What is Saint-Jean Rock ?

Not merely a festival, the Saint-Jean Rock is a fantastic adventure initiated by the Levron Youth Group, materialised by a committee of 8 brave young women and men and supported by over a hundred volunteers!

The «test-run» in 2015 having drawn huge crowds, passionate reviews and tons of positive feedback it has been extended for a 2 time this year.

Saint-Jean Rock is ALSO …. A festival over 2 days at the beginning of summer season (located at 1’350m above sea level we thought it best to avoid the winter chill), a magic show, a one man stand-up show and no less than…. 9 concerts (you either do things properly or not at all !).

Saint-Jean Rock has a hefty budget; close to CHF 65k. I know we Swiss don’t like discussing money in public, but we really feel it’s worth taking the risk of bringing up the subject as this is where the festival needs your support …..

Chance always smiles to those who dare, as one says, and we dare to hope you will embark with us on this beautiful adventure.

Our goal

Our goal is rather commendable; see for yourself: we aim to promote the development of musical activities, in particular through the organisation of concerts. Putting the accent on local Valais-based bands (our apologies to all the rest), and offering time on a relatively small stage (well, it’s actually about 36 square meters in total) so that these «newbie» bands can get thrown in the deep-end and experience their audience first-hand (obviously huge, the audience … at least we hope).
