Gstaad New Year Music Festival

This year the festival again celebrates Beethoven at the end of the Beethoven 2020 international anniversary events, after pianist and artistic director Caroline Haffner took part in the Beethoven Pastoral Project.

Starting on Saturday 26 December 2020, the festival will have daily concerts and events in and around the Swiss Alp resorts of Gstaad, Rougemont and Lauenen. It continues daily until Sunday 3 January 2020 with a Gala Finale at the Gstaad Yacht Club – and for the first time Festival “Off” follows the main festival on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 January 2021 as part of the official celebrations for the centenary of Italian film director Federico Fellini and his collaboration with composer Nino Rota.

Each year, the festival produces a printed programme distributed by the region’s tourist offices and given to members of the audience.

We look forward to welcoming you again in Gstaad –
