The CERN Hardronic Music Festival is back

The CERN Hardronic Music Festival is back: on the 23rd July, eleven of the finest MusiClub bands will come on stage to amuse the crowd on its 25th edition. The show will run from 3pm to 1am with bands playing alternatively on two stages behind Restaurant 3 so the music never stops.

A large range of music styles will entertain the audience live: from gameboy chiptune music to blues, hard rock and heavy metal. Alongside with music there will be a free bouncy castle for kids, a bar, a stand for food and a secondhand books, CD and DVD stall. The income from the food stand and the secondhand stall proceedings go to charity, one more reason to come and enjoy at the festival!
