Rock band WANDA kicks off the ski season in Obertauern on December 1, 2018

Munich/Obertauern, July 12, 2018. Winter sports lovers can take the German lyrics “Du wirst von Sternen high” (You get high on stars) quite literally in Obertauern. Way up there, not only the stars will shine brighter against the dark night sky, but the brilliant rock stars of WANDA, the cult band of the Austrian indie rock scene, will light up the audience with their live performance, up close and personal. From November 30 until December 2, 2018, the snowiest holiday destination in Austria will kick off the winter season, culminating on Saturday, December 1, with a grand opening concert featuring WANDA.

Every year Obertauern invites top-notch superstars to hit the open-air stage set against the backdrop of the breath-taking mountain range and get winter sports enthusiasts tuned for the upcoming fantastic ski season in Austria’s “snow bowl”. Vienna band WANDA topped the charts in 2014 with their debut album “Amore”, garnering platinum awards with their albums “Bussi” and “Niente”, pocketing several local awards, all the while giving a hundred concerts as a playful encore.

Accordingly, the ski season launch motto in Obertauern is “Bussi, Baby” (Kiss me, baby), spiked with loads of sing-along, dancing and celebration, when the musicians of WANDA perform their latest hits: “Columbo”, “0043” and naturally “Weiter, weiter”. Anyone that can’t wait to see Marco Michael Wanda and his four bandmates live should circle December 1 as well as September 1 in their calendars in bright red, as the latter date will see ticket pre-sales open at the Tourist Office Obertauern and at
