OpenAir St.Gallen is one of Europe's biggest rock and electronic music festivals. Genre-leading bands and DJs join crowds of over 100,000, surrounded by Switzerland's stunning north-eastern landscape.
Since 1977, OpenAir St.Gallen has been part of Europe's trailblazers and pioneers, with many younger festivals aspiring to match the jewel in Switzerland's festival crown.
Added to all this, an absolute commitment to sustainability is just one way in which OpenAir St.Gallen is still leading from the front, bringing like-minded people together around shared values and love for live music.
Depeche Mode are the first headliner announced for 2018's festival. Last year included Die Toten Hosen, Biffy Clyro, Justice, alt-J and many more.
Mountains, forests and sweeping meadows make for a beautiful backdrop that many large-scale festivals can only envy.
