Donau Insel Festival - Vienna, Austria  is a 25-year-old annual, open-air, free music festival on the Donauinsel (Island on the Danube), and is the biggest and the most popular open- air festival in Europe. Without the support of 150 workers and 1000 honorary workers it would not be possible to create this fantastic festival.
In most years it has taken place in June.

The Donauinselfest is Europe's biggest open air event; soon expected to reach the 3 million visitors mark. Some 1500 volunteer assistants and visible police resence help make the Donauinselfest one of the most secure events on this scale.

There are about 21 areas (called ‘islands’) that are normally sponsored by radio stations, newspapers and other companies. These are spread out over a 6.5 kilometre area of the total of 21 milometer island. Musicians of an extremely broad range of genres perform.
