The Greenfield Festival starts on Thursday in the Bernese Oberland.

All festival goers will be searched and big bags will be banned.

There has also been talk of positioning snipers at events this year. This seemingly extreme measure was reported by the German language Blick newspaper, citing unnamed sources.

The Rock am Ring festival in Germany was evacuated on Friday night due to a security scare.
