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
Basel, february 1 – 2, 2019:
A cold wind is blowing through the streets and at this time of year it’s usually a bit dead in town. But not today, for something very special is in the air..
People are out and about all around town. They walk and ride their bicycles from club to club and there’s music to be heard. Because BScene, the Basel Club Festival celebrates music at its finest.
Since 1996, local, Swiss and international musicians show Basel what they are capable of on stage – and the city dances to their sound!
No matter if you are a star or a newcomer, everybody gets the chance to hit the stage and play to the audience.
With a two-day pass everyone can dive into a huge variety of music genres – Rock, Trap, Hip Hop, Metal…
If you want to know what kind of sounds the clubs are proposing in 2019, check out this year’s Line-Up!
Remember John Dear, which we made you discover in June as they played in Lausanne?
→ If not, watch the video we did at their rehearsal here!
Their first song “Rust & Stardust” can now be heard on their Mx3-Page and it has just entered SRF Virus‘ playlist!

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!
