August 17-20


Line Up


Null-Zehn-99 is a hip-hop/pop crew from Dresden. The young quartet knows how to pimp their hip-hop with dance-like rhythms. Definitely the guys belong on the watchlist 2023!

102 Boyz

With aggressive and ruthless rap, the 102 Boyz have built up an ever-growing fanbase since their formation. Their live shows guarantee total demolition every time. Between mosh pits and beer showers, no shirt stays dry.

Alle Farben

Alle Farben is a phenomenon. Although he is a superstar DJ, he has remained the most down-to-earth guy. An incredible number of hits pave the successful path of the Berlin DJ: "Alright", "Let it rain down", "Supergirl", "Bad ideas" or "Little Hollywood". The turntable artist is also much in demand as a remixer for Khalid, Gavin James, Sarah Connor and James Arthur.


Amistat move in the sound world of a modern Simon and Garfunkel with influences from Ben Howard, Kings of Convenience and Kodaline and are definitely best experienced live. Their vocal harmonies create a unique synergy, their authentic lyrics tell of what they have learned in life and love. With them they have the album "Colour in life".


The German-speaking Ayliva made the leap from a TikTok hype into the analog world. In 2022, she released her first album "Weisses Herz" and immediately landed in the middle of the Top10. Her natural charisma and honest charisma are just as captivating as the songs.


Baron.e are incredibly soulful. The fact that they come across as French and, first of all, very sensual, makes them so special. From their universe radiates a festive melancholy, a violent fragility, the desire to dance, but also to cry.

Cypress Hill

Cypress Hill is an American hip-hop group from South Gate, California. Worldwide, the cult stars sold over 20 million albums, multi-platinum albums pave their long career path. They are considered one of the most important precursors of West Coast and 1990s hip-hop. Last year saw the release of their tenth studio album, Back in Black.

Delinquent Habits

These are true hip-hop legends! Over 20 years after their debut single "Tres Delinquentes", the Californians continue to tour tirelessly around the globe and are finally back in this country with their Spanish English rap.

Dino Brandão

Dino Brandao has an eye for baroque, ornamentation and ancient percussion, playing on misty synthesizers, kicking on his drum machine and dancing. Delightfully convoluted in all directions, he can do all that without getting lost. In the COVID era, the masterpiece "Ich liebe dich" was created in collaboration with Sophie Hunger and Faber.


Their name has long stood for folk-pop music 4.0, for cross-genre pop hardstyle blows with folk instruments, for fast-paced, one-of-a-kind genre mash-ups - and above all, for dancefloors full to the brim and exploding.


On the straight-forward dancehall beat, Gentleman belts out scathing arguments to his foes, asserting himself and his musical clout. The message, style and energy of the new songs released in late 2022 make for a classic piece of power dancehall - transposed into our modern times.

Giant Rooks

This is how cool, authentic "Coldplay" pop from Germany sounds. The four guys around singer & guitarist Fred Rabe have an incredible grace how songs have to sound today. Already their debut album "Rookery" landed at number 3 in the German charts. Recently they were on tour in America with Milky Chance. This will probably be "the next big thing from Germany".


Hecht, that's the successful Swiss dialect band around frontman Stefan Buck. But Hecht is also an attitude towards life. Hecht radiates joy. A lot of joy! Every concert is played as if it were the last. Every show is unique for the fans and the band and remains unforgotten. Not for nothing have the five friends long since established themselves as one of the best live bands in the country. Four years after the last studio album, the band released another number one album with "Hecht for life".

Joya Marleen

Joya Marleen is just 20 years old and won three Swiss Music Awards in 2022: Best Female Act, SRF 3 Best Talent and Best Hit with her debut single "Nightmare." The St. Gallen artist was the first Swiss artist to reach the top of the national airplay charts with the song.

Kings Elliot

After her first headlining and festival dates, as well as opening for US pop-rock band Imagine Dragons, Kings Elliot is well on her way to establishing herself as one of alt-pop's leading up-and-coming artists. Her relentless honesty and dedication to the art of songwriting have already endeared her to fans around the world. "Bored of the Circus" adds five beautiful, hauntingly intimate songs to her discography.

L Loko & Drini

"Will nomeh" has become the absolute insider tip among the summer hits of 2022 and now has almost three million streams! The two artists L Loko and Drini have with their second album "Made in Wiedike" a Top2 album at the start. As colorful, multicultural and loud as Wiedikon is also the new duo. Modern hip-hop, influenced by their environment. From trap beats like "Unter Druck", to reggae songs like "Marry Jane" - the two rappers have only just begun!

Lo & Leduc

Lo & Leduc have already been on the road as a band for over ten years and made their breakthrough in 2014 with their album "Zucker fürs Volk". Thanks to their quality as a live act and hits like "Jung verdammt", "079", or "Tribut", they are one of the most popular dialect bands ever. Especially with "079" they broke all records (8 platinum awards, 21 weeks No. 1 in the Swiss single charts). In November 2022, "Luft", already the eighth album of the Bernese musicians, was released.


Finally, the US-American rapper Macklemore comes back to Wallis and catches up with his gig that was postponed last year. With him he has his brand new album "Ben". The four-time Grammy winner has long proven as a headliner at the biggest festivals that he is almost unstoppable live. But for sure the masses will be hard to hold during his legendary overhits "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us".


Manillio is a Swiss rapper from the canton of Solothurn. So far, four albums have been released. With "Monbijou" he managed a super-floaty hit, enormously goovy and already today an evergreen.


The sister of pop star Bastian Baker is about to conquer Switzerland and is already considered the next big musical hope. Her emotional vocal potential convinces everyone. Her voice is seductive and vulnerable, childlike and perky, proud and soft at the same time.


Raised in Kassel and audibly inspired by Faber, Mayberg gained fame primarily through TikTok. He is becoming his own brand with trenchant lyrics that describe the emotional world of the mid-twenties with a lot of poetic wordplay. After an indoor support tour for Alligatoah, his debut album "Mini" was recently released.

Naomi Lareine

Naomi Lareine is known for her bittersweet, dulcet tones that perfectly match her sophisticated, R&B-tinged releases. Her brand new EP "Unchained" is a perfect example of how R&B can and should sound today: Her uniquely smooth melodies, coupled with powerfully led riffs and exquisite vocal control, set Naomi Lareine apart.

Nessa Barrett

Nessa Barret from New Jersey is an internet phenomenon, combining almost 20 million followers on all her channels. She is something of a tomboy who prefers oversized clothes, dabbles in a wide variety of genres and feels comfortable expressing darker truths. Last autumn saw the release of her acclaimed debut album, Young Forever. Nessa Barrett brings 'Gampel' exclusively to Switzerland for the first time!

Nina Chuba

Couple million streams? Check. On every hotlist in German rap? Anyway. 1Live awards? Check. Sold out concerts? You bet. Artsy and avant-garde, a bit savage, a bit average. With "Wildberry Lillet", Nina spent four solid weeks at number 1 in the German charts. Now there's double precious metal for the Hamburg native, with over 100 million streams and over 450,000 units sold.

Nova Twins

"Supernova" is the name of the second current album of the crazy and genre-spanning rock duo from London. The "Twins" received two Brit nominations this year in the categories Group of the year and Best Rock / Alternative Act.

Pat Burgener

Pat Burgener has two passions: snowboarder and musician. And he successfully serves both. In 2021, he was named Best Talent by SRF 3. "Starring at the sun" has meanwhile been streamed over 5 million times on Spotify.

Peter Fox

14 years ago, Seeed singer Peter Fox released his first and only album "Stadtaffe". The monkey shaved away everything and everyone back then. Hits like "Alles Neu", "Schwarz zu Blau" and "Haus am See" have also aged extremely well and still have enormous sex appeal today. This is mainly due to the organic sound that combines rap with pop and orchestral music. Now, completely out of the blue, "Future Pink" appeared, a brand new track in true Fox style.


Since their 2020 debut "Wir bauten uns Amerika", the Upper Swabian quartet has been on the road practically non-stop. They are a top live experience: there is dancing, jumping, crying, sweating, marveling and all that with an incredible chicken skin. On "Zorn & Liebe" Province expanded their ancestral sounds; but still the music lives from handmade instrumentation, from the unpolished directness of the lyrics and from the feverishly blaring vocals of frontman Vincent.

Russian Village Boys

The Russian Village Boys danced in their youth on the streets of St. Petersburg Jumpstyle and Hakkuh to tracks by Headhunterz, Paul Elstak and others. All trendy music from The Netherlands. Following the example of this music, the trio has been releasing happy and energetic hardbass, hardstyle and hardcore tracks since 2018.

Ska P

Ska-P from Madrid is one of Europe's most influential ska-punk bands since their formation in 1994. And the guys are on their farewell tour this year! Reason enough to bring the cult punkers once again to Switzerland.

Ski Aggu

Punchlines, technique, laidbackflow and entertaining, authentic West Berlin underground rap in perfection. Ski Aggu is simply awesome, at least since the internet hype "Party Sahne".

Stefanie Heinzmann & Friends XV

It has been 15 years since Stefanie Heinzmann's career got off to such a meteoric start. To date, six albums have been released; each of them was at least number 4 in the Swiss charts. The likeable Eyholzerin can call 15 international awards her own, including two Swiss Music Awards, an MTV European Music Award, a crown, a Comet or an Echo. Reason enough to celebrate her anniversary with a unique show in her home country. She has many national and international guests with her.

The Amazons

The Amazons created a real hype in their southern English homeland with their eponymous debut album in 2017, which even lifted them into the Top10 in Great Britain. Since then, four more albums have been released, the last one "How will I know if heaven will find me?" came out in 2022 and made it into the Top5 of the charts for the first time.

The Meseeks

Hailing from Brig, the three experienced ex-Allys Fate guys fabricate good 70's punk rock with guitar, bass and drums.


Before Germany's first Schlager rapper Tream embarks on his first Swiss solo tour in September 2023, he will make a detour to Gampel. He stands for the unmistakable, explosive and always danceable genre fusion of rap, pop, rock, electro and Schlager.

Years & Years

This is how dancy electropop sounds today: Olly Alexander of Years & Years is a true fashion and LGBTQI+ icon and has already worked with many of his idols such as Kylie Minogue, the Pet Shop Boys or Elton John. After a decade as a trio, the charismatic singer now continues his adventure with Years & Years as a solo project. The last number 1 album "Night call" was released in 2021, and he recently released "100% pure love", a cover version of the Crystal Waters classic from the 90s.

You Me At Six

YMAS is a British alternative rock band in the pop/punk genre. Their rocky-poppy emocore skillfully strengthens the band with screamo elements. So far, eight albums have been released, the latest album "Truth decay" was released in early 2023. In the United Kingdom, YMAS are a sure rock value: except for the debut album, all of them ended up in the Top5 of the official charts.
