Es muss was geben

Es muss was geben

If cities were judged by their underground, Linz would be a metropolis. Since the seventies, the music scene of the steel city has been unique in its spirit of innovation and its non-conformity. The documentary ES MUSS WAS GEBEN portrays the emergence and development of the scene over nearly three decades. From Willi Warma to Texta, from Attwenger to Fuckhead, from punk to hip hop, from New Volksmusik to industrial, Linz proves to be a melting pot for the most diverse musical styles. A portrait of the steel city on the move, where not only the blast furnaces are hot.

OLIVER STANGL, born 1978 in Linz, is a director, journalist and puppeteer. Lives and works in Vienna.

CHRISTIAN TOD, born 1977 in Linz, is a director, economist and musician. Lives and works in Vienna.
