Since 2006, the Rock Altitude Festival shook the town of Le Locle each summer. In 2015, for the first time, the festival took place over four days, and that will be the case again this year for your enjoyment! The festival team is doing everything possible to offer unique, diverse and high quality programme. Rock, metal, electro, pop, punk, blues...

There will be something for everyone: BEHEMOTH (black/ death metal from Poland), KADEBOSTANY (electro-fanfare from Switzerland), NEUROSIS (rock post core from USA), ERIK TRUFFAZ QUARTET FEAT. ANNA ARON & SLY JOHNSON (jazz/ hip-hop/ trip-hop from Switzerland), CHELSEA WOLFE (gothic neo folk from USA), and many more.

Rock Altitude Festival is taking place in a covered and heated area, so the weather is not an important point. In short, in good weather or bad weather, the Rock Altitude Festival is the place to spend the weekend! No excuses ;) There is possibility to sleep on site, camping is free, and it has showers and toilets. Only tents are allowed! For motorhomes and other vehicles there is camping La Belle Verte. There will be special access for persons with reduced mobility. A ramp leading to a raised area will be placed behind the main bar.

Organizers are promising good variety of food (churros, hamburgers, waffles, grills... as well Chinese and Italian tastes). Concerning drinks, there will be the main bar (opposite the Main Stage) and a second bar in the Tent Course. At the end of each evening, buses will bring visitors FREE and safely home. It is especially useful for  the tipsy ones, not to drive their own cars!
