There is lots of music in the programme - see music with four outside stages, and you can try line dancing. Lots of western food and stuff to buy and look at.

Entry to the Western Town is CHF 15 for the day, to be bought at the gates. Children up to 12 years free, over 12 years CHF 10. Attendance at the concert costs CHF 80 including the day pass and must be reserved in advance.

Meet by arrangement with Graham 077 425 4720, perhaps at Ostring near the tram stop, at the gas station at 14:15, returning together at 20:00. With my van I am allowed to park close; you can go by your vehicle but you may have to walk some distance. G

Hi Graham, if you are going by car and still have space I'd be glad to join you, and where's pick up? No worries if not - I don't mind the train and have a GA (but not the good company:-) Jill

On Saturday also: Philippine festival, from noon to 10 pm. A program of variety for the whole family, with music, games, and lots of fun. The aim of the festival is to mix various cultures and exchange experiences and to voluntarily support a project for children in the Philippines, Location: Restaurant Eichholz, Strandweg 45, 3084 Wabern. Note: there is no parking nearby, tram 9 and bus 28 or 29 go close.

Das Westerndorf ist das sympathische und lebendige Herzstück des Festivals! Über 100 Stände, Bars und Shops sowie 4 Aussenbühnen, das grosse Kuppelzelt, der Funpark, eine einzigartige Stimmung und das angeschlossene Biker Treffen geben den idealen Rahmen dazu. Weitere Informationen rund ums Westerndorf gibt’s hier

Das Festgelände ist ideal, um den Tanzbeinen freien Lauf zu lassen - das Westerndorf auf Asphalt, im grossen Festzelt ein Holzboden, Platz vor den Bühnen und dazu ein vielseitiges Angebot für Könner und Anfänger - Line Dance ist einer der vier wichtigen Programmpfeiler des Festivals – entsprechend gross das Angebot über das ganze Wochenende: Line Dance Night, Line Dance Shows, Line Dance mit DJ im grossen Festzelt (mit eigenem Holzboden!), Line Dance Workshops für Anfänger und für Fortgeschrittene
