Burning Mountain Festival
The Burning Mountain Festival is an annual electronic art & music festival that happens every year in an amazing natural spot on a river bend in a valley in Engadin Mountains in the Swiss Alps. It is organized by the Burning Mountain Society, a nonprofit association and has been running since 2010. The festival has been growing steadily and last year’s edition saw more than 5000 attendees. Musically you can expect the more progressive and offbeat side of psytrance on the line up.
