Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
What mostly starts off as a long journey, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have achieved in less than 8 years – From Underdogs to the superstars. In 2006, the US hip hop duo met on MySpace, two years later their musical collaboration began and in 2009 their first EP appeared. From then on, the band has been fast-growing: Their 2012 album THE HEIST has been awarded with 4 Grammys, and the single releases have blocked the top ranks of the charts worldwide for weeks. THE UNRULY MESS I’VE MADE followed in 2016, 10 years after the beginning of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and lived up to success of THE HEIST.
House Of Pain – 25th anniversary of JUMP AROUND
„Whitey Ford sings the blues“ was the name of Erik Schrody`s successful album before he became EVERLAST. Together with Danny Boy and DJ Lethal, Everlast formed the Hip Hop Group HOUSE OF PAIN, who became an overnight sensation thanks to „Jump Around“.“With all the political discourse in the world, it’s good to simplify things for a moment and just Jump Around.“ A quarter of a century later this statement is as relevant as ever and let`s celebrate a piece of music history together with House Of Pain while Jumping Around at Rock In Vienna.
Starting at the age of 13 years Appletree, a Viennese Rapper has his first freestyle battles and started off with small performances as a support of Busta Rhymes, Dame and others. In Hamburg he worked on his first EP at Samy Deluxe’s studio KunstWerkStadt.The result is the EP “Zwischen Stiernacken und Tiermasken” with beats by DJ Vito, Levon Supreme, Matteo Capreoli and The Titans – and a feature by Samy Deluxe. In spring, Appletree is once again going on tour and you have the chance to see him perform at the Rock In Vienna 2017.

Kings Of Leon
In October 2016 Kings Of Leon released their seventh studio album “Walls” and scored their first No.1 on Billboard album charts and UK Charts as well as Austria`s Top40. Now they`re getting ready to start touring again and will also headline this year`s Rock In Vienna Festival. We are looking forward to a gigantic live show.
Pop can be profound too and so you should precisely lend your ear to Silbermond. In addition to many well-known and million-times sold melodies, their lyrics can also be very revealing and touching. Their latest work « Mit leichtem Gepäck » was recorded at the famous Blackbird Studio B in Nashville (as well as Kings of Leon’s « Sex on Fire »). Singer Steffi also lends her voice to the cool porcupine « Ash » in the new movie “Sing”. And because everything is going just as well, a show at the RIV also fits.
In 2006, three years after their foundation, their debut album “Muss laut Sein’ was released and the single “Ich muss gar nix”’ became a veritable club hit in Germany and Austria. Their now sold-out shows at trendy clubs are proof enough that this concept and their sound between electro, pop and punk and lyrics between love, sex, and personal freedom delight a close-knit fan base.
After 22 years of band history, the Donots have played more than 1000 concerts and their development and experience is remarkable. Every single concert is packed with pure rock’n’roll, the crowds are dancing, singing along, and celebrating the band all night long. Such an act should definitely not be missed on the Danube Island.
Sunday, 4. June
Since « Bon Voyage » Deichkind are a widely known band that mutated from a regular Hip Hop Band to an absolute party-monster for what they are known today. Their concerts are characterized by artistic chaos and incomparably good mood – simply a lot of riot and racket! A massive spectacle that must be seen to be believed.
For more than 20 years, In Extremo have been playing on various stages, rock and metal festivals as well as medieval pilgrimage sites throughout Europe. Now they are back with their twelfth studio album „Quid Pro Quo“ they scored platin/gold status and No. 1 chart positions. Unfortunatley due to storm warning their concert had to be interrupted at Rock In Vienna in 2016 and this is why we are even more pleased to welcome In Extremo back at the danube Island.
The album « Spackos Forever » by Schmutzki, overflows with energy and joy of playing. At the same time, the album offers a wide range of multi-faceted songs that dare to show feelings or laugh about oneself. Whether as a brute punk rock gang (‘Hey Haters’), groovy Indie guys (‘Spackos Forever ‘), dorky chaotic disco dancers (‘Jesus Schmutzki’), charmingly cynical plebs (‘Sauflied’) or melancholic druggies (‘So durch”) – we are the Schmutzki-mob and look forward to a great live show!

Die Toten Hosen
Already confirmed to play at the festival on the Danube Island on the 5th of June () are “Die Toten Hosen”, tickets are already available.
The five guys from Düsseldorf and the city of Vienna have a long and special friendship, so it is not surprising that after many concerts at the Viennese Burgtheater they are going to do themselves the honour of playing on the island for their 35th band anniversary.
They are by far the best live band of the hemisphere, often mentioned together with the biggest German rock bands and they convey a live spirit that hits the roof. With songs such as « DNA », « Make a Wish » and « Gentleman of the Year », their latest and eponymous album « Beatsteaks » lives up to their previous successes. »I do not care as long as you sing »: After a concert of the Beatsteaks no one wants to go home! No, you want to stay, dance and celebrate. We look forward to the full load of punk rock and a gigantic live show at Rock In Vienna 2017.
Marteria In the last three years, Marteria has not only won prizes for Best Live Act and Best Artist, but also received gold with his album « Zum Glück in die Zukunft “ , and « Lila Wolken » even received platinum. Marteria is one of the most successful artists in the German-speaking countries. Look forward to an outstanding live performance at the Rock In Vienna 2017 together with Materia and many more.
Rock, Punk, Bluesrock, Stoner Rock, Post Hardcore, driving guitar reefs, bombastic beats and Neil Fallon`s unique voice are the main characteristics of Clutch. Put a Hammond organ and harmonica on top and you have the ultimative Clutch experience.
The Living End
The smart Australian rockabilly-pop-punkers have once again demonstrated their awesomeness and with their album « Shift » in 2016. The band not only enjoyed success in Europe, but also in the USA and Japan – they have supported bands such as AC/DC or the Rolling Stones, thus gaining an ever-growing fan base.
