On of the highlights of Lucerne! Jul 25, 2011
An amazing festival (outdoor/indoor) in front of the wonderful lake Lucerne with plenty of great local and international artists. A must visit event in July/August! There are shows without entrance fees and some for which you have to purchase tickets.

BLUE BALLS FESTIVAL... one of the greatest Open-Air Festival around the Lake of Lucerne (every Summer for 9 days) Jul 10, 2008
What took place for the first time in the evening of September 19, 1992 with an audience of 300 on the old steamboat "Stadt Luzern", became one of the largest music festival in the German-speaking part of Switzerland with approximately 100,000 visitors over nine days. The incredible ambience around Lake Lucerne with the Open-Air Pavilion, the Culture and Convention Center Lucerne and The Club in the Schweizerhof Hotel is what makes the Blue Balls Festival unique. The festival presents a total of 100 shows, with top-notch international Blues, Jazz, Soul, Funk, World Music, Rock, and Pop acts as well as exclusive exhibitions of renowned photographers from the world of music. Featured photographers in the past years were Danny Clinch, Gered Mankowitz, Michel Comte, Isabel Snyder, Mick Rock and Gavin Evans.

All Festival venues, i.e. KKL, the pavilion and the Schweizerhof Hotel, as well as Lucerne Main Station and public parking facilities are located on the Lucerne lakeshore and within five minutes walking distance from one another.
