Gumpoldskirchen Weinfest 2019

Gumpoldskirchen Weinfest 2019

Wine glasses and white tablecloths set out on tables in the main street of Gumpoldskirchen, Audis and the occasional Ferrari and Maserati parked discretely nearby. Traditional folk singer and fiddle on a small stage. A modern-day and Austrian scene out of Breughel or a set for Die Meistersinger. Next night, the rock band turn up and it all changes. A baccanale with cracking bass and drums, mighty brass and a singer whipping the crowd on to their feet on the cobbled streets: Skolka play Gumpoldskirchen Weinfest.
