Events – The Liberation Gig Recommendation for Switzerland!


Looking at what’s happening in the indie rock in Switzerland after looking at what’s happening in the Swinging London is rather depressing but we actually found a couple of good surprises.

Geneva confirms itself as the black hole, the most depressing place in Switzerland if you like live rock with very few concerts in the next 6 months, Zurich is rather the place to be! Many interesting bands will be performing on the Limmat shores and the end of winter-Spring period is going to be hot if you like Indie Rock!

Why can’t a Komplex 457 exists this side of the “roestigraben” as well?

While we wait for this dream to come true the closest thing we get to rock is the Caprices Festival in Crans Montana, Valais. The line-up this is year is MEGA and this is our selection:

  • March 8th – Pete Doherty
  • March 9th – Fatboy Slim
  • March 12th – Portishead
  • March 13th – The Killers/2many DJs
  • March 14th – The Kills/Black Rebel Motorocycle Club
