At the start of the anniversary SnowpenAir 2017, pure Swiss rock power awaited the audience. Many of the 9,000 concertgoers arrived early. By the time of Marc Amacher's dazzling performance, there was no holding back any longer. The newcomer from "The Voice of Germany" enthralled the audience together with his blues duo "CHUBBY BUDDY".
In glorious sunshine, Switzerland's most successful band Gotthard rocked the highest open-air stage in the snow. They played their well-known hits as well as songs from their new album "Silver". Gotthard were there at the birth of SnowpenAir in 1998. Now they were celebrating the 20th year of the legendary OpenAir concert at the foot of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. For Gotthard, 2017 is also their 25th anniversary.
Since last playing in 2014, Gölä made his comeback as co-headliner at SnowpenAir. He thrilled the audience with his dialect hits at Kleine Scheidegg. The fans sang along at the tops of their voices to songs like "Indianer" and "Uf u dervo".
The Bernese band Juraya, with its lead singer from Interlaken, made its début at an open air concert in the snow.
