WHAT’S THAT ?

A platform for the promotion of artists

A contest

A reward ceremony

Swiss Live Talents takes place every 2 years and aims to promote emerging Swiss artists, both nationally and internationally. The first two editions have been sufficient to establish the event as the leading springboard of Swiss live music.

An important network of partnerships links « Swiss Live Talents » with big and famous festivals such as Sziget in Hungary, Mondo NYC in New York, Exit Festival in Serbia, Electric PicNic in Ireland, ILMC in London and many more.

A nomination or award in a « Swiss Live Talents » category, is more than just a prize, as it brings many opportunities to perform in the most important clubs and festivals, both in Switzerland and abroad.

For this purpose, a panel of club- and festival- programmers from all over Switzerland will select five nominees per category. The nominated artists will be invited to perform on stage as part of the very first « Swiss Live Talents – Music Marathon », a unique event that will take place in Berne on November 17 and 18, 2017 and a great opportunity to be seen, heard and discovered by an international jury.
