There was once a day when the suisse-romande area was not the haven of musical festivals that it is today.

Hard to imagine, isn’t it?

On of the first ever music festivals in the area was the “Festival Folk d’Epalinges.” But after nine years of bringing the folk music scene to Lausanne (1974-1982), the festival was cancelled.

A group of folk-enthusists have decided to revive the event this weekend October 4-5, 2013 as the “1066 Festival,” and the line up of musicians seems excellent!

Tickets are 45chf a night or 79chf for the two nights. You can pick them up at Pomp Funebres, Pomp It Up, or at Starticket.ch.

Here’s a sample of a few artists that caught our attention:

How fun are these guys?!?

What do you think? Will you be there?
