That’s where our artists take their well-earned rest.

Is where our artists rest – right at the banks of the river.

This fine tavern is waterhole and galley for our artists and sponsors.

Top level sight and sound for our stage acts, true fire workers on the water.

When our crew of jolly jocks needs a road-trip they give us the ride.

They build our pier - stable for eternity.

Basel’s fave newspaper – they give us the top news and the deep background, raft- and other-wise.

Life in the airwaves – ship’s radio.

Depeche distributors – maximum efficiency.
