Major acts in an intimate club setting

    Since 1986 the international music festival AVO SESSION Basel inspires the audience with diverse high-quality line-ups.

    In recent years, stars like Zucchero, Chuck Berry, Rufus Wainwright and many others have taken over the festival hall at the
    Basel Exhibition site. Audiences are plunged in an intimate club atmosphere, sitting at candlelit tables or enjoying the shows
    from the gallery. The multifaceted program is delivered throughout the months of October and November. The festival generally
    announces its line-up at the end of August.

    The venue is easily reachable with public transport from both train stations and airport. All three of Basel’s railway stations
    – SBB (Switzerland), SNCF (France) and DB (Badischer Bahnhof, Germany) – are within 5-10 minutes and Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg
    Airport is 15 minutes’ drive from Basel Exhibition.
