Lugano: the national music capital. Two evenings and three stages showing the liveliest and most surprising side of the Swiss music scene.


A new event open to all of Switzerland has evolved from the experience of 25 editions of Palco ai Giovani! A vibrant turnover of styles and genres on several stages along the city lakefront, which is closed to traffic for the occasion.

The focus will be on the contemporary Swiss music scene with the idea of developing a creative environment within the music scene by promoting exchange between the different language regions.

In two days of free open-air concerts, with a short-list of 18 Swiss artists, three stages on the lake shore, and an international and a home-grown headliner, La Quairmesse is expected to become the new crossroads of the Swiss music scene.
