Nova Rock Festival 2023, 7-10 June. Best music events in Austria

Nova Rock

WHERE: Nickelsdorf, Austria
WHEN: from 07 to 10 June 2023

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 2023 edition promises to be truly of great impact with high-sounding names on the international scene.

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.
