Switzerland reopens indoor and outdoor shows

Switzerland welcomes live performances following the new rules that were introduced on April 19.

Under the new law, Switzerland will allow shows for 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors.

While this may not seem like a big deal, the Swiss Music Promoters Association (SMPA) appreciates the government's decision and considers it an “important first step” in returning to normal life.

According to the law, any public event (concert, club show or festival) of inter-cantonal significance and scheduled for the period from June 1, 2021 to April 30, 2022, will incur costs if they were forced to cancel their events due to measures taken government to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
