Nyon : The Paleo Folk Festival
Home > Tourist Guide > Table of contents > Lake Geneva > Nyon > Paleo Folk Festival

Nyon’s biggest party is also one of Europe’s biggest – the giant Paleo Rock Festival (infomation and tickets 022/365 10 10, www.paleo.ch), which takes place over a week in late July in a field outside town, with a consistently excellent line-up of musicians attracting hundreds of thousands of revellers. Acts in 1999 were as diverse as Bryan Adams and Ruben Gonzalez, the Fun Lovin’ Criminals and Cesaria Evora, Garbage and Charles Aznavour. If you buy early, you can snap up a day ticket for as little as Fr.38, or a full six-day pass for Fr.180; transport from Nyon to the site and back is free. The tourist office also has festival-plus-hotel packages, which again rise in price the later you book.
