Paleo's little teaser trailer

Events// Entertainment// Art & Culture // April 12, 2016

The very first edition of the festival that was to become Paleo, was named "First Folk Festival" and saw 1800 people gathering in the community hall in Nyon in 1976.

40 years later, in 2015, some 230,000 spectators roamed the 84-hectare site in the heights of Nyon to see more than 250 artists

Paleo has become an important date in the European musical calendar and, since its inception, the festival has experienced steady and controlled growth. For fifteen years now, the festival has sold out before the doors even open on the first day.

Dying to know who the 2016 artists are? Keep your eyes peeled on the WRS website from 11am on Tuesday 12th April, or tune in on www.worldradio.ch/player at 11am on the dot!
