VIII. SCHATZKAMMERSAAL - "Heuriger"
WEINVIERTLER BLOS - rustic and authentic musicians from probably the coziest part of Lower Austria, the Weinviertel. Musically a contrast to the otherwise so widespread Bohemian brass band music, they play a mix of Austrian and Alpine folk music and also entertain with live, typically Austrian coziness and incomparable Weinviertel "Schmäh". They give the "Heurigen" in the Schatzkammersaal an authentic and incomparable flair.
IX. GARTENSAAL - DISCO
We are looking forward to 2:tages:bart at the WU Ball 2023! As the sons of two restaurateurs, the show talent has been in their legs since childhood. Their love for music and their open and likeable nature led them to the stages of the country. The closeness to the audience and the spontaneous and creative interludes of the two always bring the parties to a boil. Whether an improvised joke or a dance interlude, every show of the two is different and guarantees variety and fun.
