Panel – 4. September

Switzerland – Land of Festivals

14:00 - 15:00

Switzerland has the highest number of festivals per capita in the world. A presentation with background information about some of the most important Swiss festivals.

Swiss Business Mixer – Zürich trifft Berlin

Despite its smallness, Switzerland is an important market for German and European artists. With its high number of festivals and concert venues, it will be interesting to discuss how this small market works and how it survives – with a special focus on the question, how European artists can profit from these special circumstances.

In a first panel »Switzerland – Land of Festivals«, Swiss festival bookers will present their strategy and give an inside view of their event. In a second panel called »Meet the Zurich Club Scene«, a row of promoters will discuss the importance of the music scene for Zurich and the interaction with their Berlin partners. After the two panels, there will be live sets by the very unique artist »OY« and the band »WOLFMAN« (both also performing at the m4music night at Postbahnhof). A famous Swiss cheese Raclette will be served, giving a perfect surrounding to meet the Swiss and Zurich music business.
