Description:
When international stars like Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart or P!nk come to Basel, the BALOISE SESSION is sure to be the reason. Each autumn, major stars make their way to this popular Swiss lifestyle-music festival, where they leave the festival audiences with concert memories they will never forget. Visitors are not only thrilled by the big stars, but also often by the many newcomers at the festival. With pop, rock, singer-songwriter, soul, funk, blues, jazz and world music, the richly diverse program offers a range of music styles that appeals to all of its approx. 20,000 visitors. Experience the unique club-like atmosphere of the music festival Baloise Session (formerly AVO SESSION Basel). Here you can get closer to the stars than at any other music event as you sit in the elegant ambiance of a music club with round tables and candlelight, only a few meters away from the musicians. No other music festival offers you so much intimacy with a capacity of only 1600 seats. From 2013, this music event will create its unforgettable memories in the new Event Hall - designed by Herzog & de Meuron- in the Congress Center Basel.
