Looking for a bit of country in the middle of Europe? Then head to the Trucker & Country Festival in Interlaken, Switzerland!

When most people think of Switzerland, they think of rolling Alpine mountains, delicious Swiss chocolate, skiing & snowboarding, and a whole bunch of other adventure sports. What you probably don’t think of is a massive trucker and country festival. But that’s exactly what happens in Interlaken and surrounding towns every year at the end of June. This 3 day long festival brings the best of country & western music, food, drink, and cultural activities. Need a dose of the wild west? Then read on to learn more about the Trucker & Country Festival in Interlaken!

What to Do at the Festival

Marvel at monster trucks and motorcycles, dance to some country & western music, indulge in a mixture of American, Texan, and Swiss food, and meet some modern day cowboys and girls! The Trucker & Country Festival brings its ‘A Game’ year after year for attendees. But it’s not just about the music and food at this festival; attendees can enjoy an array of line-dance performances, and learn the style themselves. The atmosphere and style will make you feel like the Wild West moved to Switzerland, which is a pretty incredible feat if you think about it!
Aside from line-dancing, you can watch some cowboy brawls, and other acts that will surely blow your boots off! And if you don’t have the proper attire, you can outfit yourself at one of the many stalls selling attire, merch, souvenirs, and so much more.
If motorcycles and big rigs are more your thing, then be sure to visit the lineup of them on display. The owners are always happy to chat with festival attendees and will enthusiastically show you all the tricks and special features of their rides.

Tickets & More Info

The 3 day festival gives attendees a few options for ticket purchase. Like most festivals, Early Bird tickets are always the cheapest option, however the lineups are never announced at that point. You can purchase a ticket for any day you’d like, or a 3 day pass. The festival pass usually goes for roughly 95 CHF (88€), but can vary from year to year.

As for camping, this is an option on the festival grounds! If you’re on a backpacking trip through Europe, it’s not likely you’ll have all the necessary camping gear to spend the night. You can arrange a tent, trailer, or RV rental on the festival website, or you can choose a comfier option in Interlaken. We have a top recommendation, but you have to keep reading to discover it!
