What are the Swiss Live Talents… ?

  • A national springboard whose aim is to help Swiss artists that play live.
  • Everyone gets visibility (compilations, hoodies, …).
  • The winners of the categories not only receive money, but also some support during the two years that follow the award ceremony and get the chance to play in Switzerland as well as abroad (France, UK, USA, Serbia… !).
  • A concrete example? Rootwords, Best Urban Act 2013, recently performed during a whole week in New York!
