Swiss Live Talents


The promotional contest Swiss Live Talents, created in 2013 by the organization SwissAmp with the support of FONDATION SUISA, aims to bring upcoming Swiss talents to light.

The contest takes place every two years, bringing together artists, journalists and concert promoters. A jury of Swiss club and festival representatives nominates 5 acts for each of the seven prize categories. During the ceremony in Bern the nominees perform live for an audience of music professionals before an international jury selects the winners in each category. Additionally, the audience chooses the Public Award winner, and FONDATION SUISA awards its prize for the best musical composition.
