This information is provisional. The detailed programme with exact times and locations will be posted just before the festival. Print versions will be available at the festival office.

Large audience, small venue: some events may sell out quickly. We appreciate your understanding if we must limit audience size for security reasons. Several choices are offered during most event times.

Festival tents
For the second time, we set up two tents in Leukerbad. On the the meadow next to the Old Bath St. Laurent will be the “James Baldwin Tent” and another tent on the village square. This will allow us to react flexibly to hygiene requirements and the weather.

Pablo’s Lounge
The oldest and most traditional festival bar in Le Bristol serves poetic drinks from Thursday to Saturday, on Saturday from 23:30 with DJ Mifume. Other festival bars in the Hotel Les Sources des Alpes and in the Baldwin tent.
