Presented by Bad Bonn & Spezialmaterial
Behind the walls of this rather stiff looking building at the border of a remote lake in the middle of Switzerland’s no man’s land you find one of the most exquisite concert venues of the country: Bad Bonn. No matter if metal, antifolk, country, electronica, indie or hip-hop-the venue has presented everything that was relevant at the outer fringes of pop music since 1991.
Cio Assereto is a Swiss promoter, DJ, and music enthusiast. Under the Spezialmaterial-banner he provides a steady stream of off-kilter-dance-music. Be it a concert by Autechre at Lucerne’s Boa back in the days, or an all-night DJ set by Vladimir Ivkovic and Lena Willikens at Zurich’s Zukunft, Cio exactly knows how to make a crowd dance to music that actually can be listened to.
Oto Nove Swiss is a three-day festival at London´s Café Oto presenting adventurous musicians and bands from Switzerland and the UK. Initiated by Bad Bonn, Südpol Luzern, and Präsens Editionen, 2019 marks the festival’s second installment.

With the kind support by Pro Helvetia, Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation, Fondation Suisa, and Swiss Cultural Fund UK.
