⁄Shishko at Buskers Bern 2017

Hi Christine,
I want to tell you again how much I appreciated and enjoyed Bern.
It was in some ways the most fulfilling musical experience of my life.   
Better than playing headline stages in big festivals.
It was the personal touch and the amazing heartfelt organisation of you and your team that makes it so amazing.
the crowds are so loving and the intimacy that was formed between the bands in just a weekend. AMAZING!
Thank You.
Moshe Zehavi, Shishko

Clouds at Buskers Bern 2017

Well, what can I say … I have never in my life seen and taken part in a better organised festival in such a wonderful place. All the time we were there, myself and Ray wanted for nothing because everything was there before us, food, drink, smiles, laughter, assistance, crowds and of course entertainment. Our job was made so much easier by the spirit of cooperation which seemed to run rich in the veins of Buskers Bern. To each and everyone involved I say heartfelt thank you.
Ian Bordley, Clouds.

Guy Verlinde at Buskers Bern 2017

[…] I wanna thank you for the warm welcome you gave me once again. I really appreciate the professionalisme of the organisation & the diversity of the acts, staff & volunteers. You managed to create something very extraordinary!!

You made my life easier than the first time as I only had 2 locations a day. Also I am very thankful I had some 'listen' locations, where I could play my softer songs to a seated listening audience. But I also enjoyed the late evening street stages where I could create a party on the streets.
I wish you all the best of luck for future editions of the festival. And I hope you can keep on finding the energy to continue, when there are setbacks. Because Buskers Bern is really extraordinary. But unfortunatly people don't really notice that, while it's up & running and take it sometimes for granted.

All the best & I am sure we will meet again.

The Sporthorses at Buskers Bern 2017

Das Buskers Bern ist als Festival nicht zu übertreffen: Alles ist liebevoll und doch super professionell eingerichtet, das Publikum erscheint zwar in Scharen, ist aber trotzdem offen, interessiert und zu allem bereit, Essen, Betreuung und Hutgeld waren herrvorragend. […]

Gabriela Mendes at Buskers Bern 2017

[…] I feel that with this event I grew up as an artist and as a person.
Both I and the musicians were amazed because it was a first experience in festivals of this genre.
Now I have returned to my beloved island and I keep in my mind these beautiful memories lived in Bern. […]

Querida Christine, queridos de la producción, voluntarios y toda la familia Buskers Bern,
Les escribo […] para manifestar nuestros eternos agradecimientos por todo que recibimos en Berna […]. Ha sido una experiencia diferenciada de todas las que ya pasamos. Aprendimos mucho en estos 5 días de contacto con vosotros y nos ha servido para alimentar nuestra ilusión, nuestro sueño de seguir haciendo música, haciendo arte para este mundo que, a cada día, necesita mas amor, cariño, atención, harmonía, corazón, paz y muchas sonrisas.
Cuanto a la organización propongo, para todos aquellos que decidieren organizar alguno evento relacionado con arte y cultura, que tomen el camino hasta Berna para estudiar/aprender con vosotros como se hacen las cosas con amor, respeto y profesionalismo. […]
Espero que tengamos correspondido con vuestras expectativas y contribuido para que el festival siga su lindo camino […] Felicidades!
Todos nosotros artistas, agradecemos de corazón vuestra noble actitud de regalar arte pura para el planeta.
Que viva el BUSKERS BERN!!! El festival de la sonrisa. Besos desde Barcelona.
Paulinho Lêmos, Forró Afiado

[…] Au nom de toute l'équipe, encore un grand MERCI à toute ton équipe, on a passé 3 jours super et on revient quand vous voulez ! ;)

It's been a month now that we left Bern and we are still feeling the energy of the festival!!! We want you to know that we've been to amazing places and venues around Europe, but the Buskers Bern experience is one of our favorite ever!!
We had one of the best times of our lives, we made new friends from all over the world and we admired how all your team and volunteers work together to give this amazing result. It was an honor for us to play there and work with your fantastic team and along with all these wonderful artists!
Congratulations to all of you and thank you for you hospitality and your energy. This is definitely not the last you'll hear from us!

I would like to congratulate you and your whole staff for the wonderful experience Buskers Bern became for me.
Next to the very nice financial part & cd sales, this festival will linger in my memory as one of the most extraordinary venues I ever played. I am very happy that you and your sister were crazy enough to start this endeavour and after 11 years still know how to infect all volunteers & musicians with your enthusiasm. This is very special. May the light of Buskers Bern shine for many years into the future.

Tristan Kruithof, Exoot

Thank you so much for that very great time at Buskers Bern.
Unfortunately we had to leave early morning yesterday without saying goodbye (I guess everybody was still sleeping). Today we start at the Boulevard Festival here in the Netherlands.
I now understand the Busker way of collecting money...and It was really special to see how this works in Zwitserland. We wish you a very good and healthy summer and thank you for your great hospitality.

Laura and Lorenzo, Compagnia ZiBa

Grazie mille!! Thank you so much for the beautiful experience in Buskers Bern!
It has been really a pleasure to perform in this festival, to meet you and all the artists in a very special and unique atmosphere.
You did a great job, and it is not obvious to find together professionality, kindness, organisation, enthusiasm, all this in the same festival, so congatulations, complimenti!
Grazie ancora and big hugs to you and all the volounteers,
Laura and Lorenzo, Compagnia ZiBa
