One thing the COVID-19 pandemic all but completely prevented was the introduction of new festivals. Current events had to fight for their lives, so the idea of starting something new simply didn’t make sense. However, now that things are lightening up around the world, first-time events are sprouting up like the new weekender called Verve.
Verve is the new techno festival coming to Lucerne, Switzerland. The event will take place over May 20-22, 2022, it will feature two stages, and a lineup rooted in techno. The first wave of artists includes Berghain resident Ben Klock, seasoned dancefloor veterans Pig & Dan, and Afterlife prodigies Innellea.
Founder of Verve Festival Omar A.Rahman says, “We have been facing many challenges while planning the festival and organizing all the little details due to the Pandemic. However, we believe it is the right time to announce our Verve Festival in Luzern. The whole industry is not tolerating the situation anymore, and we feel it is our duty to do something and back up the industry.”
