Since the first edition of the ”Bern-Gurten International Folk Festival” in 1971 many things have changed. Back then the festival was far from being the big event it is today. Its organisers were not able to find a suitable lighting system for the stage and were forced to install lamps at the last minute to prevent the festival taking place in the dark! Since then the Gurtenfestival has grown significantly, but the unmistakable charm, the warm and cosy folk festival atmosphere and the relaxed ambience that Bern is known for are still deeply enrooted, just as they were back in 1971.
