Discover the future music stars now! 2 days, 120 concerts and 12 clubs for 1 admission fee are waiting just for you. Waves Bratislava is an international music club and showcase festival. Together with its sister event Waves Vienna form the Twin City festival held simultaneously in the two closest capitals of Europe. Each of them runs a music festival and they are also connected by the common professional conference under the Waves Central Europe’s auspices.

For the third time, Bratislava will be the host of showcase festival and conference

Waves Bratislava, held from 1st to 4th October 2015. The event takes place as an equal part of Waves Central Europe Festival 2015, which spreads itself over two neighbouring capitals, Vienna and Bratislava.

New attractive venues, pop-up concerts, as well as the opening party was added to the program for 2015. Up and coming artists on the verge of their potential international careers will take over twelve venues, all conveniently located around one square in the very center of Bratislava city.

One of  Waves Bratislava goals is to highlight and live up to the immense potential of Bratislava as a music city. You can expect multi-club nights with sounds of indie-pop/rock, electronica, rock’n’roll, pop, folk, ska, jazz and world music resonating across the capital of Slovakia.

The international future stars will find their new temporary home, joined by the host of most interesting and forward thinking musicians of the Slovak scene.

The program of the festival spreads over two days (2nd and 3rd October) which equals to more than 120 concerts in 12 venues located in a stone’s throw distance from each other.

Additionally, this year will start with an opening party on 1st October with Mike Skinner and we are also pleased to announce the “comeback” of the Old Market Hall (Stará tržnica) as the flagship venue of the festival. The entry to all gigs at the Old Market Hall during the festival will be free of charge.

The integral part of Waves Bratislava is the music conference, divided into two days between both sister events – Vienna (1st October) and Bratislava (2nd October).

Both festival cities will be connected with a shuttle bus, available for free to all Waves Central Europe Festival Pass holders, running on Friday and Saturday.

This is surely a “not to be missed” extended weekend. Go on the music trip, wander from club to club, immerse yourself in various music genres and discover the movers & shakers of the world and crème de la crème of the Slovak music scene.
