SWISS MUSIC @ IKF 2020 − Review

26–29 January 2020, Freiburg (DE)

From 26 to 29 January 2020, the Swiss music scene made a second guest appearance at the Internationale Kulturbörse in Freiburg i.Br. under the banner SWISS MUSIC.

Ten agencies, musicians and other representatives from the Swiss music landscape were benefitting from FONDATION SUISA’s and Pro Helvetia’s offer of a free IKF registration by the stand SWISS MUSIC. Part of this offer was an individual listing in the IKF catalogue as well as in the stand documentation and on What is more, the stand provided the participants with meeting tables and promotion surface – in a nutshell: a «home base» within the hustle and bustle of the trade fair.

Les Petits Chanteurs à la Gueule de Bois, Elina Duni & Rob Luft, The TWO, Raphael Jost and – on short notice –Zarek Silberschmidt, five groups from Switzerland made it onto IKF’s showcase stage. As a special highlight, the duo Elina Duni & Rob Luft won this year’s «Freiburger Leiter» prize with their live performance.

Have a listen and a look back on
