The Summer solstice isn’t usually something you’d expect to celebrate, but here in Geneva, we do things a little differently. Every year on the solstice weekend, the city transforms into one big party as we take to the streets for a special series of concerts.
The 2019 Fête de la Musique is one of the biggest events in the calendar in this part of the world, and for anyone staying with us while it happens, it is one of the unique ways you’ll be able to take in the sights and sounds of our magical city.
For anyone staying with us during the Fête or looking for more information, we have it all here.
