01.03.2020 - FANTASTIC NEGRITO, a « GRAMMY AWARD » winner for the evening of June 12th

After the announcement of ZUCCHERO as top of the bill for its 12th edition, the Sierre Blues Festival has succeeded another great stroke of genius by signing the FANTASTIC NEGRITO in exclusivity for French-speaking Switzerland for Friday, June 12th.

When you listen to Fantastic Negrito, you are drawn into the story of life after destruction. Each song is the real-life story of an Oakland musician who has experienced the high-life of a million-dollar record deal, the lows of a near-fatal car accident that left him in a coma, and who is now in the midst of a renaissance that has taken him from the streets of Oakland to the stage of the Grammy Awards. Along the way, he won the NPR Tiny Desk competition and played at prestigious festivals such as the Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia and the Glastonbury Festival in England and it is going to be a great privelege to see him on the Plaine Bellevue, even more so as his show is described as energetic combining “Delta Blues” and James Brown funk.

Fantastic Negrito’s first two albums, The Last Days of Oakland (2017) and Please Don’t Be Dead (2019) won the Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary Blues Album, and his highly anticipated third album Have You Lost Your Mind Yet? is to be released this summer.

Tickets are already on pre-sale exclusively with our partners Starticket and Fnac.

The full program is to be unveiled on Tuesday 10th March at 8pm.

07.11.2019 - ZUCCHERO: Star guest for the 12th Sierre Blues Festival in 2020

The Sierre Blues Festival is happy and proud to announce that it has struck gold for its next edition by programing ZUCCHERO and his brand-new D.O.C World Tour. Their promising show is planned on Saturday June 13th on the “Plaine Bellevue”. It will be an exclusive concert in French-speaking Switzerland, one of the only two shows that the Italian artist is giving in our country in 2020.
When the Sierre Blues Festival was created, the founders had two dreams: to bring ZZ TOP and ZUCCHERO to the “Cité du Soleil”. In 2017, with the arrival of ZZ TOP, the first dream came true. On June 13th 2020, after over ten long years of hard work, the arrival of ZUCCHERO for the 12th edition of the Sierre Blues Festival marks the transition of the organizers’ second dream to reality.
The Sierre Blues Festival 2020 takes place from June 11th to 13th on the “Plaine Bellevue” in Sierre (Canton of Valais). Tickets for this unique event are now available exclusively from the festival’s partners Starticket and Fnac.
