As a city of festivals, Lucerne offers a year-round programme of music and culture that's both rich and unique: classical music, brass bands, blues, jazz, fine food, comics/fumetti, theatre – not to mention Lucerne's famous carnival. The city's passion for music enjoys a long tradition. The main concert hall in the KKL Luzern is the scene of music-making excellence featuring soloists, conductors and orchestras of world renown.
The Lucerne Festival is one of the leading international organisers of classical and contemporary music festivals. World-famous orchestras and leading conductors have helped establish Lucerne's reputation as an exclusive festival venue right from the start. Lucerne Festival comprises three separate festivals each year: «Lucerne Festival at Easter», «Lucerne Festival in Summer», and «Lucerne Festival at the Piano».
