Paléo Festival Nyon

Switzerland / July 23 - 28, 2024


With 6 days, 6 nights, 300,000 festival-goers, 250+ concerts and shows, 7 stages and 150 stalls, Paléo Festival Nyon is the biggest open air festival in Switzerland.

Nestling between the Jura Mountains and Lake Geneva, halfway between the cities of Geneva and Lausanne, “the First Folk Festival” of 1976 has become one of Europe’s largest open-air musical events. Usually over six days, audiences totalling more than 300,000 come together for more than 250 concerts and shows in a celebration of Rock, Pop, Electro, Rap, French Chanson and many other genres. Both a springboard for young talents and a platform for headliners, Paléo has gradually opened up to all musical styles, as well as to circus and street arts.

It is also an extraordinary city for the public who visit it. Particular care is therefore taken in welcoming, decorating and choosing food and craft stands. We come here for the music of course, but also to immerse ourselves in unusual settings and atmospheres, to delight our taste buds with cuisines from all over the world, to meet up with friends and share a drink – in short, to experience the great collective thrill as well as the little pleasures of life! Festive and friendly, Paléo is an extraordinary place to live, where time goes by like nowhere else.

The Festival’s sense of social and ecological responsibilities was awarded some distinctions over the years: The Best Medium-Sized Festival Awards (2017) for the overall quality of the event, and twice the Health and Safety Innovation Award (2014, 2018), to recognize innovative measures in the field of hospitality and safety management.
