Results

Competition 1

In 2018, a character named Dave sang on the Grande Scène. The man in questions was:

  • Dave Gahan, charismatic lead singer of Depeche Mode.
  • Dave, the French artist. How wonderful to hear strains of "Vanina" on the Asse site!
  • David Hasselhoff, aka "The Hoff". So much cool attitude in a single human being, it’s unbelievable!

Competition 2

What year marked the founding of "Paléo Arts & Spectacles", the non-profit organisation still in charge of the organisation of the Festival?

  • Roughly three million years B.C. After a lengthy period of debate, it seems that an Australopithecus people chose this name in honour of their diet. (Vegan Arts & Spectacles doesn’t have the same ring about it).
  • In 1974. In those days, the association organised concerts in Nyon, before setting off on the First Folk Festival adventure in 1976.
  •  This association does not actually exist. Everyone knows that the Festival is organised by a masonic lodge and is used to launder money from drug dealing.

Competition 9

What happened at Paléo in 2005?

  • In collaboration with SeaWorld, the Festival presented the aquatic show "Dolphins are so cute!” followed by "Please don’t throw your kids to the killer whales".

Competition 10

Paléo and the HES-SO have been partners in innovation since 2005! What do they do?

  • Organise a vast open-air laboratory, which each year hosts an original and spectacular space for festivalgoers.
