Switzerland’s music scene is thriving with outstanding musical creativity. SwissAmp, a non-profit organization made up of professionals from the music industry, has been working constantly since 2012 to discover and showcase new and confirmed talents. To help support and promote these artists in Switzerland and abroad, SwissAmp created Swiss Live Talents in 2013.



Afin de soutenir et de promouvoir ces artistes en Suisse et à l’étranger, SwissAmp a créé Swiss Live Talents en 2013.


Swiss Live Talents takes place every two years and brings together artists, media, concert organizers, and a jury of music professionals from all over the world.

Every two years, artists can apply to be nominated on the website. A jury composed of programmers from Swiss clubs and festivals then selects 5 artists to represent each of the 7 genre categories. During the award ceremony in Bern, the nominated artists perform in front of an audience made up of significant figures of the music industry. An international jury then selects the winner of each category. The Public Award recognizes the best artist chosen by the public who has had the opportunity to discover the bands performing at various festivals. The Fondation Suisa Award honors the best musical composition.

To participate in the Swiss Live Talents event as a nominee or winning an award means acquiring national awareness, but also the opportunity to perform in renowned festivals and clubs in Switzerland and abroad.

The success of the first two editions was such that Swiss Live Talents has decided to go even further this year by organizing MUMA, a music marathon in the capital on November 17-18.
