Salsafestival Switzerland

The Salsa Festival Switzerland taking place from February 21-24 2019 at club X-TRA Zurich is one of the most prestigious Salsa congresses worldwide. Already for the 18th time in a row the Salsafestival Switzerland presents to you the most shining stars of Salsa, only top shows, the greatest workshops and amazing Salsa parties with open end on five dance floors.


  • The line-up is top-notch like every year. Tropical Gem,  Alberto Valdes, Supermario, Euphoria Dance Company, and many more stars join our Salsafestival. Here you'll find the current line-up.
  • All artists (Shows, workshops, DJs) are payed professionals. That's how we ensure that all shows and workshops are world-class.
  • We present not more than 6-10 shows per night. That means that also on Saturday we schedule 1 single show set.
  • So you can expect more party time. At the moment we are planning more than 150 party hours during the Salsafestival weekend - more than in any other Salsa event as far as we know.
  • The parties for Cuban Casino dancers will be extended - from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m.
  • Dance Kizomba until 7 a.m.
  • Dance Bachata until 7 a.m.

The Salsafestival Switzerland is the ultimate meet up of salseros, rumberos, bachateros and kizomberos from all over the world.
