10 culinary things you need to know about this year’s Nova Rock:

  • For all non-beer-drinkers among you there are a number of special bars, including our Spritzer and cocktail bars. Again on the spot to refresh you: Jägermeister Hirschrevier, Captain’s Bar, Met and for the first time in 2018 the Whiskey & Gin Bar as well as Meine Kleine Kokosnuss (My little coconut).
  • Every day from 1.30 pm to 4 pm you can get your drink served in our 0,5l Nova Rock Limited Edition Festival cup. (For as long as stocks last).
  • In case you cannot wait for this year’s Nova Rock to start – our Festival-Webshop is up and running. Besides the vital amount of Ottarocker beer (in cans!) you can order a variety of other articles to make your festival experience as enjoyable as possible.

Here is a more extensive overview of 2018’s culinary offers:

Come visit the Captain and his Morganettes live at the Captain’s Bar in front of the Blue Stage. Have a legendary picture taken with him and your friends and get one of the sought-after Captain Morgan goodies with your drink. Besides classics like Captain & Coca Cola there is the very delicious Captain Nova – if you don’t believe us, have a taste!

And since the Captain cannot miss a party look out for his cabin in the party zone!

Fancy a delicious Craft Beer?! As last year the Ottakringer booth for special kinds of beer offers a tasteful selection in cooperation with Brauwerk and other Craft Beer Breweries. You will find various beer specialties as well as lagers.

We have the perfect souvenir for you – every day from 1.30 pm to 4 pm you can get your drink served in our 0,5l Nova Rock Limited Edition Festival cup. (For as long as stocks last).

Being early pays off. Just look out for the special cup at your most frequented beer booth. There is a chance you will find our limited edition design cup anywhere on the premises. The deposit is the same as for regular cups. And if you feel like keeping it as a token of remembrance, just don’t give it back.

Our favourite Nova Rock tradition is most definitely the legendary morning pint at the Red Stage on the last day of the festival – with our headliner of hearts Wendis Böhmische Blasmusik. Every year thousands of festival guests join together at 11 am to take part in this highlight.

Ottakringer Brewery invites you to witness the tapping of a fresh barrel and treats you to free beer right in front of the Red Stage. This year, morning pint will start on Sunday at 11 am. So come quick and party on!

Discover a new culinary world daily and revitalize for the next festival adventure. You will find various stands from near to far. And of course our festival classics won’t be missing!

We are celebrating the 5-year-anniversary of Genuss Arena Burgenland! It presents a milestone for Nova Rock’s culinary development and has become an acclaimed destination we don’t want to be without. Our terrace of delight is located centrally in front of the Blue Stage and offers sun sails and comfortable seating.

To celebrate this anniversary accordingly we invited star chef Max Stiegl, who cooks with passion and affinity for the Burgenland-cuisine. Try the Balkan burger and the goose kebab for a real gourmet treat.

We attach great importance to high quality food that is tasty and made from regional ingredients. Our producers and local farmers have worked their magic to come up with great recipes including all the regional flavours. And since anticipation is half the pleasure it’s not too early to get in the mood for sucking pig, Alpine kebab, spaetzle dumplings, strudel variations, meat loaf sandwich and many more.

Get comfortable and take your time. We recommend cool Red Bull Organics Simply Cola or Red Bull Organics Ginger Ale, which will both compliment the food and keep you perfectly refreshed.

The Food Courts are opened till midnight. Then it’s time for our cleaning troupe to make everything tidy and accommodating for the next day.

It began with a funky thought and is now one of Nova Rock’s trademark symbols – the black Ottarocker can – officially available at all shops.

Whiskey does not equal to Whisky. Everybody has gin fever, but what’s a Rock festival without a good cup of Whisk(e)y Cola. That is why this year we will provide a container for the Whiskey & Gin lovers among you. We prepared a variety of Whiskeys for you – served on the rocks. And if you’re uncertain about your favorite type our staff will gladly offer some advice.

The Wiener Café will open its tarpaulins for you in the heart of the camp site. Come by for imperial vibes and the most popular desserts of Austrian cuisine – among them the infamous Kaiserschmarrn (sweet cut-up pancake). Perfect for people with a sweet tooth or a hangover-breakfast. Coffee lovers, listen up: there are also several variations of coffee ranging from espresso, melange, Americano, milk coffee to tea and hot chocolate. There’s enough time to go to breakfast for early birds as well as sleepyheads.

There are all together 6 breakfast tents all over the camp site that will garantuee a good start to your day.

In case you want something a little more extra just visit the Nova Rock Greisslerei to enrich your first meal of the day choosing from a huge variety of groceries.

To find all breakfast locations, please consult the area map.

For those who want to kick start the day there is a mobile camp site troupe selling Ottarocker for your ROCK-FRÜHSTÜCK including a cooled 0,5l can of Ottarocker and Red Bull for energy. Perfect for those who have a hard time getting out of their tents after a long party night!

We think our party zone still lacks the so called icing on the cake. Every successful party night deserves the grande finale at the quaintly traditional sausage stand. An after-hour location with the right ingredients for closing time.
