Festival Description

The festival is open to all bands, including a competition, workshops, and gala concerts by internationally recognized wind bands. Folk music is typical of the mountain region surrounding Saas-Fee—the entire village of Saas-Fee becomes a stage—bands perform outside a large number of restaurants in and around the village. As well as musical entertainment, food specialities from the region which have all but disappeared will be served. A big dance party will be held in the evenings at the festival hall. A few big names in folk music have been signed up for this event. The motto of the festival is, "Folk music for and by folk musicians".
