Austria’s Biggest Gay Party
Now celebrating 7 years of unforgettable party nights, Circus has developed into the biggest spectacle of its kind in Austria. With a huge fan base and great reputation extending all across Europe, we will always continue to push the boundaries of high quality production and world class entertainment.
“Best Place in the World.”
Entertainment and Confrontation is the motto of Arena Vienna.
Activists who called themselves "Arenauts" presented their first collaborative efforts to rescue Vienna's oldest slaughterhouse on June 27, 1976. More than 200,000 people visited the Arena, including Leonard Cohen who described it as the… “best place in the World.” It was later demolished on October 12, 1976.
Since, the new Arena (the domestic slaughterhouse next door) has become a place for alternative music events of all kinds from Alice Cooper to Katy Perry. Parties, festivals, and open air activities are among the many experiences offered to the Viennese arts and music scene. The Circus team is proud to introduce a more mainstream queer audience to this legendary venue.
