Blue Balls Fest, 22/30 July, LZ

Quite a line up for this fest, I would probably check out Macy Gray, Joanna Newsom, Cocorosie, Heather Nova...Sounds like fun.

Re: Blue Balls Fest, 22/30 July, LZ

I thought it was rather cute...considering the chicky muzzak. Teaser.

But I agree, I would have chosen a different one.

Judging by the threads about dating and Swiss women, perhaps it's the best name for a swiss festival in Luzern.

KKL, Pavillion, Schweizerhof, Luzern.

I think it will be a proper summer lightheaded fun, I would have played there if I could

Re: Blue Balls Fest, 22/30 July, LZ

BTW, apart from the KKL and the Schweirzerhof all night party, Blue Balls is a free festival. Bands play for free at the Pavilion, oustide the schweizerhof, outside the KKL and I think the bar behind the back of KKL. There are also the usual festival stalls, with suprisingly good festival food to be had.

You may be hassled to buy a pin, it's not compuslory, but it will get you into the schweizerhof if you want to party all night, plus you get to support a great festival. 20chf for the pin for the duration of the festival is pretty damn reasonable.

All beer and drinks purchased at the festival require a deposit, you'll be given a jeton and have to remember to take your glasses back, bit annoying. I usualy just grab a bunch of beer cans from the bahnhof.

Re: Blue Balls Fest, 22/30 July, LZ

I saw the name and was expecting to read about a circuit party in Zurich.

Some bands from Friday, Trombone Shorty at the Pavilion, who were excellent.





And Jordans Drive at the schweizerhof.
