the foyer and the Beisl. In addition, the Clash, located just a few metres from the WUK, will be another stage, as well as the Café Weimar with the Palme dance bar and the Grand Café Alsergrund as conference and showcase venues.
Another new festival spot is on the Gürtel, where the Chelsea, the Fania Live and the Weberknecht will each have a stage, and the Loft another two. In the immediate vicinity there will be another information and ticketing centre as well as a separate artist area.
