Following the cancellation of the 2020 edition and a resized 2021 edition, the flagship event organised by the City of Geneva is making its big come-back from 24 to 26 June 2022, taking over the area between Place de Neuve, les Bastions and the old town with 30 stages hosting 555 concerts, workshops and dance shows. An amazing three-day festival heralding in the summer season.
- Friday: 7 p.m. – 2 a.m. (end of the concerts at 1 a.m.)
- Saturday: 10 a.m. – 2 a.m. (end of the concerts at 1 a.m.)
- Sunday: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. (end of the concerts at 9 p.m.)
Stages and stands
The area dedicated to this year’s edition of the Fête de la musique returns to its familiar outlines, incorporating Victoria Hall, Place de Neuve, Parc des Bastions, la Treille and the old town as far as the Observatory and the Promenade du Pin.
Some stages and venues will host events across three days, while others will only host a few concerts or shows. However, they all offer free access and are open to all.
It should he noted that the Geneva Conservatory of Music and the courtyard of the Hôtel de Ville will once again play a part in the festival after several years of work. And two new venues will join the fun: the Maison Rousseau et Littérature and the Manège en Ville.
In total, this edition will boast thirty stages, with 13 indoors and 17 in the open air – including courtyards, parks and promenades.
The food stands
The “Village des Associations” boasts 27 stands – scattered across the entire area hosting the Fête de la musique – run by non-profit associations. The profits made by these associations are donated in full to cultural, educational, environmental, humanitarian, social or sporting initiatives.
The detailed list of stages and stands as well as a map available for download can be found on the website of the Fête de la musique - rubrique Infos pratiques.
People with reduced mobility are advised to obtain more information in advance. The open-air stages are often grassy areas accessible by paved or asphalted paths which may be difficult to negotiate for wheelchairs. Access is possible, but may in some cases require assistance.
