In the Canton of Bern hardly a day goes by without a musical highlight

From multi-day festivals with world-class acts to classical and jazz events: much to the locals’ and visitors’ delight, music of every genre booms in Bern.
Whether it is the Greenfield Festival or the Gurten Festival, both have gained a positive reputation beyond the Swiss borders. Every year, they attract the stars of the music scene, without forgetting the famous and not-so-famous names of the Swiss music industry. The various food stalls ensure that visitors have enough strength to keep on dancing. Even bad weather fails to spoil the mood of the festivalgoers. It’s a simple matter of putting the rain macs on and keep on dancing.

From timeless classics to spontaneous sessions

Classical music and jazz events have equally found their place in the Canton of Bern. Once a year in Wengen, Mendelssohn and his multi-faceted works take center stage. Marian’s Jazzroom has gained a worldwide reputation for its unique accoustics and regularly welcomes big names in the jazz music scene. And while the international Opernwerkstatt in Sigriswil and the violin pedagogue Zakhar Bron put talented young musicians in the limelight, visitors in Adelboden and Meiringen listen to experienced orchestras.
