UFEST 2017 welcomed more than 500 people and raised 5,300 francs to support three village collectives that are building water supply systems in northern Laos.
See the final accounting of the event….
This first edition took place in Biel/Bienne on 18 June 2017.
Organized in partnership with a young Biel-based web radio station (Mute Radio), the U-FEST lasted all day and brought together half a dozen groups and independent musicians, all your volunteers.
Thank you to all the people who participated in the organization of the festival.
First of all the Mute Radio team – Swiss webradio – Etienne, Arnaud, Timothy, Jascha, Benjamin, Loris, Jeremy, Maël – for this collaboration, this hard work and this impeccable stage and sound set up.
The countless volunteers: Laryssa for photography, Roro Toto for video, Noëlle for her translations and time on the day of the event, Jordan for her patience at the entrance, Amir for the food stand, Lucio for those 200 medium sausages, Tamara, Daniela and Tiffany for their versatility.
Let’s not forget those two people who were not planned, but who finally made the difference: René and Michaël without whom the U-FEST would not have been so beautiful.
Then, the musicians and performers. In order of passage: David Charles Haeberli, François Golay and Marie-Laure Kraft Golay, Popeye & Olive Show, Homaze with Markus Moser and Nicolas Andrzej Safjan, Elisa Schmid accompanied on guitar by Timothy Lack, CabDrivers, TillMad (Damien Antille) accompanied by Tim Schaller and finally Douleur d’Avion.
A huge thank you also to our sponsors: 1001fleurs – Le Sirupier de Berne – Hugo Reitzel – Arkina
