Weekend by the edge of the Water...

The Festival Week-end au bord de l'eau "Weekend by the edge of the Water" unveils the complete program of its 17th edition from June 27th to June 30th, 2024!

The Foundation is a delightful blend of cultures featuring renowned and emerging artists, set in the unique and idyllic surroundings of Lake Géronde. The Festival is thrilled to welcome back the South Africans Goldfish, 13 years after their first appearance in Sierre, for two exclusive concerts. Also featured are the American artist Mose, based in Guatemala, known for his organic and soothing musical creations; Einmusik, renowned for his melodic techno productions; and the veterans Kraak & Smaak for an electro disco funk DJ set, a specialty of theirs.

The lineup is complemented by various favorites, which this year focus on female talent: Zoe Reijue, a Russian producer now based in Berlin, with her soft and melancholic deep house; Mary May, a Franco-Congolese artist whose universe blends Afrobeat, soul, and hip-hop; and Tami Hopf, a Brazilian artist residing in Vevey, whose drawings address the paradoxical relationship humans have with nature.

Special projects for this 17th edition include a special concert crafted by the Valaisan artist Loris Mittaz accompanied by future talents from the region (Mia Oud, Julie & Charlotte, Joyce), a workshop on floating lanterns that will illuminate the lake at dusk, and the closing concert on Sunday, always highly anticipated: a 360° percussion show under the circus tent by Nadav Dagon.

Visual arts are also honored with a palette of talented artists in the fields of street art and video, as well as a plethora of activities for both children and adults offered each afternoon.

Tickets are available online with passes at 89.- CHF (free for under 18s), offering access to the 4-day festival in the majestic setting of Lake Géronde, in the heart of the Valais Alps.
