Schottenfest Announces Return for 2017

There has always been Celts in Vienna. From the earliest tribes to the Irish monks that founded the Schottenstift in the 12th Century and beyond. Through music, song, literature, language and art, and in recognition of the many peoples who have helped carve out Vienna’s unique identity, the Schottenfest is a contemporary Gaelic Celtic festival to celebrate Vienna’s past, its present and the rich history between Austria, Ireland and Scotland. Founded in 2016 and based on an idea by Shane Ó Fearghail to reintroduce Vienna to it’s Gaelic past, links that stretched over 1,000 years back to Ireland and Scotland, the Schottenfest was realized by Shane Ó Fearghail (Ire), Stuart Neville (Scotland) and Mark Peters (Ire/Eng). With the help of a great crew, solo sponsors and wonderful support, the festival has grown legs.

Following on from the success of the very first Schottenfest in 2016, organisers are very happy to announce that Schottenfest 2017 is going ahead and will take place this year from November 29th – December 3rd in various locations around the city. Where they will once more present live musical events as well as cultural presentations, all of which were a big hit at last years festival. They look forward to Schottenfest 2017 and will announce their lineup soon.
