A must for the past 15 years

Welcome to Rock Altitude

At an altitude of 1000 meters, surrounded by woods and greenery, let yourself be carried away by music and discovery…
With the assumed will to gather international icons and cutting edge finds under the same roof, the festival continues its momentum, surpassing the pure rock and metal connotations of the event.

Since 2006, the RA association has been making the city of Le Locle move with the Rock Altitude Festival. Initially regional, the notoriety of the festival has now become international thanks to its cutting-edge programming and exceptional sound quality, all at affordable prices.
The ice rink of Le Locle proves to be a suitable location: covered and equipped to receive a large audience, it has welcomed thousands of festival-goers in previous editions, allowing them to keep their feet dry while enjoying an “open air” atmosphere.

This 15th edition reflects our evolution, with a professional organization, an ecological turn, faithful sponsors and especially a growing support of the communication media and our partners.

A festival on a human scale

To make the region vibrate...

The largest open-air club in Switzerland

Since 2006, the RA association has remained true to its original concept. The success of the event has allowed it to continue to be organized for an ever-increasing number of spectators, in an idyllic setting at an altitude of 1000 meters.

A program worthy of the greatest festivals

With 4 evenings featuring nationally and internationally renowned artists as well as young up-and-coming regional bands, all festival-goers will find something to their liking with a varied and high quality musical selection.

A warm and characterful site

The wood chips spread over the floor of the Le Locle ice rink as well as an exceptional sound quality are 2 key points for the comfort of the festival-goers and the artists. The covered skating rink ensures that festival-goers can keep their feet dry no matter what the weather.

Friendly spirit, proximity concept

To allow access to the festival by offering performances at the right price: the entrance fee for the evenings starts at 35.00 – and this with world-renowned groups.
