    Thanks for list of some of the upcoming summer festivals. Good post.

  2. Johannes Ruehl Says:

    This is for shure since 1999 the leading festival for contemporary alpine music. Alpentoene (“Sounds of the Alps”) covers muscial innovation of the whole alpine range from Slovenia to France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. We bring together the different sounds of all alpine cultures. We like traditional music but we look for new concepts.
    Next edition: 16. – 18. august 2013
