Previous artists

PALP is an innovative festival that takes place from May to September in various different locations. These range from private apartments to historical castles, from a Roman amphitheatre to public gardens, from cultural spaces to the most remote mountain pastures, from villages to the city centres across Valais. PALP Festival has been for the past 10 years the promise of unique and original creations where music, local produce, nature and performing arts are in the spotlight.
