Festival Route 66

The Route 66 in Aarburg, Switzerland, offers a gripping combination of legendary music and historical vehicles. On 1, 2 and 3 September 2017, the “Städli” is the centerpiece for American life culture of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Cult bands like The Desperados, Kat Men, Scotty Baker, The Go Getters or The Jets are on the agenda. In between Rollergirls on their skates to the oldtimers and become so beautiful Fotomotive. Over the past year, more than 20,000 spectators were present.

The event is organized by the Oldies Club Switzerland. Attila Tüzün: “We have a couple of freaks in the club who have restored the oldtimers and loved the Route 66, and have already taken it several times. Over time, many ideas have gathered together, such as roller skates with authentic petticoats and roller skates as of this time. The goal was to feel like a different time during the festival. We were able to implement our ideas at this festival with the support of the municipality of Aarburg “. A full year of preparation lies behind the 15 members who are supported by 150 volunteers during the event.

Aarburg is a quiet place in Switzerland. To Zurich it is only half an hour, in the larger towns Aarau and Olten only a few minutes. Since the last year, the place from the Middle Ages has revived itself in oldtimer circles. Aarburg and oldtimer – that has tradition. Already in the 60s one met here with historical automobiles. At that time came the oldtimers from all over Switzerland, the Alsace, from Heidelberg and Freiburg in the Black Forest.
