An annual must for any freestyler is the pilgrimage to Zurich’s Landiwiese from September 25-27. Every year, the international line-up at freestyle.ch has audiences in the grips of high-voltage suspense: after all, only one rider in each of the snowboarding, free skiing, FMXing and skateboarding categories ultimately reaches the winner’s podium. The 15th annual showdown is sure to draw major crowds in awe of rock star riders and their dazzling display of masterly new tricks at Zurich’s Landiwiese. But even gods need a break now and then... However, thanks to Nokia, in between all the sports action, audiences will be served up Switzerland’s two top musical artists – Stress and Phenomden!
Stress – Rebel and Social Critic The Lausanne rapper, Stress, along with his entourage, will take over the stage Friday evening. This guy’s style oscillates between rebellious and melancholy and is loaded with a strong dose of provocation, self-mockery and social criticism. His live shows are legendary for their brilliance and just one more reason for his success. Regarding freestyle.ch Zurich, the most famous Swiss rapper says, “Until now, I’ve only experienced freestyle.ch as a visitor, being blown away each time. It will be exciting to stand on the stage and be the one to inject a powerful atmosphere.“ Special friday4friends tickets to his gig – 4 friends admitted for the price of 3 – are available through September 11. World of Freestyle members can also take advantage of the discounted 3-day pass through September 11.
Gangdalang –Phenomenon Phenomden The current uncontested No. 1 in Swiss dialect reggae will soon grace the freestyle.ch stage: “I used to be a skater, so it’s really cool to be playing at freestyle.ch Zurich,“ says Phenomden. It’s the riddims, and not the stage lights, that make this artist sweat. Phenomden throws his heart and soul into it every time. Just as the title of his infectious tune, «Stah da» , makes clear, Phenomden was born to stand on stage. The 29 year old native of Zurich captivates with his warmth and sincerity, making him great to experience live on stage. Emotions take front seat in Phemomden’s songs – it's no wonder that fans rush to grab tickets to his concerts. Make way Saturday for one of the coolest acts in Switzerland at present!
