Before we headed off to London, for our three week stay at the House of Switzerland, we were accompanied by two MINI’s and a took a pit-stop in six Swiss cities – Lugano, Basel, Chur, Montreux, Zurich and Bern – to present unplugged concert sessions from well known local bands.

Which band is going to join us in London?
The Swiss Radio Tour is not only intended to illustrate the journey of the Swiss acoustic torch through its homeland; the tour is also a contest to find the winning band/artist. Our jury will select the best band out of a total of 16 who best represents the Swiss Olympic acoustic spirit and will be flown to London in order to perform on the main stage at the House of Switzerland on the 12th August. The Swiss Radio Tour is open to all to enjoy at no cost. So come on down and support your local bands!
