Created by Fayabash in 2006, Electrosanne is now an institution on the small-but-impressive Swiss festival scene. Since its inception the festival has become one of the biggest events of its kind in the region, and the jewel on Lausanne’s cultural calendar, a firm end-of-summer fixture in the beautiful city. Over four days, the city of Lausanne (the fourth biggest city in Switzerland and the city with the largest student population) throbs to the sound of electronic music coming from two outdoor stages set up in the centre of the city and 4 partner clubs (D! Club, Le Romandie, La Ruche and Le Bourg). Electrosanne attracts a number of big names from all four corners of the globe to get an ever-increasing number of attendees up and dancing. 40,000 people attended in 2012, amounting to almost a third of the city's regular population! What makes Electrosanne special is the way in which it appeals to such a broad and enthusiastic audience with its programme of leading-edge but still accessible events, covering all styles of electronic music from deep house to dubstep, and including techno, hip-hop and disco along the way.
The eighth festival will take place from 4 to 7 September 2014. Almost 80 Swiss and international artists will take part over four days and two nights. The two outdoor stages will play host to the daytime event "Electrosanne de jour", while "Electrosanne de nuit" will take place in the six partner clubs. This means you can go to DJ sets and concerts each day from the start of the afternoon till the early hours of the morning!
