Snow, sun and a sold out concert arena

On Saturday, 7 April 2018, 9,500 visitors travelled to SnowpenAir. The concert at Kleine Scheidegg was completely sold out. The British singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald enthused the audience with some brilliant pop and rock music.

From Bernese dialect rock, Brazilian inspired sounds of soul to distinctive pop and rock songs, this concentrated music mix provided great excitement at the 21st SnowpenAir at 2,000 metres above sea level. With radiant sunshine, Marc Sway entranced the audience, which had arrived early, with his unmistakable and soulful voice. Trauffer spoilt the fans with Bernese dialect rock, a combination of the traditional and the modern. After her premier in 2010, Scotland's Amy Macdonald, an international multiple award-winning songwriter, returned to the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau stage as the headline act. She presented her new album entitled “Under Stars”. The arena at Kleine Scheidegg was completely sold out with 9,500 visitors.  

In addition to a top international act and Swiss stars, the local artist Rapper Julian again ensured a brilliant kick-off to the highest open air concert in the snow. Known to many as MC Juli, he played Interlaken songs from his new dialect rap album “Verrisse”.

Demanded after-party and perfect pistes
From 17 h, the first after-party in SnowpenAir history will be in full swing. After the appearance of Amy Macdonald, star guest Daniel Kandlbauer enticed a great many concert-goers to the additional stage in the area for the closing ceremony.

The SnowpenAir fans who had arrived with skis were also able to take advantage of the excellent slope conditions thanks to the snow throughout Easter. The Kleine Scheidegg ski area, including the pistes towards Grindelwald and Wengen, is open until Sunday, 15 April.
