KUFSTEIN unlimited - Kufstein
Austrian sound paired with rock from America -
This is new at KUFSTEIN unlimited 2018!
It will be colorful in 2018. Both the musical line-up and the artistic performances of the Walking Acts have it all. From 8 to 10 June 2018, KUFSTEIN unlimited will once again become a three-day party zone. This time completely without admission.
This festival summer begins with a surprise for fans of KUFSTEIN unlimited: All concerts will be accessible free of charge. The organizers want to ensure that the loyal visitors do not miss a concert highlight. In addition, the success with the appearance of Zoë and Thomas David from 2017 is linked. "Great music spread over the entire city center, that's what visitors to KUFSTEIN unlimited want. And we fulfill this wish all the more as we now present several main acts, nationally and internationally known artists, on the inner-city stages. And it's free, "says Thomas Ebner from Stadtketing Kufstein.
Pulsating beats from New York, soft tones and Goschnrock from Upper Austria
Austrian artists and bands will not lack again this year. In the middle of it is an American singer-songwriter named Ignacio "Iggy" Uriarte, better known as "Lions Head". Not only does he combine vibrant beats with authentic songwriting, he blends light-footed electronic loops with folky guitars and driving rhythms with melodic hooks for his modern pop music. Of course, he also brings his latest single "Golden" to Kufstein.
It's rockier then with the guys of "Krautschädl". Their chart-toppers like "Feiah Fonga" or "Khoids Wossa" have become true evergreens. Currently they are to be heard with "always with peace". The song is sung in the Upper Austrian dialect, the "Upper Austrian Slang" as they call it or also known under the established genre "Goschnrock".
Quieter tones are heard in musician Miriam Hufnagl, also from Upper Austria. At just 12, she wrote her first song in English. In 2016 she released her first album entitled "What If We Never Forget" under her artist name "AVEC". Today she is 21 years young and will enchant us with KUFSTEIN unlimited with her goosebumping voice and her elegant-filigree guitar sound.
DAWA - DA WAr something else!
With Lions Head, Krautschädl and AVEC, the round of top acts is far from complete. There is DAWA. DAWA what? We remember the preliminary vote for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. Just then they missed the participation in the ESC 2015 and were only second behind the Makemakes. Her song "Feel Alive", however, struck for 4 weeks in the Austrian hit parade. At KUFSTEIN unlimited they will bring along their new album "(e) e a c h", pairing their signature sound with the extraordinary voices of John Michael Dawa and Barbara Wiesinger, with cello sounds and cajon beats.
What do aliens, living bronze statues and a giant flamingo do in Kufstein?
Living street art has always been part of KUFSTEIN unlimited. Last year there were still flamenco dancing antelopes and men with goldfish aquariums on their heads, the Walking Acts surprise this year with dangerous-looking aliens, bronze figures, summer stilt-goers, a mini-taxi-van and the gigantic flamingo. This flamingo is indeed pink, but that is the only thing he has in common with his natural role model. He does not stand on one leg, nor walk through the waters of Kufstein. Rather, he rolls through the streets and grabs with his huge beak for everything that stings him in the eye. Especially hat wearers should beware of the curious bird!
The street artists:
- Pink Flamingo
- Potluck - Living Bronze Statues
- Naranja - Summery Stilt Theater
- Delinus 03 - the smallest taxi van ever
Family-friendly festival and Chill Out Zone
Unlimited entertainment for the whole family is available in the Kufsteiner Stadtpark. Even the small festival visitors should get their money's worth on the three days. Again, the popular Bungeehüpfen and classic attractions such as slides and bouncy castles. A giant dartboard becomes a "destination" for all gun-friendly visitors in the truest sense. The chill out zone on the Fischergries, which was introduced last year, has proven its worth, as it will be possible to chill out to the same extent again in 2018.
