About Us

We, the CoronaFest, are a joint project by professionals from the event industry to promote Austrian indie bands during the Covid19 crisis. The concept is simple: While due to important regulations to curb the Covid19 pandemic venues are not allowed to be visited and thus music enthusiasts and numerous musicians have to do without celebrating this type of social and cultural gathering, we offer precisely these musicians a stage.

From a cozy and personal film studio atmosphere, we send daily, free live concerts via professionally produced online video stream directly to the viewer's Facebook, YouTube, mixer or Twitch feed. Among the bands appearing are not only the créme de la créme of the emerging independent scene, but also well-established greats of those. 

The central part of these exclusive “living room concerts” is the Virtual Tip Jar. Music enthusiasts, but also all other supporters of the indie scene, have the opportunity to show emerging musicians their appreciation by paying small amounts online and thus support one or the other artist during the crisis.
