Regula Ritler 11:30 - 12:00 and 12:30 - 13:30
Regula Ritler took up yodelling at the age of 11 and now runs her own yodelling school. Her repertoire consists of traditional Valais and Swiss yodelling songs. She will be performing solo in Milan. 


Tschill 16:00 - 16:30 and 17:00 - 18:00
With two singer-songwriters on board – Daniel Blatter and Will Jungo – this pop group creates a soundtrack to our lives and to the future: poetic, humorous, critical, visionary, soulful, moving, and sung in Swiss dialect. A musical and literary treat from Upper Valais. 


Erika Stucky 20:00 - 21:00
Fearless, apocalyptic, suicidal yodelling, anarchic yelping, Dylanesque nasal tones – there are many sides to Erika Stucky. With voice, mini-accordion and video projection, she wraps us around her fingers in no time.

Ephraim Salzmann 12:00 - 12:30 , 13:00 - 13:30 and 14:30 - 15:00
This musician from Naters has been fascinated by percussion instruments since childhood. He has gradually developed his own form of musical expression on a variety of percussion instruments from all over the world such as drum set, cajon, djembe, congas, hammered dulcimer, didgeridoo, xylophone and glass udu drums to name just a few.   


Laurence Revey 18:30 - 19:00 and 19:30 - 20:00
True to her musical roots, vocalising and rhythms take pride of place when Laurence Revey puts on a show. Timeless Alpine songs, tribal pop, electro-acapella and never-ending depth. Organic and intimate, her unique voice is both daringly modern yet somehow timeless.

Swiss Miss 12:00 - 12:30 , 13:00 - 13:30 and 14:30 - 15:00
Vocal music has never sounded so fresh or sassy! Eliane Amherd (voc, guit), Iris Moné (voc, perc, flute), Sandra Merk (bass) play folk music from all over Switzerland, sung in every dialect, in surprising arrangements infused with rhythm. Swiss Miss will make you yearn for home while also inspiring wanderlust.    


Hugo 17:00 - 17:30 , 18:30 - 19:00 and 19:30 - 20:00
The band’s five members like to put their diverse talents to the test in a theatrical setting now and again.  They are dedicated to the French art of chanson, which they explore to the full.

Apartig 12:30 - 13:30 and 14:00 - 14:30
The ensemble “apartig” carries audiences away with its melancholy, dreamy and pulsating rhythms. Yodelling and fast finger work, traditional and new, near and far go hand in hand. 


Anach Cuan 16:30 - 17:00 and 17:30 - 18:30
Valais group Anach Cuan makes music bursting with energy – a fusion of modern and Celtic sounds. Alive and kicking, they dance, stomp and play until they set the whole place shaking. No wonder, these guys love what they do down to the very roots of their soul.

Vanessa Grand 11:30 - 12:00 and 13:00 - 13:30
Numerous hit on the charts, countless appearance on both national and international stage, her own music-festival "Vanessa Grand Open Air" as well as a nomination as "Music Queen" on the "Achims Hitparade" competition show the success of the native of Leuk.

The valaisian folk singer Christine Zufferey will be performing on acoustic and twelve-string guitar together with Emilie Cavallo and her cello. Her voice has a dusky and clear quality with depth, moving from shades of electronica to melancholy to warmth.     


Klischée 20:00 - 21:00
Cliché? Their music is anything but. They remix familiar tunes to create a fresh club sound ranging from house to exuberant electro-swing to more experimental sounds.
