The Swiss Yodel Festival 2017

Swiss Post and the 30th Swiss Yodel Festival

The Swiss Yodel Festival is an event that goes back many years in Switzerland. The popular musical event is deeply rooted in Switzerland – just like Swiss Post. In 2017, PostBus will be providing important transport services in Brig-Glis and sponsoring the event as a »Jützer« partner.

From 22 to 25 June 2017, Brig-Glis will be transformed into the Swiss Yodel Festival. During the four-day event, up to 15,000 yodellers, flag throwers and alphorn players will participate actively in the public festival in Valais. A total of 150,000 visitors are also expected to attend.

In addition to talks in atmospheric settings in Brig, Glis and Naters, other celebrations will be held, including the opening ceremony on Friday and the parade on Sunday. The majority of the festivities will take place in the yodelling village by the secondary school building and the yodelling street along Gliserallee.
