"PADDYSFEST – Vienna’s greatest St. Patrick’s Day Party ever" once again transforms the entire Ottakringer Brewery on Saturday, 17th of March, into the biggest pub of the country to celebrate the most sympathetic & hilarious reunion between young and young-in-heart people from 18-99.
Up to 3.500 St. Patrick’s Day fans will not only experience an unforgettable night but the best PADDYSFEST ever as well. Spend some time at our massive LIVE Floor and listen to 4 brilliant Live-Bands and 1 Live-Act that guide you through all different kinds of Irish Live Music from Traditionals to Celtic Punk at the very end. Don't miss the official opening at 9pm with a St. Patrick's Day Medley performed by a pianist and sopranist (there will be Pop/Punk Songs included as well). Check out the Pub Floor, the Silent Disco or up to 3 more floors as well and be sure that our massive tanks are once again filled with loads of fresh, green beer! Oh, and don't miss the legendary fotostation where you can get your very personal picture with our leprechaun and win awesome prizes!
Our center piece once again is the massive LIVE Floor at the „Hefeboden“ of the Ottakringer Brewery with Irish Live Music & Dance during the whole night. We have 4 Live-bands and 2 live acts this year who will demonstrate the different facets of Irish music and show. Expect the typical traditionals & folk music, a funky style with drumset, melodic tunes, the "classical interpretation" of our pianist and sopranist and even unrestrained Celtic Punk – more than 5 hours of fantastic live music (even excluding the pub floor :) )! What about Irish dance? Well, we even did not forget about that! ;-)
LIVE-Acts of PADDYSFEST 2018:
After 20 years on stage Na Mahones ò Inis Beag (Gaelic for: The Mahones from the small isle") have proven to be one of the best Irish Folk bands around. The play on traditional instruments with changing arrangements and 4-6 singing voices. Expect popular Irish & Scottish Traditionals, Dances, and ballads, but also own compositions!
ZUND are 7 awesome musicians who totally committed themselves to Funk music. As a consequence they’ll play traditional Irish Folk Songs & tunes in a funky and very, very, very groovy way! That’s pure energy, also due to the dominent drums in their Live-set! It’s going to be a challenge for you not to dance!
Our „PADDY“ Patrick McMullan comes straight from Belfast. Luckily he has his brilliant band „The Sweaty Socks“ with him! He’s definitely the king of Irish Traditionals and creates unbelievable vibes among the audience. We are sure you’ll cry for more songs from him & the band! No doubt... he's a Pro that already jammed with „Screaming Lord Sutch“, Motörhead oder Gary Moore.
NA from China will open PADDYSFEST 2018. She definitely has the longest travel of all and will play a very exclusive St. Patrick's Day Medley, created just for this years' PADDYSFEST.
Her crisp medley will not only contain traditionals, but also songs from Folk Punk Bands and hits from Ireland.
Additionally to our pianist
NA, Viennese soprano singer Petra Halper-König will join the medley strong-voicedly and demonstrate her wide-ranging repertoire.
Celtic Punk Band FIRKIN has played more than 500 shows worldwide, was on stage together with Flogging Molly or at the worlds #1 Metal Festival in Wacken, and definitely is one of the best live bands in this genre. They bring their brandnew album "We are the Ones" with them - but will not forget the typical St. Patrick's Day Hits as well! Expect massive circle pit action with this late night headliner at PADDYSFEST 2018.
During the changeovers you’ll witness perfect Irish dance by the Shamrock Dance Company Vienna. They have a broad program for you pub & promise to make the stage quake! Don't miss their funny workshop from 8 to 8:50 at the mainfloor! ;-)
After the bands DJ Fly will play the best Rock, Pop- und Indie-Songs from Ireland till curfew.
CHILL-OUT, DANCE, QUIZ & UNPLUGGED LIVE MUSIC
Next to the Live-Floor you’ll find „The Pub“. A cosy place to chat while our bands jam spontaneously next & together with you. Join the free dance workshops from Shamrock Dance Company or attend our innovative Live-Quiz STREAMQUIZ: Answer 6 questions (topics are Ireland & St. Patrick’s Day) correct and win a free drink!
In case the concert floor has to be closed due to too many people (this has never happened before due to the fact that we have so many interesting things going on in the whole location), the concerts will be broadcasted live here on a huge screen.
Pub Quiz from 8 till 2!
BAD TASTE, PARTY- & CHARTHITS
Playing Bad-Taste and Party- & Chartmusic this floor has ever been the stained highlight of the party! Cotton Eye Joe meets Macarane and tons of Partyhits! The decoration will be stained as well… here, at the start of the rainbow. Our resident DJs Spongetob & T-Low, organizers of the legendary Bravo Hits party, guarantee unforgettable impressions.
SILENT DISCO WITH 2 CHANNELS POWERED BY BACARDI
(Channel 1: Rock/Alternative/Hiphop, Channel 2: Oldies&Evergreens)
The leprechaun strictly is silent on where the pot of gold is located. As a consequence it’s silent here as well. Or at least nearly because you might hear some people sing (some of them with passion but totally wrong). When you enter the Silent Disco powered by BACARDI you receive a cable-free headphone where you can switch between 2 channels. On channel 1 our DJs play the best Rock, Alternative & Hiphop songs. Switch to channel 2 and you immediately listen to the best Oldies & Evergreens from the past centuries. Don’t miss the chance to experience a Silent Disco especially if you never have before!
We expect a massive PADDYSFEST 2018 - therefore we open the 5th floor for you ... Ottakringer brewery extended ;-) wow ;-) We'll play powerballads till 2:15 am and than have a decent switch to Electronic and Drum&Bass! Well - you can do this. but only at PADDYSFEST ;-)
Get your ultimate St. Patrick's Day Picture with our leprechaun Dtani and win awesome stuff!
A massive highlight at the party - our fotostation with the leprechaun, where you get your picture printed for free as well. In case you are not green enough we’ll provide hats, glasses and other usefull stuff! Don't lose your picture - the leprechaun might ask you between 1 and 2 o clock somewhere at the party if you took a picture with him. In case you can provide one, you can win really cool stuff ;-)
