The Federal Folk Music Festival
The Federal Folk Music Festival, every four years
The Federal Folk Music Festival takes place only every four years. Its first edition took place in 1971 in Sargans. Four years ago, this traditional national event was held in Aarau in the canton of Aargau, with a record participation of over 100, 000 spectators.
The Federal Folk Music Festival is the key event for the Swiss Folk Music Association (ASMP), which aims to promote traditional and new music, and support folk musicians.
A festival badge for the Federal Folk Music Festival will be available for sale from spring on. It will cost CHF 15.- for one day or CHF 50.- for all four days. The badge includes free entrance to the festival site and music venues. In addition, the festival badge also allows spectators to use services such as the use of public transport between Sierre and Crans-Montana.
