Our Raft is a concert stage – amazingly equipped, with sound, light and a flock of seagulls – on the ever-flowing waters of the Rhine River, this main artery of Basel City.

Our three-week summer festival brings a Mediterranean maritime mood down to the riverside – and the Kleinbasel side it is, the shores of Basel’s legendary and infamously dingy small town.

Three weeks, sixteen hand-picked acts, 50’000 spectators, a rowdy crew of jocks plus food and drinks, of course. Come down and join us! Let them good times roll.

Free entry & collection (be careful though, the latter is run by them jolly jocks).
