A new techno festival - entitled Verve - has been launched in Switzerland, which is set to go ahead May 20 to May 22.
Verve will take place in the city of Lucerne’s Allement/Messe 1 arena and see over 24 hours of music played across two stages in the venue.

Verve is expected to boast massive laser displays with high level sound systems and an overall futuristic vibe, to celebrate avant-garde electronic music.
There will be two indoor stages - firstly, a vast mainroom with light shows and then a smaller second space for more intimate sets.
“We have been facing many challenges while planning the festival and organising all the little details due to the pandemic,” explains the festival’s founder, Omar A.Rahman. “However, we believe that now 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.”

The festival is also easily accessible by train, with a station that stops outside of the venue.
