Though Bern is the country's capital, Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland.  To the north of the city centre, the festival site is right next to the airport. 


Address

Flughofstrasse 21, Zurich, 8152, Switzerland

FAQs

Zürich Kloten Airport is the largest in Switzerland, and the festival site is within touching distance of the airport's southern corner. Tram lines 10 and 12 run from the airport every few minutes, and it's a 5 minute journey to Bäuler station, which is the festival site. 

The organisers recommend that drivers park at the airport and then take the tram. 

By train, Glattbrugg Bahnhof is a very short walk from the venue.
