Paléo Festival Nyon

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Nyon's annual music festival is one of the most established in Switzerland's summer calendar.
What started as a modest folk festival in 1976 has now become one of Switzerland’s most established music festivals, drawing big name stars to the 84-hectare grassy (or muddy, depending on the weather) site above Nyon to play to 230,000 spectators across the week. The festival's seven stages welcome both up-and-coming artists and long-established legends, along with street performers and circus acts.
Bands announced for the 2017 Paleo Festival so far include Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Arcade Fire, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Jamiroquai, Imany and Christopher Maé.
Like any open-air festival, it's possible to camp on site with a multi-day ticket, or buy a day pass only.
