Some of the line-ups are so huge that of course we couldn’t list all of them. But that’s where the links come in – you can go check for yourself if there’s anyone on the list you like. Our highlight must be the legendary Stevie Wonder in Montreux, but also Kensington in Berne, whom we already had the chance to interview not too long ago! More highlights are Paolo Nutini, Jamie Cullum, Sunrise Avenue, Rita Ora and of course the Backstreet Boys 🙂
