The City of Vienna prides itself in being out of the ordinary – “Wien ist anders” promise the posters from the Vienna Tourism Board. But if “Vienna is different”, the Viennese Technoball is really different – mixing the costumes of Carnival and the drubbing of DJs, with the “I’ll try anything” spirit of Cabaret. For one thing, there’ the dress...
