Ever since the first festival in 2009, we aim at organising this event according to our values : choose what you pay at the entrance, underground and DIY bands, in Lausanne, no advertising within the grounds of the festival, etc.

This year, although our new location is ideal on many counts, it totally lacks of infrastructure. In case of rain, we really want to keep your feet dry so shelters and tents have to be rented and let me tell you : «They’re expensive as hell !!»

In other terms, it is like taking pre-sales like you would do for any other concert/festival. More than money it’s the quarantee to see you guys partying with us.

In 2013, Grill The Hill will have the support of the city of Lausanne and different partners. You will find below the explanations as to where our money is coming from – and what it will be used for – for this 4th edition.
