BIRTHPLACE OF THE BONFIRE SESSION
In early summer of 2017, two friends met to spend the evening at a campfire, far away from the everyday hustle bustle. With their backpacks, they hiked up a mountain and found a secluded firepit in the midst of a clearing in the forest above the valley. They started a fire and did some cooking. At nightfall, one of the two played the guitar. The fire, which they fed with big chunks of wood, became a blaze that cast its light deep into the forest. There were good discussions.
In the solitude and silence of this moment, the idea was born to share this feeling of freedom, adventure and culture with others, «out in the woods». It is our belief that we humans, despite globalization, individualization and digitalization, have a need, be it conscious or unconscious, for freedom, companionship and contrast to everyday life.
In the fall of 2017, we created our first common project, the Bonfire Session, and you were all a part of it … and the story continues after 2018 in 2019. After all, is there anything better than a campfire, harmonious music and a hot meal in the setting of a snowblanketed landscape? Or in spring at the Lugi Creek where we tried out our canal grills in an early sommer atmosphere and danced accompanied by a sweet indie folk sound of our dutch friends until late midnight. How will our story continue? One is for sure: You can be curious and be part of writing the next chapter.
BE PART OF THE BONFIRE COMMUNITY
The Bonfire Community is a young, trendy, Swiss cultural format held outdoors with campfire ambiance and was started for the first time in autumn 2017. The very positive feedback to Bonfire Community has convinced us to continue. Within the scope of a concert series, we will again welcome selected musicians to our campfire in 2019, the so called «Bonfire Out in the Woods», as we like to call it.
The focus of these events are you, who make up the «Bonfire Community». There will be a gathering of people, who would otherwise possibly never have met, in order to contemplate and philosophize about the more and less important things in life and to share the common experience of selected musical presentations. An opportunity for old stories, new ideas and adventure in a natural environment.
Around a campfire, in a natural atmosphere, a broad public will experience «hands-on» culture with unplugged concerts, a touch of adventure and freedom and good conversations. We deliberately turn to a broad public and will keep the events as authentic and simple as possible. Our meals will be prepared over the fire. The events shall be self-supporting; this is why there will be a contribution to the musical presentations, meals and beverages.
