Baloise Session

Where The Magic Happens!

The Baloise Session – a boutique music festival of a special kind. As an audience member, you sit with us in an exclusive feel-good ambience, at a candlelit club table, just like in the formerly legendary New York music clubs. And all this in the smallest capacity, with sensual intimacy and intoxicatingly close to the music stars from all over the world. You will experience musical highlights with a different mix per concert evening from the genres rock, pop, soul, jazz, world, blues, singer-songwriter and much more.

We can't wait to welcome you back from 17 October to 8 November 2024.

Subscribe directly to our newsletter here so that you don't miss when we start the advance sale and which top music stars will transform the Baloise Session into the «Musical Place To Be».

See you soon!

Seit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten begeistert und verzaubert uns die Baloise Session. Dies spricht für sich!

Clemens Markstein | CEO Schweiz, Baloise
Daniel Heller, Inhaber amrein+heller MarktforschungsTreuhand AG

The ability to get close to the stars and the opportunity to offer my clients a special experience in a laid-back atmosphere fascinates me year after year.

Daniel Heller, owner of amrein+heller MarktforschungsTreuhand AG

An excellent format: I’ve been coming now for almost 20 years. A Basel cultural asset, and more.

Daniel Hofer | member of the audience
Donavon Frankenreiter at BALOISE SESSION 2016

It was one of the most amazing things to be a part off. Such an amazing festival, beautiful building, amazing crowd.

Donavon Frankenreiter | Singer-Songwriter

A must-go! The intimate setting of the Baloise Session makes it a pure joy for the artist.
