Introduction:

The Frequency Festival aka the Vienna City Festival is held every year to celebrate musice.  From its inception to 2008, it was staged close to Salzburg – usually in August.  In 2009, the venue was shifted to St. Poelten.

History:

This event was founded in 2001.  It was promoted and hosted by one of Austria’s largest radio stations FM4.  It is usually associated with alternative music such as rock, electronica and hip hop.  Most of the acts are from Germany and Austria in the alternative, guitar pop and indie muscie scene – some are also well known international groups.

The very first year was a small event, held over two days and featured 6 artists.  The venue was was the Arena Wien – an open air stage.  The music was well received by the audience and was financially successful.
