a unique music festival

Experience the unique club-like atmosphere of the Baloise Session music festival (formerly known as Avo Session), where you can get closer to the stars than at any other music event. Seated in the elegant club-like setting at round, candlelit tables, you will be just a few metres away from the stage. No other music festival offers you such an intimate experience.

The festival will create more unforgettable memories in the Event Hall of the Basel Fair, which was designed by Herzog & de Meuron.

The Baloise Session Team and our presenting sponsor «Baloise Insurance» are looking forward to welcoming you as our guests at the Baloise Session from 23 October to 10 November 2021.


Baloise Session @home

Unfortunately, the lights of the Baloise Session stage in the Event Hall have to remain off this year. But thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Basler Versicherungen, once a month we can present you with the finest live music in our virtual concert hall. more...
