This international music festival is now known as the 2nd biggest event of its type in Switzerland and is held in the magical Roman amphitheatre in Avenches, the capital of roman Helvetica near Lake Morat.
In view of the uncertainties linked to the organisation of major events, the 16th edition of Avenches Tattoo from 2 to 4 September 2021 has been postponed. The tickets purchased remain valid for the 2022 edition which will take place from 1 to 3 September 2022.
Military Tattoos are commonplace in the north of Europe and becoming increasingly popular in Switzerland. The only event of its type in French-speaking Switzerland, the Avenches Tattoo brings together nearly 500 musicians – military and civil – from all over Europe.
The invited high quality musical and choreographic marching bands put on spectacular shows that make the arenas pulsate with incredible sound and arouse the audience’s enthusiasm. Whether it is popular or modern melodies, the musicians, who are truly virtuosos of their art, are gifted in producing an exceptionally colourful show full of phenomenal, precise movements and figures.
