From 23 October to 12 November, in Basel , the capital of the Swiss pharmaceutical and chemical industry, BALOISE SESSION Festival had a successful 30th Anniversary edition!
Rock At Night was there covering this highly coveted and esteemed concert series. We consider the highlights of the elevent concerts to be James Arthur, Iggy Pop, Katzenjammer, Candy Dulfer, Trombone Shorty, and Toto.
Such great musical moments–and a special award went to Iggy Pop for Lifetime Achievement! “When I get a fucking award, it makes me bored”, said the Iguana! All night long running and jumping on stage he exclaimed profanities like “fucking this and fucking that”!!
With a talented new band, Iggy has a new challenge for the road. With a bunch of dollars and back to Miami, his wrinkled skin will be taking the perfect shape for new adventures!
Please note for next year BALOISE SESSION 2016 will be take place between 21 October to 8 November. Here, you have some shots from these beautiful concerts.
