The Seaside Festival on the lakeside

Mid Morning Mix // Events// Explore Switzerland// Entertainment // Aug. 11, 2017

 

This year is the inauguration of a brand new music festival welcoming big names.

Emili Sandé, Status Quo, Manfred Mann's Earth Band and The Hooters are just a few of the bands at the 2-day festival in Spiez on the edge of Lake Thun.

Actually, the festival was created especially to attract big bands to Switzerland, as Philippe Cornu, who set it up, explains to WRS.

And of course, we asked the question; 'why is it called the Seaside Festival when it's on a lake?' It turns out we're not the first people to ask. Here, knowing a little bit of German goes a long way. We also think it's pretty catchy!

Seaside Festival takes place August 25th and 26th, 2017
