Zermatt Unplugged confirms last act


The line-up for the seventh edition of Europe's biggest acoustic festival is now complete. The British superstar James Arthur will be the main act performing on the Marquee Stage on Saturday. Advance ticket sales have begun.

The Zermatt Unplugged Festival provides its audience with a unique musical experience set against a breath-taking backdrop. Once again, international, stars, newcomers and Swiss musicians will rub shoulders at the foot of the Matterhorn, performing on small stages in an intimate atmosphere.

New Talents
What makes the festival a truly special event are not only the well-known names, but also the unknown ones, the “new talents”, the stars of tomorrow. All “New Talents” concerts are free. The seventh Zermatt Unplugged festival features twelve new talents.
