Avenches Tattoo

Aug 31, 2023 - Sep 2, 2023
Avenches - Celebration and Festival

This international music festival is now known as the 2nd biggest event of its type in Switzerland and is held in the majestic courtyard of the Swiss National Studfarm, located not far from Avenches and Lake Morat.

The 17th Avenches Tattoo will take place at the Swiss National Stud Farm.

Military Tattoos are commonplace in the north of Europe and becoming increasingly popular in Switzerland. The only event of its type in French-speaking Switzerland, the Avenches Tattoo brings together nearly 500 musicians – military and civil – from all over Europe.

The invited high quality musical and choreographic marching bands put on spectacular shows that make the arenas pulsate with incredible sound and arouse the audience’s enthusiasm. Whether it is popular or modern melodies, the musicians, who are truly virtuosos of their art, are gifted in producing an exceptionally colourful show full of phenomenal, precise movements and figures.
