Nazar feat. Yasmo & SK Invitational

Karlsplatz, 2014

Now that’s a one-of-a-kind performance! Austria’s biggest rapper Nazar, feminist spoken word artist Yasmo, and the 10-piece HipHop Big Band SK Invitational take over the stage on the opening day of 2014’s Popfest and blow away 10.000 people with a massive set. For the performance of Nazar’s “An Manchen Tagen” Yasmo joins in and with a brand-new verse written just for this occasion, adding a female perspective to the song. The two artists on stage could hardly have more different approaches towards HipHop, but they share the courage to speak up for their convictions and don’t shy away from confrontation. The crowd cheers enthusiastically, and, who knows, maybe the collaboration will be continued at some point…

Karlsplatz is a centrally located square, situated between the inner city and the fourth district. In the late 19th century the square was erected on the former riverbed of Wienfluss, which was regulated and canopied. Karlsplatz lies at the foot of the massive and splendid Karlskirche, Vienna’s largest baroque church. Moreover Art-Nouveau-style Otto Wagner Pavillon with Club U, historic Wien Museum, project space, Künstlerhaus, brut and the Technical University are situated on or in the vicinity of the square. The square and its environment have experienced various transfigurations. It has changed from a notorious place for drug dealing to a popular hang out spot. In summer Popfest Wien brings live shows to Karlsplatz, while in winter the square is converted into a big Christmas market.
