Lucerne Festival

Summer Festival 2020

The summer festival has a wide program, both in terms of the range of locations and the styles of music on offer The city will plunge into a dizzying summer of music, with many concerts taking place throughout the city. These will feature everything from chamber music recitals to great symphonies, with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and the Lucerne Academy also holding residencies throughout.

The festival will unfortunately not take place this summer. Click here for more information.

But you can still experience the joy of music.


The "40min" format in Lucerne Hall involves the interaction between big names and young artists, serving as a supporting program for the main concerts. The musicians have an exceptional amount of freedom in terms of programming and arrangement. Unknown and surprising pieces are presented to visitors – a very special warm-up with free admission.
