After Golf Festival
New in 2018, After Golf Festival: concerts and animations with the players in the centre of Crans-Montana under the big circus top!
In order to extend the days in music and in a relaxed atmosphere, the Omega European Masters invites you to the heart of Crans-Montana in a green setting under the circus tent, to enjoy magnificent concerts. The entrance is free and there will be drink and food available.
An eclectic program awaits you with surprises including John Daly who will trade his clubs for his guitar for an inflamed showcase. The “SwissPass Battle” competition will be held for the players; the challenge is to determine which of these professional golfers have the most “swissitude” in them. They will be challenged in playing the alphorn, raclette scarping under the expertise of Eddy Baillifard and pretending to be like William Tell.

18:30 - THE ECHOES OF DJANGO (Gypsy Jazz)
Resulting from the varied backgrounds of these three experienced musicians, the band's music conveys through the compositions and standards of Django Reinhardt all the rhythmic and sonorous richness of the string trio.
20:30 - WILDTRAMP (Supertramp Cover Band)
Wildtramp uses exclusively the titles of Supertamp's double CD "Live in Paris 79". The band seeks to reproduce the sounds, solos, harmonies, atmospheres and sound effects in the conditions of the live performance as recorded in 1979. This should certainly remind connoisseurs, and other fans, to their good memories.

The exciting music of WaveGuards; an alchemy of pop, electro and acoustic creates an intimate atmosphere including the powerful and moving voice of Sophie. Her warm and intense tone is revealed thanks to a great vocal mastery, and is not unlike that of the great Adele or the young Marina Kaye. Their hands and voices create an authentic universe where emotion and sharing are at the rendezvous.
19:00 - SWISSPASS BATTLE (Which pro player is the most Swiss?)
A big challenge for professional golf players: demonstrate through several challenges how to become the most Swiss pro player of the tournament!

20:30 - GIUFÀ (Sicilian Rock)
When a band of Sicilian rockers adept of Mediterranean and Balkan music decides to take them back with their style, the result is simply amazing. In a gypsy-punk energy to raise the grandmothers on the village’s benches, Giufà takes us under the hot sun of the Balkans, Maghreb or Syracuse with melodies inspired by both the Sicilian tarantella and the Spanish rumba or Afro-Cuban. Exploding!
