Austria, officially the Republic of Austria, is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It bordersGermany and the Czech Republic to the north, Slovakia and Hungary to the east, Slovenia andItaly to the south, and Switzerland and Liechtenstein to the west. The capital is the city of Vienna on the Danube River.
Since 2003 Austria’s Psytrance scene has been associated with one of Europe’s biggest international festivals – Sonnenklang at the castle of Dobra in Lower Austria. As the 5-days-festival attracted somewhat 8000 people in 2006, because of heavy rainfalls only 1500 people came in 2007. Unforgettable was Olli Wisdoms gig with his new guitarist mixing Purple Haze and Star Spangled Banner of Jimi Hendrix. The future of the festival is still unclear – many questions are still unsolved.
- Austria has a Psy-scene in almost all provinces with lots of festivals and parties with also international acts around the year. Party folks are friendly and open-minded.
- Police raids at parties are rare but happen sometimes on summer festivals. Drugs are illegal although smoking is mostly tolerated. Grow-shops are to find everywhere.
