One thing should be said in advance: there will be no monoculture on the Gurtenwiese in 2024 either. This can be seen from the now completed festival program. It is a program that relies on the greatest possible divergence, on the magic of opposites. Would you like an example? A harsher contrast than between the Bernese rock of Patent Ochsner and the juvenile escapism of the Berlin gabber techno project Brutalism 3000 a festival really can’t serve.

In this way, the Gurten Festival is fulfilling its promise not only to embrace diversity, but also to implement it musically. A look at the individual days:

The motto of the opening day could be described as urban, popular. To the already announced German pop bass music hero Peter Fox has dealt with Stormzy one of the most solid, but also most opportunistic UK rap royalty. In addition, the fabulous singer-songwriter is deep into his pores Michael Kiwanuka Proving that soul music can still be full of secrets in 2024. However, the duo does not have the same depth Sofi Tukker to be expected, but nice dance music for the large disco. The group Kafka has the recipe in store for how German-speaking youth can be encouraged to jump, drink and wallow in world pain at the same time. And: The Ghanaian Afrobeats Vedette Amaarae shows what it sounds like when you place a very thin voice next to very fat beats.

This is not a day for purists. In addition to the schmaltz pop of the Afrobeats great master Burna Boy is more of a frosty German New Wave Edwin Rosen on offer, there is Latin pop from the Colombian superstar band who are currently in a bit of a creative crisis Stereo Bomb. There is also sophisticated gold edge disco music from Jungle, and there is the new Swiss soul sensation I feel sick to admire, which made a certain Lionel Richie look frighteningly old at the last Montreux Jazz Festival.

And who will get it with? Patent Ochsner to pretend? With all sorts of French people: for example with Zaho de Sagazan, one of the greatest French chanson modifiers of modern times. Or with the Parisians Oracle Sisters, who perform weird retro soul. Do retro soul too Thee Scared Souls, who made it into the top 10 of our favorite songs of 2022 with their song “Future Lover”. The band is in the favorite songs list of 2023 Kerala Dust represented with their elegant pop noir. And if the day becomes too comfortable for you, the Parisians’ night music is always slightly overproduced Justice halfway recommended.

A real superstar has now been found for Saturday. However, one whose most refreshing phase was 20 years ago. Nelly Furtado was the likeable antithesis of the rampant test-tube pop stars back then, mixed Fado with electronics, and used a mandolin alongside hip-hop beats. In short: The singer, who was born in the Azores, proved that pop can also tolerate a lot of unpredictability. Since then, she has surrounded herself with musical advisors who have trimmed her down to pop mediocrity. Nevertheless, you can look forward to listening to it again. We can look forward to the band even more Golden Day, It is thanks to this that Turkish music of the 1970s is considered hip throughout Europe. There’s also widescreen soul pop from the New Yorker Iniko, Ski hut music by Ski Aggu, a DJ set by the Disco Schmerfinken Chromeo, the boozy one Faber and the once very refreshing summer pop heroine Jain. A nice package.

The Gurten Festival will take place from July 17th to 20th, 2024.
