The 2019 Youth Culture Festival (JKF)

Verein Neues JKF (the New Youth Culture Festival Association)

On 6 and 7 September, the biggest birthday party of the year is set to hit Basel city centre, as this year marks the biennial Youth Culture Festival’s (JKF) 22th anniversary and 11th edition of the event. Since the festival was first organised in 1997, the JKF has evolved into one of Switzerland’s largest free festivals. It now delights around 60,000 visitors every two years and is a key event in the Basel cultural calendar.

Youth culture is once again set to dominate the public sphere for two whole days. In addition to the platforms in Basel city centre, there will be stages in the Literaturhaus Basel house of literature, Theater Basel, Unternehmen Mitte coffee shop, Bird’s Eye Jazz Club and the Elisabethenkirche church. All events are free of charge.
