Radar – Festival For New Music  


Finally Switzerland has its own festival for newcomers! For the first time, the Radar festival will be taking place, in the city center of Zurich. Just like at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton, you’ll be able to discover new talents, before they get super famous and hit the big stages. So if you like checking out new bands and singers and love small intimate locations, this is the perfect festival for you.

I personally love discovering new singers… Acts that barely anyone else knows but who still have that certain spark, that special tone or vibe. These showcase-festivals are therefore great for people like me. The Great Escape festival in Brighton has always been on my radar and bucketlist, unfortunately this is another year where I can’t cross it off the list. Even more reason to really look forward to having this new festival right in my backyard. Very proud and happy that something similar to TGE is happening here at Radar Festival !
