This year's Zermatt Unplugged Festival will welcome big acts like James Bay, Ellie Goulding and Rea Garvey. Over the course of five days, 58 artists, including 20 new acts, will perform on a total of 18 different stages against a fantastic mountain backdrop. The Riffelhaus, the Stafelalp and the Hotel Beausite are new locations.

Zermatt Unplugged is about music, enjoyment and hospitality – a festival for all the senses. At the heart of the festival, the Taste Village will provide a diverse (and above all delicious) range of food and drinks: from regional meat specialities to traditional Valais raclette and plant-based burgers. The Wine Lounge in the foyer tent is also a new addition.

Unplugged Pass holders can look forward to accessing all Unplugged Pass stages, late night jazz and DJ sounds until the early hours of the morning. They can also access the Taste Village, all side stages and side events, as well as the after parties. The concerts at the Vernissage are also included.
