Vienna's Donauinselfest is Europe's biggest free outdoor music festival, kicking off tonight for a weekend of music that is expected to attract over 3 million guests. 


The festival centers on the Danube Island (Donauinsel) that splits the Danube on Vienna's western side. There are 19 areas, with 11 stages, and a wide range of music. Each stage has its own focus; they are sponsored by radio stations, newspapers and others.


Although the festival is free, it costs about €4 million to stage it—but visitors are expected to spend about €40 million in Vienna's stores, bars, restaurants and more.
