„We stand with Ukraine“ - This was the benefit concert in Vienna's Ernst Happel Stadium
💙💛 WE STAND WITH UKRAINE 💙💛
Solidarity and a quick, uncomplicated support are of particular importance at the moment, so 4GAMECHANGERS supports the comprehensive fundraising campaign for Volkshilfe and for "Nachbar in Not", in cooperation with ORF, with all its power.
In the spirit of the 4GAMECHANGERS motto "The Power of Cooperation", the benefit concert "We stand with Ukraine" at Vienna's Ernst Happel Stadium on March 19, 2022, organised by Nova Rock founder Ewald Tatar, was broadcast on TV and livestreamed on PULS24 as well as on Zappn.
Unbelievable! The event was sold out: over 40. 000 people attended this open-air and were delighted by a diverse and colourful line-up, which sent an important signal as well as a loud "We stand with Ukraine" to the current situation with a large contingent of the Austrian music scene, such as Bilderbuch, Pizzera & Jaus, Seiler & Speer, Wanda, Mathea, Yung Hurn, Turbobier, Josh, Mavi Phoenix, Lisa Pac, Bibiza & Eli Preiss and Eazy.
Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen and his wife Doris Schmidbauer also took the opportunity to address a few words to the stadium guests. Van der Bellen said on stage: "The evening is a sign for peace and democracy, a sign of solidarity for the people of Ukraine." Ukraine, he said, is a country like ours, where people fight for our values - "a country where people want to live in freedom, where people don't want to be told how to live and who to love."
The surprise of the day was the video message from "Live Aid" organiser Bob Geldof. He warned, "No one can live in peace who does not live in freedom. When people call for peace, we have to remember that that has to be the ongoing effort of our lives."
