La Folia Festival in Rougemont

Launched in 2001 by an impassioned team, the Festival La Folia in Rougemont quickly established itself as a highlight in the calendars of lovers of ancient music … and of festivities. The secret of its success rests on a few basic ingredients:

  • the Saint Nicolas Church: a little jewel of Romaneque architecture built by monks from Cluny in the 11th century
  • an intimate and cheerful atmosphere
  • an idyllic setting in the heart of the Pre-Alps in the Canton of Vaud
  • original concert programmes featuring international as well as upcoming stars
  • a circle of friends of eminent artists who look forward to returning to Rougemont
  • on organization based completely on volunteer work … and great enthusiasm!

Headed by an association founded on 29 June 2000, the Festival’s organization is led by three key persons:

Sonia Lang – general secretary

Jean-Michel Chabloz – president / harpsichord maker

Antonin Scherrer – artistic director / writer
