DATA: 13 - 16 June 2019
PLACE: Nickelsdorf, Austria
Nickelsdorf is a small Austrian village, on the border with Hungary and Slovakia.
Few attractions, and less than 2000 inhabitants. It is certainly not the place you would consider for a vacation.
From the 2005, however, this statement may not be true.
Every year, in June, one of the most important European festivals takes place here: Nova Rock.
A landmark of the metal genre, hard rock and alternative rock, the festival has become, in a short time, one of the most appreciated events by fans. And, even by the artists.
It is no coincidence that, during the previous editions, they played Guns N 'Roses, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Faith No More, Linkin Park, Prato Jam, Splipknot ...
Impossible to really list them all.
The 2019 edition seems to have had an excellent response. Already in the early hours of the third presale phase, the tickets were literally pulverized!
In June, Nova Rock awaits you with 4 intense days of music and entertainment. Perfect organization, and an excellent lineup, are the basis of the success of the Festival. Enough to carve out a space of respect next to "sacred monsters" like Wacken and Werchter.

The international airport of Vienna-Schwechat, is the starting point for reaching the Nova Rock Festival location.

The plane is the best solution coming from medium / long range destinations.
Whether you are coming by plane or by train, you will need to reach the Vienna Meidling train station and from there continue by train to Nickelsdorf. The journey, by train, lasts on average 80 ', with prices starting from around 10.80 € per person. Generally, there are rides every hour.
From the Nickelsdorf train station, at the cost of 7.00 €, you can use the Nova Rock SHUTTLE BUS. With this ticket, for the whole weekend of the festival, you can make unlimited trips between the Festival area, the center of Nickelsdorf and the train station.
Thursday 13 June 2019, it's off to a great start with Sum 41 and, above all, Slipknot, headliner of the evening.
On Friday, instead, the legendary Slayer and the Smashing Pumpkins will lead the Cure. Also noteworthy is the excellent lineup at Red Bull Music Stage, in the company of Haze and Puddle of Mudd.
Saturday 15, Die Toten Hosen, German band much loved by these parts, and Bonez MC & Raf Camora. The lineup is really interesting, with In Flames, Children Of Boston, Paul Kalkbrenner, In Extremo, Papa Roach.
