Vienna Ukulele Nights

The Ukulele festival in Europe’s music capital

About our festival

The Vienna Ukulele Night or VUN started as a yearly festival for ukulele players in Vienna with concerts, workshops and open mic sessions. Organized by the legendary local ukulele club “The Flying Ukuleles”, the VUN-series took off in 2014 and became an instant success, establishing itself as a highlight of the ukulele scene in Vienna.

As the event grew bigger the organisation team took a break in 2019 to regroup. With fresh ideas and renewed energy the team started the preparations for VUN2020 in September, only to be set back by the pandemic.

2023 will be the first year that the VUN will become a two night event, with concerts, open mics, strumalongs and workshops spread out across Friday and Saturday.

Meet the Team

The team organizing the festival is of course super important. Attending meetings, exchanging ideas, making lists, scouting locations, concocting gin, posting on facebook, hosting open mics, booking hotels and inviting artists… are just a few of the things that the team already did for VUN. Can’t list everything here, so we’ll keep it simple.
