Tickets now on sale for UNLTD’S 2024 summer programme — a feast for the ears

March 1, 2024 — VERBIER (Switzerland) — Ticket sales to the 2024 summer edition of UNLTD — the Verbier Festival’s creative laboratory — are now open to the public.

More than 7,000 spectators, from toddlers to grandparents, attended UNLTD events in summer 2023.

“Our goal is to celebrate music of all kinds while complementing the extraordinary offer of the Verbier Festival each summer,” says UNLTD Director and Director of the Verbier Festival Academy, Stephen McHolm. “There’s a great synergy between Verbier’s youthful energy and that of UNLTD — together we’re making classical cool!”

2023 highlights

This ‘cool vibe’ was perhaps best experienced in the UNLTD Concert Club at Verbier’s Taratata restaurant last summer, where intimate cabaret performances of classical, electronic, jazz and experimental music were presented late-night to a sold-out room throughout the Festival.

The inaugural UNLTD hoplà open-air concert on the mountain meadow of La Chaux was also a highlight, attracting an audience of more than 1,000 spectators of all ages for a free afternoon of music high above Verbier, where Vivaldi’s Four Seasons were presented on equal footing to singer-songwriter and funk acts.

2024 edition

UNLTD returns this summer with its Concert Club, hoplà afternoon, popular music and nature discovery workshops and hikes for both children and adults activities, as well as a its ideaLAB series of interviews and talks that this year will feature two panel discussions, one on music’s power to heal and another on how performers, athletes and everyday people can excel under pressure. Buskers will again fill the streets of Verbier with music each weekend.
