This festival, which started in 1976, is one of Europe’s most important music events and the largest festival in Switzerland, with styles ranging from pop, rock, funk, and hip hop to world music, French chanson, jazz, and classic. Over 6 days and nights each year, more than 300 concerts and shows on 7 stages are on offer, as well as 150 food stalls, for the 300,000 visitors who fill the festival site situated above the town of Nyon, near Lake Leman. This year’s line-up includes Black Eyed Peas, Rosalia, Indochine, Aya Nakamura, Josman, Dinos, Jain, Phoenix, Imany, and many more.
The festival grounds can be reached in about 2.5 hours from Basel by car or 2 hours 45 minutes by train followed by a 30-minute walk from the Nyon train station; there are also free busses.
Tickets are CHF 88-98 (CHF 73-83 for kids and students). Tickets for these concerts sell out rather quickly but you may be able to get some through their ticket market (
