Oooh Goody! Rundfunk is back in Zurich this summer

I just got an email confirming that Rundfunk is back this summer at Landesmuseum, Zurich between 7th of August and 5th September.

It's been absent over the past two years due to renovations.

Essentially it's a temporary summer radio station where loads of different style DJs play live from the courtyard of Landesmuseum.

It's free and extremely popular. Rundfunk is the only buzzing evening place in the summer away from the lake / river scene.

It also has the biggest glitter ball I've ever seen, hanging over the centre.

DJs are varied. Most is dance music but of all kinds of styles.

See you there,
Higgy Baby

Frankly spoken never heard about it. But may have to get informed. "Rundfunk" is an expression reminding me of early schooltimes in the 1950ies, when listening to radio in Zurich was easiest when being connected by phone-cable to the "Telephon-Rundspruch" and the radio station in German speaking countries were "Rundfunk" like ORF (Oesterreichischer Rundfunk) and when one of the better stations was RIAS (Radio Im Amerikanischen Sektor) in Berlin, etc. In times when TV was a matter for a few "affluent" people but most people were on newspapers and radio. So that "Rundfunk" to me has the sound of "old-wordliness"

Re: Oooh Goody! Rundfunk is back in Zurich this summer

Not only is RUNDFUNK.FM back at the Landesmuseum this Friday August 7th, it is their 10 year anniversary!
Rundfunk.fm has changed this year and will be advertising-free - no interruptions, only excellent music. To run a radio station costs a good deal of money, so they are counting completely on our support. You can donate on www.rundfunk.fm
20% of your contribution will be donated by Rundfunk.fm for charitable purposes.
If you can't make it down to the Landesmuseum you can listen online or on your FM radio - 104.1 in Zürich North and 96.9 in Zürich South.

Re: Oooh Goody! Rundfunk is back in Zurich this summer

Was at Rundfunk yesterday for the first time. Loved it!
Really nice setting, loads of cool people, good music in the tent and best of all no entry fee!

Only downsides were the pricey drinks and that it finished between 11-12.
But then again it probably saved me from the mother of all hangovers on a weekday.

Was there on Saturday. Really nice. And had some coconut slices, almost in the same way we had them in the 1960ies on the Toscana coast.

Really nice Buzz.

What I describe as "ambiance + decor" is really excellent. I liked the crowd around. And if it pleases "active dancers" as it does "non-dancers" like me, it is a good thing.

Re: Oooh Goody! Rundfunk is back in Zurich this summer

I'm here at the moment, completley by accident. Searching on Goigle to try to work out what was going on, I came across this post.

Seems to be pretty much as said already - good banging music, nice decor, 'beautiful'and normal people. Food prices seem normal/good, have yet to check drink prices (trying to be good and not tempt myself).

No sign of EF'ers, and I might be a good boy anyway and go home as I'm on my own and like most people, have work tomorrow.

Re: Oooh Goody! Rundfunk is back in Zurich this summer

As Rundfunk is now finished, I would like to highlight another temporary radio station: International Radio Festival - for some diversity for another few days only, unfortunately..

Enjoy!

I didn't make it either this year - which really is a shame, it's quite laid back with a beautiful background in the Landesmuseum... hope they'll be back next year again..
