GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – The Fête de la musique or World Music Day is a not-to-be missed musical extravaganza around Switzerland.
If you are new to Geneva and have never been to one the fetes around the world, let me tell you that it transforms the city into a gigantic amphitheater with a wide range of musical ensembles entertaining thousands of revelers.
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Finding something to do on Sundays in Geneva and surrounding areas seems to be the perennial conundrum for many expats (and a few locals too) who find the area a bit tame on the weekends. Allow me the pleasure then, to bring you a selection of some of the most fun and interesting activities in the Lake Geneva region, and beyond.
Just visit the Events page of GenevaLunch where I have posted an eclectic collection of what-to-do-on-Sundays, from antique fairs and flea markets to hiking and Nordic walking.
I hope you enjoy the list and happy Sunday everyone!
YVERDON-LES-BAINS, SWITZERLAND – Enter Sandman may be the best known heavy metal anthem in the world and now almost 21 years after its release it will be played live in Switzerland, courtesy of the itinerant one-day rock fest Sonisphere.
For the first time since the festival started touring Switzerland three years ago, it will stop in Suisse romande, at Yverdon-les-Bains.
The festival will be bringing along a litany of heavy metal / thrash revival from the 70s and 80s such as Slayer and Motörhead. The two groups along with Mastodon – a more recently formed heavy metal band from the US – will accompany the 2009 Rock’n'Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
This concert is an opportunity to see two of the so-called “big four” thrash metal bands of all time, Metallica and Slayer, in one place.
