The weather forecast is looking pretty good for Caribana this week. This lakeside festival near Nyon (in Crans-près-Céligny) is the first of the summer music festivals in the area and starts on Wednesday 5th until Sunday 9th June. At the moment there are still tickets available for all nights.
Franz Ferdinand is the main headline act on the main stage on for Wednesday night, but it’s always worth watching out for other bands who appear earlier on the lake stage such as Barns Courtney from the UK (see video below) on the line up at 18:30.
on Thursday Kodaline, Morcheeba and Bastian Baker appear on the Grande Scène, on Friday, Caravan Palace and German DJ Robin Schulz, Saturday is for lovers of rap and hip-hop. Sunday there’s RnB, hip-hop and an improv group from Nyon (in French).
Check the full line up and times here. There are regular buses that run from Nyon railway station (line 811) and free shuttles for the festival that leave from Gland, Prangins and in front of Nyon La Combe shopping centre. See pdf here There is also some allocated car parking for the festival.
