Head and heart

Driven by the friendship between Gwendolyn Masin, violinist and artistic director, and the Bernese architect Christoph Ott, the partners and the GAIA team have been working together since 2009 and ensure a varied and exciting music festival every year.

Gwendolyn Masin

"GAIA is more than music. GAIA has something of the enchanted about it — something that cannot be described, only experienced." 

Christoph Ott

"GAIA is a pearl for everyone involved, be it as a listener, artist or sponsor. GAIA is a meeting place for a wide range of partners for innovative business ideas."

Soul and spirit

Andreas Fleck

"GAIA is cordial - everyone involved is looking forward to the recurring event. As a playing manager, I combine the playful with the organizational and prepare the musicians the stage for their creativity."
