Swiss Rising Talent 2022

The Swiss Rising Talent concerts highlight six up-and-coming Swiss artists. The selection reflects a multilingual and talented Swiss scene in many musical genres. 

The programme has been divided into three evenings, each representing a different facet of the Swiss music scene. The Wednesday evening will have a folk-pop flavour with the indie compositions of Auk Nova from Bern and Nola Kin from Zurich. Thursday will be anchored in modern jazz with Basel accordionist Anatole Muster and Zurich multi-instrumentalist Andrina Bollinger. The Friday evening will have a more urban tone with the neo soul of the Ticinese Pilar Vega and the melancholy rap of Valaisan Nuit Incolore

The Swiss Rising Talent artists will benefit from the creative effervescence of the festival, expand their network and participate in the Academy’s practical workshops. They will also leave with a professionally filmed video of their performance, intended to feed their promotion and content on social media. 

Free access, no reservation.


The Swiss Rising Talent artist or band with the most non-duplicate votes will be awarded CHF 8’000.– worth of music gear. This exceptional gift is supported by Julius Baer, a Global Partner of the Montreux Jazz Festival and Autumn of Music.
