Ars Electronica Festival 2018

The Big Concert Night has become one of the festival’s fixed points and absolute highlights and simultaneously marks the beginning of the international Brucknerfest 2018. The spectacular Train Hall of POSTCITY with its powerful but harmonious acoustics has given the special encounter between symphony orchestra and digital music in recent years an additional and impressive uniqueness that challenges us to create special productions.
