Cancellation of the 28th edition of the Baleinev Festival


Coronavirus has struck again in Switzerland on the event side...

It is with great regret that we announce the cancellation of the 28th edition of the Baleinev Festival, which was to take place on Friday, April 24th.

The latest health measures announced by the Federal Council mean that events and gatherings will now be banned until at least 19 April. The committee has tried to find ways to maintain or postpone the 2020 edition. Nevertheless, in view of the responsibility to protect the health of our public, our artists, our volunteers and their entourage, it is preferable to cancel the festivities completely.

In case you have already purchased your pre-hire online, it will be automatically refunded by our Petzi box office ( We ask you to contact them directly if you have any questions or problems (

We would also like to thank all our sponsors and partners, our artists, volunteers and festival-goers for their support and trust. The Baleinev Festival will get back on its feet very soon in order to offer a 2021 edition in its best shape.

PS : Follow us again on the social networks, there might be a surprise between now and this summer if our favorite Corona wants it.
