(Gypsy, Cumbia, World)
To counter the absurdity of everyday life by experiencing the exotic heights of the vagabond life! To be at home in the streets and wild bars, punk pulsating in the heart, two barrels of Balkan in the liver, walking gypsies in the veins y la Cumbia en el Alma. With guitars, cajón and accordion in their suitcases, the 6 siblings carry their music to new, unknown countries. In search of new stories, which they tell in melancholic Bern-deutsch or in modern Chanson-Française-style, mixed with impulsive Cumbia and Funànà rhythms, the Hermanos Perdidos follow their lost souls. Hasta la Rumba!
Extrafish, it's Balkan Dada Dub, it's Fake Ethno and World Fiction, an invented truth based on musical traditions that never existed. A crystal clear memory of a wild night in which everything turned and shone and sounded and sang and of which you don't really know anything anymore. Extrafish, it's four smiling faces, four pairs of nimble fingers, four respectable gentlemen named Andi Bissig, Valentin Baumgartner, Jonas Künzli and Adrian Böckli.
Four poachers in the land of eastern notes, Balkan sounds and bass music. Four strays who feel just as at home on dusty streets as in dark cellars and exuberant ballrooms. With them they have the songs of their upcoming second album called "Atlantis-Utopia-Fisch".
With the start of Okto Vulgaris in the beginning of 2016, the 4 young
musicians set their goal high. The “tube rock”, as the band calls it’s own
sound, is a rough female voice with cunning guitars and an earthy rhytm.
With the release of their debut EP “Tube One” in May 2017 the band
offered it's first small taster of 5 Songs. Along with the EP Release, the first
tour started and international gigs in Germany, Austria, Slowenia, Croatia
and Bosnia kept the musicians busy. Okto Vulgaris has already earned a
well reputation, supporting Bands like Stoned Jesus (UKR), Tides From
Nebula (PL), Ouzo Bazooka (ISR) and Wucan (De) so far. This year, the
Band's focus is on planning and recording the first entire album, to be
released in early 2019. Inbetween the band will go back on tour. Later this
Year, the Band will tour Austria and North Germany. Goal of the Oktos is to
play as the official support act of the legendary Foo Fighters. -“It might
sound a little crazy, but we think of it as possible!”-. And with their perfor- mance, the four musicians of Okto Vulgaris put their music in a nutshell:
Direct, Loud and Hungry!

Onimo immerses himself in world music to cultivate his own expression in French. Texts sung, chanted, puffed that hit, awaken, question... an invitation to a homecoming. With La Léon to the choirs and maracas, Gérald Pittet on trumpet, Onimo will present his last collection of songs, a guitar and a djeli ngoni in hand.
Red Queen - this name does not only stand for down-to-earth rock music, but also for intense live shows and a great party atmosphere. Since their founding in 2013, the band from the capital of Grisons has made a name for itself with performances on various stages in Switzerland and abroad. The five young men Lukas Guidali (vocals), Roman Zinsli (guitar), Marco Senti (guitar), Ralf Colocci (drums) and Robert Manetsch (bass) have always convinced the crowd with their professional presentation and musical virtuosity.
ci P-Enso, ambient acoustic music with Dudo, Franco and Stefano on acoustic guitars and electric bass, in collaboration with the artist painter Anna Lindnerová (Czech Republic) for the 'SATURDAY' participation.
THE ANTHRONAUTS are a fresh little big band hailing from Switzerland with roots all over Europe. Honoring the heritage of their musical idols like Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Tony Allen, Ebo Taylor and many more, the ten-piece collective delivers Afrobeat, Afro-Funk and High-Life. Cunning rhythms, grooves and melodies that linger on for days.
The Garciass is a Punk’n’Roll band, with an International mix of blood: El Salvador, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Italy and Switzerland, from Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Like their blood, the music is mixed and colorful. Their cultural diversity unleashes a variety of sounds that when placed together erupt into the raw, cracky, bouncy, wavy sound of The Garciass. Their Music cannot be placed onto a single style; their sound cannot be described with just one word. The Garciass are a molotov cocktail that makes people blow and move like their heart is about to explode as soon as the first melody is shaped on the stage.
The Band was created in March 2015 with the following line up: Antoine Garciass, Oss, Mike Felber, Giacomo Ulisse and Tobias Paul. Five characters from various corners of the world that found themselves in Frankfurt to create something unique. Their music is the testimony of internationalism turned into music.
Music unites people…
Alba is a band that was born in a bar in Valposchiavo in the summer of 2016 from the shared desire of two young people to compose in dialect. On the occasion of the first Openair Cavaglia 2017, the group was enriched by the new musical elements and personalities that joined it. As its name indicates, Alba (which means sunrise in Italian) is constantly being born, it moves, changes color and expands. At the moment it is composed of the voice of Lucrezia Albertini on piano, Marco Baumann on guitars, Mattia Nogler on drums, Jànosh Oberli on bass, Teseo Albertini and Benjamin Arner on trumpets. Our versatility in music pushes us to change in the style of composition, as well as in that of the performance, but in the foreground are the pleasure of expressing ourselves by singing in dialect and composing our melodies and that to keep meeting each other to spend time together.
