Since 1985, the annual and internationally famous Jazzfestival Konfrontationen has taken place in Nickelsdorf.
From 9 June to 12 June 2005, the Nova Rock Festival took place in Nickelsdorf with headliners like Die Ärzte, System of a Down, The Prodigy, and Green Day. Every day, there were 30,000 fans in this small village next to the border to Hungary. And one year later in 2006, the Nova Rock Festival drew, with over 50 bands, no less than 150,000 visitors. With famous bands like Metallica and Guns N' Roses, it was the largest ever rock festival in Austria.
