The Top 3 have been confirmed!

15. January 2018

The eighth Swiss Nightlife Award is fast approaching. On 30 January, the best in Swiss nightlife will once again be honoured for their achievements. The Top 3 have now been confirmed!

The public has been voting hard for their favourites. There are a few new faces among them: the Wundertüte, Lethargy, Mystica and Terrazzza Horse Park Festival events in Zurich, the Basel-based DJ duo Goldfinger Brothers, the U Bar in Vaud and the Widder Garage in Zurich are all new to the Top 3.

But there are also some old hands in the mix: the Zurich duo Adriatique, nominated in the ‘Best Electronica DJ’ category, already took home prizes in the same category in 2014 and 2015, and clubs like the Plaza in Zurich or D! in Vaud have also already won two Golden Owls each. The Absolut Techno and Polaris Festival events are hoping to earn their second Owl this year – both won their first award last year. DJ Cruz from Zurich and Luciano from Geneva, as well as locations such as Raygrodski, Mascotte, Nordstern, Hive and the Montreux Jazz Festival, are all in with a chance of adding to their collection of Golden Owls this year. Nachtseminar, We Love Techno,, EDX, Nora en Pure and Animal Trainer, as well as Openair Frauenfeld and Zürich Openair, are all looking to take home their first award – though none are strangers to the top three.

The winners of the White Owl Award and the Lifetime Award are not selected by public voting, but are chosen by the Swiss Nightlife Award Academy and will be announced on the night of the ceremony.
