Top-Acts

Spielberg has already played host to the biggest bands in the world as a concert venue. As part of the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Austria 2014, six further top acts are to make history at the Austrian racing circuit. On Friday and Saturday evening, Hitradio Ö3 and Projekt Spielberg are to treat motor sport fans to top bands from Austrian and international rock. Headlining the Ö3 concerts and firing up the fans will be Sunrise Avenue and Sportfreunde Stiller.

Sound of the guitar meets engines. The long wait for the return of Formula 1 to Austria is going to be well worth the while for the fans. To help make the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Austria 2014 an unforgettable experience off the track too, Hitradio Ö3 and Projekt Spielberg are to present six rock bands right by the Red Bull Ring. The concerts are sure to provide some thorough competition to the roar of the engines on the track and offer some more incredible highlights of the weekend of motor sport. Both days will see one Austrian and two international top acts appear. On Friday, a Freestyle MotoX Show will also provide some fitting motor sport-based variety while on Saturday the Red Bull Skydive Team are to put in a stunning aerial performance. Formula 1 tickets are valid as entry tickets for the concerts over the Grand Prix weekend. Around 25,000 visitors therefore have the chance to see the action on the stage each day, on a first come, first served basis. Those who would like to play it safe can book a spot by inputting their Formula 1 ticket number into the Spielberg App, which will be available for free in the App Store from around two weeks ahead of the Grand Prix of Austria.

Austrian and international rockers. The kick-off concert on Friday is to be opened by the local heroes of the Sado Maso Guitar Club from Graz in a creative wander through rock and pop history. After a short break, US indie rock band AWOLNATION are to take to the stage. The headliners of the first day of the concert are German act Sportfreunde  Stiller with their hits like  Ein  Kompliment  and  Applaus,  Applaus. On Saturday, Styrian musicians will again be tasked with getting the atmosphere among the audience firing on all cylinders, with the Millions of Dreads band gladly accepting this challenge. Swedish group Mando Diao, who recently released their successful Black Saturday single, will then step into the proceedings. The finale of the two-day concert extravaganza at the Red Bull Ring will be provided by Sunrise Avenue from Finland with their songs like Hollywood Hills and Fairytale Gone Bad. Upon being asked what connects him with Formula 1, singer Samu Haber had a fitting answer, saying: “I was in Barcelona four times already. If you sit on the stand by the pit line and the engines are revving, it is like being roared at by a wall of amps – full power!” The fill interview is available in the June edition of The Red Bulletin (from 13 May).

Live music in the whole region. Guitars and mixers will get switched on from 17:00 CET on Friday and Saturday right after the racing action concludes at the Red Bull Ring. Plenty of live music of various genres will be provided along with true hospitality and cosiness from the Styria region from 19 to 22 June at a number of restaurants and bars in the entire region around Spielberg.
