More information

Come to the Heirassa Festival in Weggis and enjoy four glorious days in the presence of the most popular Swiss folk musicians. See more than 40 high-calibre ensembles playing over 100 hours of folk music across 16 venues.

The Swiss musicians Carlo Brunner and Willi Valotti are responsible for the programme.

The 19th Heirassa Festival will take place from Thursday, June 6, 2024 to Sunday, June 9, 2024 in Weggis. The focus is on Alois Schilliger (1924 to 2004), who would have been 100 years old this year. The Weggis native was one of the greatest Swiss folk musicians. In 1954, he composed his famous "Heirassa-Polka", a Rhineland polka. In 1959, together with Walter Grob (accordion) and Kaspar Muther (clarinet and saxophone), he founded the folk band Heirassa, which thus had a house title.
