Glucose Festival began in 2009. Led by a strong organizing committee, the motivation of sixty members of Riaz’s youth society and the valuable cooperation of the villagers, the first edition was an unexpected success.
Thanks to the enthusiasm and this common passion, we have planned a second edition in 2011. Over the years, we have noticed that the Glucose festival in Riaz had its place on Fribourg's cultural scene.
The festival is proud to have welcomed recognized artists as Sonalp, Marc Amon, Carrousel, Soldat Louis, Pony Pony Run Run, Jo Mettraux, Stevans ... as well as beautiful and promising discoveries. And so, due to the excellent reputation the event has built, it will be able to expand further.
Spectators enjoy a spacious party area outside without having to fear the rain. Indeed, it is covered with a canteen of about 4’300 sq ft. The outdoor stage is well utilized: concerts from 11:30 am until 9:00 pm, demonstrations of dance and music schools of the region express their creativity and talent.
The primary intention of this open-air stage is to discover artists from the region of the canton of Fribourg. Furthermore, Saturday and Sunday, doors open from 11:30 am and entrance is free until 6:00 pm. Therefore, the festivities are accessible to all.
The inside stage is reserved to headliners. A terrace allows the audience to have a clear view of the stage and so be able to enjoy the concert, even from the back of the auditorium.
The aim of the festival is to provide to the people a program which reflects the current musical landscape. So that fun, friendliness and good mood remain the principal memories of this great adventure.
