Continuation of the German cooperation at Waves Vienna 2021

After a successful start at last year’s edition, German acts will again be jointly presented to an international audience of professionals under the umbrella brand WANDERLUST at Waves Vienna.

Initiative Musik gGmbH and the regional pop music funding bodies popNRW (Landesmusikrat NRW), Pop-Büro Region Stuttgart, RockCity Hamburg e.V. and Verband für Popkultur in Bayern e.V.
