NYON, SWITZERLAND – The Paleo Festival opens 17 July on the heels of the Montreux Jazz Festival, tying the knot on the Lake Geneva region’s non-stop approach to summer music. Paleo pulls some 200,000 fans to the Asse field at the top end of Nyon, but traffic in the area is helped hugely by the growing number of people who take the train. The CFF rain company is offering 20 percent off on round-trip train tickets for Nyon. The shuttle bus from the station to the festival is free of charge.
Extra trains are being put on between Nyon and Geneva, and Nyon and Lausanne-Montreux after 01:30, and an extra train will connect Nyon with Fribourg. Local buses will meet the trains in Geneva and Lausanne.
