In 1994 the City of Lugano lauched Palco ai Giovani, in order to create an opportunity for emerging bands and artists from the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland to perform – in many cases for the very first time – in a real live concert situation and on a big stage. In 25 years, Palco ai Giovani became an established reference point for the young local music scene and served as springboard for many bands and artists.
Both the cultural context as well as the available tools for creation and digital distribution of music have changed a lot… but importance and impact of first-hand experience on stage remains unique and irreplaceable. Thus the desire to let the event evolve on a national level and the creation of La Quairmesse.
The aim is to encourage both creativity and exchange between language regions through two days of concerts, triggering new inputs and meeting ponits.
Artists of different origin, age and paths will meet in Lugano, illustrating the lively and surprising Swiss music scene and aiming to be heard beyond the national borders.
Two nights on three outdoor stages on the city quais, with music as first national language and bridge between cultures.
Until March 4, 2019, programmers actively welcome booking proposals. To submit your music, simply click on the “book my band” button (desktop only) of the La Quairmesse – Mx3 page
Rock’Oz Arènes dedicates its “casino stage” exclusively to Swiss bands and artists, in collaboration with Mx3 and Swiss Live Talents.
From August, 15 to August, 18 2018, the line up features:
Long Tall Jefferson
Dirty Sound Magnet
The Dead Brothers
18.8. – Make Plain
ENJOY!!! C U THERE…
What would you like to listen to tonight? Why not go out and discover some of the awesome live acts that play only for you. Support them with a visit in your local concert place. Swiss music is vivid and only waits to be explored.
Would you rather like some Folk like Ana And The Black Mamba or Blues by Bluez Ballz, or rather some Pop like Heidi Happy or Fedora Saura? Or are you rather in the mood for some metal as Infinitas or self explaining Burn Out Punkrock? Or do you in contrast prefer Reggae, maybe from Sayam, Famara or an album release party by Kulturattentat?
… that’s just a tiny part! For the lovers of Rock, Techno, Hip Hop, Breakbeats, whatever you prefer you will find something that will please you.
Give it a go and cheers to some excellent concerts and parties tonight, all over Switzerland and elsewhere, whoever you decide to listen to!

We are not kidding you: Thirty-one concerts listed all across Switzerland and Lichtenstein for tonight only!

That this weekend is not meant to be one that you spent sitting inside, is self-explaining.
Beside the big festivals such as the Montreux Jazz, the Blue Balls in Lucerne or the Gurtenfestival in Bern (here you can see and hear the winner of our public voting determing the line up of the stage “Waldbühne” MAKE PLAIN, THE GARDENER & THE TREE, IWAN PETROWITSCH and VONATION), you can find numerous little festivals and concerts nearby.
Mx3.ch wishes you a nice weekend with lots of music and dancing.
