Danube Island closed! – “Please don’t come to the party again”


The crowds were so great on the first day that the organizers of the Danube Island Festival had to close the island. Shortly before the RAF Camora appearance, it was said: “Please don’t come again.”

Dear DIF Fans! Due to the great interest of visitors in the program of the Festbühne and the continuing strong influx of people, we ask you, in the interest of everyone’s safety, not to continue on the way to the #danubefest to do it’, the festival management tweeted shortly before the performance of star rapper RAF Camora, who unsurprisingly turned out to be a visitor magnet.

“There’s no point in coming anymore”
Shortly afterwards, the Viennese police also said: “Dear people, we join the request, if you are not yet on the Danube Island, it actually makes little sense to come!” Rapper RAF Camora spoke of “800,000 people who are here”. Whether there were really that many cannot be independently verified – but that the island was already tight on the first festival day – that probably didn’t happen often before the Corona break.

Despite the rainy weather, the influx to the island in the evenings was uninterrupted and the mood was great. The mayor of Vienna Michael Ludwig (SPÖ) and the new SPÖ boss Andreas Babler also braved the weather during a tour of the working world island. There was a lot of shaking hands and taking selfies for the two.

Own security concept for RAF Camora concert
All in all, the festival, organized by the Viennese SPÖ, has a length of four and a half kilometers with 13 stages and 700 hours of programming. Every day there are 800 police officers present. Also, 300 security forces have to ensure that everything runs smoothly and 250 paramedics and paramedics are also present. A special security concept was devised for the big highlight on the first day – the RAF Camora concert. The area in front of the stage was divided into three sectors, the influx controlled.
