Everything was great. Incredible crowd here. I have never played in that sort of set up before. It’s amazing. It’s a nice different vibe than any other gig we’ve been able to do. I really enjoyed it.

Lewis Capaldi

It was such a magical experience. I just felt safe and comfortable, and I felt like I was being listend to. And that is such a lovely thing as a performer.

Jessie J

I had the best time playing Baloise Session. I felt so truly honoured. Walking down the corridor and seeing all the great people who I am a massive fan of everyone who has played here.

Freya Ridings

I had a wonderful time. The stage, the sound, everything is great. The audience were immediately on their feet, reponsive.

It was lovely. It was wonderful. The crowd was really sweet. They had a great energy. Honestly it's just an honour to be in some place where you guys really appreciate music and art.

It is a great festival because, like I say, you can just display your whole library of music, you know.

Sarah Connor at BALOISE SESSION 2015

It was great! It was very special both for myself and for my band. They are all very well-known musicians, yet today we were filled with awe and respect for this stage on which so many brilliant legends have played before us.
