Let The Music Speak!
Basel has been home to a music festival right in the heart of the city for the past six years - with the Kasernenhof being turned into an impressive concert arena for two whole days. Over the years, the Open Air Basel stage (until 2012 Viva con Agua & Kaserne Basel-Festival) has witnessed many national and international top acts, including Bonobo (UK), Maxïmo Park (UK), GusGus (IS), Little Dragon (UK), SOHN (UK), Wir sind Helden (DE), Beginner (DE), Who Made Who (DK). During the afternoons, free concerts ensure the perfect festival atmosphere and the field invites young and old alike to enjoy a lively and varied side programme. The charitable organisation Viva con Agua, which campaigns for «clean drinking water worldwide», has accompanied the festival from day one and raises donations through numerous fundraising activities. Sustainability is also a key ingredient in the delicious culinary offerings. Open Air Basel – let the music speak!
