Seeed, Chemical Brothers, Erykah Badu, Black Eyed Peas & Megan Thee Stallion headline Gurtenfestival 2022!

Gurtenfestival is back: Together with over 40 confirmed acts for Festival 22!

For the last two years it has been relatively quiet on Bern’s local mountain in mid-July. The reasons are obvious, or rather, unfortunately, mostly at the top of your lungs.

Those who still have the programme from 2020, which never took place, somewhere in the back of their minds will encounter one or two familiar names. Headliners include crowd favourites SEEED, show giants THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS, neo-soul queen ERYKAH BADU, chart-toppers BLACK EYED PEAS and one of the brightest stars in American rap and pop business today, MEGAN THEE STALLION.

Dubbed the most influential Brazilian by FORBES, singer ANITTA, with trillions of streams and her own Netflix series, is guaranteed to give the güsche a run for its money. The trend-setting, Mercury Prize-winning ARLO PARKS, rap shooting star JACK HARLOW, hardcore punkers TURNSTILE and the Corona club-hitters SHOUSE are of course not to be missed on the Hausberg.

JAMIE XX will provide “good times” and ZOE WEES and JOYA MARLEEN will ensure heartfelt sing-along moments.

SKEPTA will provide the turn-up, PARCELS will conjure up electronic disco-soul moments and BALTHAZAR will ensure the perfect summer evening with their touching earworms.

STEREO LUCHS WILL SING “ÄNDLECH WIDR DUSSE, ÄNDLECH WIDR HEISS”, KINGS ELLIOT will enchant with their wonderfully intense songs, DANITSA will invite you to the party, and DINO BRANDÃO will perform his rebellious pop collages. From the neighbouring country to the north, the rap-punk rockers KRAFTKLUB, the rapper JUJU and the newcomer SCHMYT, who is actually not new at all, will travel to the festival.

Other highlights will certainly include the French-Cuban sister duo IBEYI, la brise française POLO & PAN, the four women with perhaps the best party music in the world – LOS BITCHOS, as well as folk-rock musician KEVIN MORBY.

The Afrobeat jazz combo from London KOKOROKO, the Italian music duo NU GENEA with live band, the rising star AYRA STARR and the experimental Maastricht band YĪN YĪN will provide the long-missed festival vibe. The Waldbühne contest winners TSHANDA and M’GHADI can’t be missed in 2022 either!
