Summerstage 2023 – music in the park

29.06.2023 to 01.07.2023

Compared to many other Swiss festivals, Summerstage in Basel is still relatively new. But of course, this is no reflection on its quality. In just a short period of time, the open-air concert in Park im Grünen in the center of Basel has become a firm favorite with the locals. The line-up always features a mix of great Swiss bands and famous artists from around the world.

Summerstage 2023 will be no exception, with this year’s stars including Hecht, Clueso, Bonnie Tyler, Lo & Leduc, Tom Odell and Chris Norman. Everything is crammed into three suitably themed evenings with a relaxed ambience. Anyone who attends Summerstage is sure to return.

Moon&Stars 2023 – stars in the old town

13.07.2023 to 23.07.2023

Moon&Stars will more than live up to its name again this year. The first acts for the series of open-air concerts have already been announced and are sure to impress: Peter Maffay, Göla, OneRepublic, Eros Ramazzotti and Joss Stone have been confirmed so far and many more names will follow in the coming weeks.

It’s not only the music that makes Moon&Stars so unique; its location is just as spectacular. In the heart of the Ticino city of Locarno, the artists will be rocking the Piazza Grande until even the beams of its beautiful buildings are bouncing to the beat. During Moon&Stars, the whole of Locarno is given over to music because, in addition to the main stage, the festival also spreads throughout the city with street food, smaller stages and lots of entertainment on offer.

The atmosphere on Piazza Grande in Locarno helps to make Moon&Stars such a spectacular success.
