Opening of "The Alex" at Zermatt Unplugged
The popular festival "Zermatt Unplugged" will be held for the seventh time from 8th to 12th April 2014. Stars from around the world will once again take part in the festival and show off their talent during "unplugged"concerts on the stages of Zermatt. This year's event will see the inauguration of "The Alex" - the new and spectacular stage at Hotel Alex!
This new concert venue will enable more people to enjoy the whole festival and thus provides a more intense atmosphere for the acoustic performances given by the artists. We have converted our tennis hall especially for this purpose and the venue offers room for 1000 visitors.
We look forward to opening "The Alex" with a concert by the British artist Alex Hepburn on 10th April 2014. She has a stunningly husky voice and received a lot of attention throughout Europe for her début album "Together Alone".
A special highlight will then follow on the 11th April 2014. The Belgium musician Milow always guarantees a real "unplugged" experience because his music is "unplugged by nature". He already appeared at the festival back in 2010 and will also present songs from his new, and sixth, studio album this year.
The American group "Band of Horses" will grace our new stage on the 12th April 2014 to provide a fitting conclusion and highlight to this year's series of concerts at "The Alex". "Acoustic at The Ryman" is the name of the highly acclaimed new acoustic album by this band from Seattle. The album is available to purchase from February. We are just as excited about their performance as all of the music aficionados!
All three concerts will begin at 22:45. Our popular Club Lounge and Cocktail Bar will be open after the concerts to enable you to continue the party in a stylish setting. You can find more information about the festival at: www.zermatt-unplugged.ch. Tickets for all concerts are already available from all Starticket sales outlets.
