The packed program includes international and home-grown artists alike - and on 14 different stages, from jazz club Porgy & Bess to the Filmcasino.
Mostly double concerts, which present two accordion bands in a single evening, are on the calendar from 23 February to 24 March. Around 40 concerts reflect the full stylistic range of the accordion between tradition and lots of innovation.
The program highlight "Nordlichter" is provided by Scandinavian accordion stars, including the Norwegian Guro von Germeten with her Schwindelfrei Orchestra. Other international guests include the trio Colin/Peirani/Lugue and world music giant Bratsch from France, Blowzabella from the UK and Melingo from Argentina.
The Austrian accordion scene is represented by the young talent Paul Schuberth, Maria Theres Stickler, Christian Bakanic and Walther Stojka. Well known hereabouts are Willi Resetarits & Stubenblues, the Vienna Tschuschenkapelle, Dobrek Bistro and, of course, the Austrian perennial accordion star Otto Lechner, who conducts the Zieharmonisches Orchestra at the opening gala.
Also recommended are the silent movie matinee with live accordion accompaniment in the Filmcasino and the children's program Magic Afternoon.
