One thing is clear: Unplugged is part of Zermatt. Visitors, artists, the destination and the organisers had this confirmed with its first musical summer edition – and at all altitudes. The Zermatt Unplugged Summer Weekends took place over two weekends in July; despite a reduced programme, the concert series was packed with all the emotion and joy of live music.
The 13th edition of the Festival edition in April 2022 will be similar in content and concept to the April 2020 event that was cancelled at short notice due to the pandemic.
Close & real.
Zermatt Unplugged – where you switch off to recharge. Where the music plays – over 5 days, on 17 stages and at over 100 concerts, unamplified and real. Where it's rare for audience and artists to be this close – connected by the music and connected with nature. With concerts outside and a backdrop of breath-taking scenery – sometimes on top of the mountain, sometimes in the heart the village.
Good food is also part of the deal. Where local gastronomy meets warm hospitality, good taste is on the menu. Swiss tradition and international lifestyle are the perfect mix for Alpine enjoyment in and in front of this beautiful festival setting.
The festival programme will be announced in December. Information on the programme and ticket sales will be posted on the Zermatt Unplugged website in due course (https://zermatt-unplugged.ch/en).
The organisers are also in discussions with the federal government and canton officials and will provide information on the protection regulations that apply on its festival channels.
