Country and Western: Black Angels Line Dancer (Fri), Howdy (Sat), Best of the West (Sun)
But it is advisable to meet up with your friends before getting to Donauinsel. There are always lots and lots of people and mobile networks are often so busy that reaching each other gets very difficult:-)
Public transport is always really well organised. The undergrounds U1 and U6 will run through the night on Friday and Saturday. From our hotel you can get there by U6 from Westbahnhof.
One last fact: In order to reduce waste only environmentally friendly cups will be used in order to reduce the production of CO2. Around 500,000 pieces will make their way round the festival:-)
