Zermatt Unplugged Music Festival: April 14-18th 2015
Mountain Exposure is proud to have been involved again with the 2015 Zermatt Unplugged festival this April. Past acts have featured Katie Melua, Seal, Lionel Richie, Billy Idol, Susanne Vega and Lauryn Hill among others. It combines great music with superb skiing and is the most civilized of music festivals. The main acts perform every evening in an atmospheric 3,000 seater marquee set in the middle of the village; there are nine other venues both in the village and on the ski slopes. With a total of 54 concerts - and more than 20 are free - there is a show for every musical taste. The 2015 festival will run from April 14th to 18th. We will post the line-up as soon as it is announced.
