With seven concerts taking place between 2 and 7 May 2023, the GAIA Music Festival returns for its 14th edition entitled “Folk Songs”. Concerts in Thun, Oberhofen, Hilterfingen and Bern will explore the influence of folk music on classical music. The associated narratives ultimately lead to a better understanding of peoples. GAIA's diverse group of outstanding artists have been invited to perform at the festival because each of them shares a common belief: that people can come to understand each other more deeply through the exchange of music and personal stories about love, life and friendship. Ultimately, this understanding leads to the promotion and sustainability of peace.
