Zurich OpenAir puts the ‘f’ into festival, with its camping field quality and line-up of musicians ranging from newcomers to established stars.
Zurich OpenAir is a straight-up festival in a field – think 3,000 tents in a 95,000 square metre patch near the airport. It may not have the renown of welly-donning affairs like British Glastonbury, but its line-up of indie, electronic and rock musicians is always enviable.
This year, Zurich OpenAir boasts a great line-up of national and international bands. Headliners include electro superstars the Chemical Brothers, trip-hoppers Massive Attack, Icelandic post-rock outfit Sigur Rós and Scottish songstress Amy Macdonald.
