The nuclear Power Plant 


In the middle of the endless fields of Lower Austria, next to beautiful Danube there is the worldwide unique nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf. Finished in 1976 - but never activated - it is waiting in the wings to be filled with new energy.

Those old bones will be shattered and turned into a festival location with its very own spirit. Thousands of visitors gather here to escape the everyday and party to the kicks of the harder styles for hours of insanity.
