Programme 2021

No Baloise Session in 2020 – see you in 2021!

The DNA of the Baloise Session: Outstanding international artists performing in a unique, intimate club-like setting. Unfortunately we can´t offer that this year, as the artists are unable to go on tour due to the corona virus. They can´t give any binding commitments for appearances in Basel. At the same time, we see no way of guaranteeing the full protection of all visitors and employees against infection. Added to this, the corona pandemic has made it impossible to plan with any assurance. However, it is our cultural duty to ensure the future of our 35-year-old music festival beyond this crisis year. Consequently, we regret to announce that we are obliged to postpone the 35th Baloise Session until the autumn of 2021 (23 October to 10 November).
