The Halloween Event of the Year!
he Vienna Techno scene is a multicolored, versatile platform that is growing in members daily, which means the styles and genres within this specific community are ever changing as well.
With that, different labels in the city have emerged, deciding on the styles, genres, and sub-genres they want to present. While these label-based houses are very creative and supportive within themselves, it’s the newcomers and “label-less” individuals AND artists that are having a hard time finding recognition and a way to start off their careers or polish and work on their skill sets.
This, combined with a counterproductive gap and show-off between established and renowned labels, leads the scene to stay divided and dispersed instead of forming a community which is what this underground movement really needs.
The idea behind MASKENTANZ is to join forces among the variety of Tec labels, uniting labels through music as well as a concept of anonymity through masks and dark looks. The music will be carefully curated by choosing and picking the right DJs and their distinguished sound from various labels as well as introducing new artists with interesting and unique sounds. As there will be two separated floors there will be an even wider possibility of music and sounds you can choose from.
Heavily inspired by dark circuit parties, fetish events and queer bathhouses, the event, as much as it is a pure dance event, should promote tolerance, equality and love all throughout every aspect of the night.
Turning the celebration of the human body, all sexualities, gender, and music into a place of deep and dark worship of all of the above as well as deriving from ancient cults, covens and dark traditions, the event is to be heavily inspired by such raw, ritualistic settings.
TWO FLOORS- ALL NIGHT:
According to the name of the event, a MASK is ABSOLUTELY necessary and the only dress code that is mandatory. In case there are guests with no mask or other specific costume, party favors will be handed out varying from black pantyhose to white paper masks.
coda of the night:
ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS IT DOESN'T HURT NOBODY
