WEDNESDAY, 25 April
Live-acts: 11:00 pm, OK Deck
The award-winning Swedish rap star celebrates a double Austrian debut in Linz: on the screen and at the Nightline. In her music Silvana Imam sees the world through the eyes of a migrant daughter and queer feminist. She provokes, antagonizes fascists and misogynists, and she is now becoming the idol of a new generation.
The evening opens with Selbstlaut, a savvy voice in Austrian hip hop – lyrically adept and well-versed in socio-political criticism.
THURSDAY, 26 April
Live-act: 11:00 pm, OK Deck
Live-act: Tents (AT)
DJs: MaDa-me (AT)
In terms of Indie-Post-Punk-Wave, the TENTS are considered one of the hottest items of 2018. Their new album will be released in late April on Numavi Rec. We look forward to the many live pop-diamonds, more rough than polished, but all the more memorably turned into great songs.
MaDa-me is a young DJ duo from Linz, kicking off the evening with Indie from A – Z.
FRIDAY, 27 April
Live-acts: Midnight, OK Deck / UNTEN
OK Deck – Floor 1:
BASSTRACE (AT) mit Damask, Dubnius, Isonoe, Ronya, Nobody, Scooped (live), Ronin Saedi, The Zion Archives & Visuals by Syrup Visuals
In cooperation with UNTEN this night is devoted to club culture. In the OK Deck when a sound system is mentioned, then it is an elaborately made Wall of Sound, called Modulith. It is a jewel, a perfectly formed modular beauty for rendering accentuated, fat bass sounds. While Basstrace celebrate the “trueshool of dubstep”, HVL, a productive representative of the electronic music scene of Georgia, heads into the club space UNTEN, building a bridge together with the two local representatives between electronica and techno.
SATURDAY, 28 April

Live-act: L.A. Salami (GB)

The guitarist and songwriter Lookman Adekunle Salami plays innovative folk music and has a fantastic voice. For the festival, he and his band present a spirited variation of blues-induced rock, magnificently combined with charming lyrics.
Before and after that, DJ Flora Randale (aka Alex Augustin/ FM4) and DJ Kaktus (aka Katie Tränk / Sex Jams/ pink noise Girls Rock Camp) ensure an exuberant party mood with doo-wop to hip hop, from pop to punk!

With her colleagues from V ARE she organizes the festival “Reform Act”; her musical debut will be released this year on the label “duzzdownsan”. Plus: “A warm welcome” to all the dance-hungry souls who want to go on celebrating after of the Posthof gig of the Sleaford Mods.

Live-act: 11:00 pm, OK Deck
Live & DJs: FEMME DMC (AT)

Femme DMSisters: Bella Diablo, Gal Code, Miranda Medusa
Similar to the opening evening, a new, self-confident generation of female musicians invites all festival guests to celebrate the last evening with them as well. FEMME DMC is a label, a regular club in Vienna, a platform for female hip hop and, not least of all, a self-empowerment imperative. Their parties with dancers, rappers, graffiti-writers, and DJs are legendary.
The newspaper Der Standard invites you to enjoy Happy Hour with a bottle of Trumer Hopfenspiel. Just present your cinema ticket from the day between 10 pm and 11 pm from 25 to 29 April at the Nightline Bar in the OK Deck. As long as supplies last.
For admission to the Nightline: priority with accreditation and festival pass! Due to fire safety regulations, the number of persons permitted in the OK Deck and Club UNTEN is limited. As experience has shown that jams are unfortunately inevitable, festival pass and accreditation holders will be admitted first. Thank you for your understanding, if this should result in longer waiting lines for admission.
