Here the most important news:

  • The line-up is top-notch like every year. Tropical Gem,  Alberto Valdes, Terry et Cécile, Supermario, Alba Estilos Unidos, Euphoria Dance Company , Euphoria Dance Company and many more stars join our Salsafestival. Here you'll find the complete line-up.
  • All artists (Shows, workshops, DJs) are payed professionals. We don't make any promotional deals. The only thing that we are interested in is quality.
  • We present no more than 8- 10 shows per night. That means that on Saturday we schedule 1 single show set.
  • So you can expect more party time. At the moment we are planning more than 100 party hours during the Salsafestival weekend - more than in any other Salsa event as far as we know.
  • The parties for Casino dancers will be extended as well - from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m.
  • Now you can also dance Kizomba until 7 a.m.

Breaking News!
Thursday, 6. Oct 2016

Kongresshaus Zürich will be completely renovated from mid 2017.

In February 2017 Salsafestival Switzerland will be presented at the Kongresshaus Zürich for the last time in history.

The Kongresshaus Zürich is the official location of the „Salsafestival Switzerland“ since its beginning in 2002. Starting mid 2017 the Kongresshaus will definitely be reconstructed and will be closed for at least three years. Therefore a continuation of the event in the Kongresshaus will not be possible.

February 2017 presents the last opportunity to visit the legendary Salsafestival Switzerland in the impressive setting of the Kongresshaus Zürich. In the middle of the city. Directly by the lake.

The organisation team of the „Salsafestival Switzerland“ is now working on its masterpiece. The result will be another overwhelming Salsafestival where the friendliest and best artists will gather again in the impressive Kongresshaus Zurich. With a concert you will remember your entire lifetime. Organised with the exact same precision, punctuality and friendliness that makes each stay at the Zurich Salsafestival so unique.

No Salsero, no Bachatero, no Kizombeiro should miss this last occasion to see this last firework at Kongresshaus Zürich next February.

From 2018 the event will take place at another location. The organisers will inform about those plans at a later stage.
