The Paléo Festival in Nyon, Switzerland boasts an amazing variety of artists every year. Held in fields just above Nyon, it is the annual rock festival of the region. What started as a small and eclectic get-together by the lake in 1976, has become one of Europe’s leading open-air music festivals. Over 230,000 music lovers attended last year to watch performances on seven stages.
The festival lasts six days from 19 to 24 July, and the final main stage concert is preceded by a great firework display with music.
Muse, Iron Maiden, The Chemical Brothers, Michel Polnareff, Massive Attack, Louise Attaque, Bastille, Les Insus (ex-Téléphone), The Lumineers, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy, Francis Cabrel, Boys Noize, Ibrahim Maalouf, Louane will all be on the resolutely eclectic line-up of the 41st Paléo Festival Nyon. Offering an extremely rich musical panorama, the 2016 edition will oscillate between rock, electro, French chanson, hip-hop, reggae, trip-hop and groove. The Village du Monde, continuing its annual peregrinations, will be making a halt in the mysterious landscapes of the Celtic countries.
Tickets and passes will be on sale at midday on Wednesday 20 April (preferential tariffs available until 30.04). More information and points of sale on paleo.ch.
