What's on: Festivals rule! From classical to country
With festivals featured throughout Switzerland, there's plenty of possibilities for music enthusiasts. Verbier and Gstaad launch their annual classical offerings, Basel focuses on vocals while Gurten waits on the whims of Babyshambles' leader Pete Docherty. Elsewhere, there's military parachuting and tomato tasting, while teenage grandmasters sacrifice their youth to the exacting demands of the chessboard.
