The Blue Balls Festival 15 has been a great success.
The last artist on the main stage, Swiss singer Sophie Hunger, made it clear with her impressive performance that she effortlessly holds her own in the international music scene.
James Bay, Damien Rice, Söhne Mannheims, Mando Diao, Melody Gardot, Jamie Cullum and many others thrilled their audiences, which showed up in droves at KKL Lucerne. And shows by artists such as Benjamin Clementine, Nick Mulvey, Rhodes, Gary Clark Jr. or James Vincent McMorrow demonstrated that the Festival is also a fabulous showcase for up-and-coming talent.
Which isn’t to say that there wasn’t a great deal to discover on the other stages too. Take Lo&Leduc, for example, who filled the pavilion area to capacity in no time, and then managed the feat of keeping things nicely cool and mellow with their fantastic show.
The Blue Balls Festival, a true multicultural music and arts festival, provided a stage for a wide variety of creative undertakings: photography, art, video, film, music, of course, and not least of all a daily talk show which brought all of the Festival’s artists together.
Far more than 100,000 visitors flocked to the Festival’s premises on the shores of Lake Lucerne and enjoyed the beautiful, one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
