Welcome

The sounds of the Baloise Session 2023 have fallen silent, but we keep on singing them. Our Hearts are on Fire! We are still in thrall to the music:

★ We sang «Bang Bang into the room» with Jessie J,

★ felt «perfect» with Freya Ridings,

★ experienced «Super Duper Love» with Joss Stone,

★ chanted «Reggae Rules» with UB40 and Gentleman,

★ reveled in «Sweet Dreams» with Eurythmics Songbook featuring Dave Stewart,

★ and rocked to the «Mighty Guitars» of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Richard Hawley.

We applaud our

★ 20 fantastic acts,

★ 15,500 contented visitors,

★ 220 hard-working helpers,

★ and our local sponsors, benefactors and partners.

In 2024, the Baloise Session will take place from 17 October to 14 November. Booking is starting.

We are looking forward to the collaboration.

Musical greetings

Beatrice Stirnimann and the Baloise Session team
