There’s lots of music on the agenda in the upcoming weeks in the Nyon area. Let’s hope the weather improves so we can enjoy all the concerts on offer!
Sunday concerts by Roman Columns in Nyon
Throughout the summer months there are Sunday concerts that take place from 11:00-13:30 by the Roman columns. Country, reggae and other music is on the line up this year. These free concerts are organised by the Association Places des Maronniers. There will be a buvette in place by the columns to purchase drinks and snacks. This Sunday the 13th July, Geneva band (Reggae, Ska, Dub) Rootstudy will be playing to the public.
