Swiss Music Charter

The «Swiss Music Charter» is an agreement on working with the Swiss music industry and it was renewed in 2016

With the charter, we commit to including a fair proportion of Swiss-produced music in our radio programmes. We usually exceed the benchmarks set by our partners each year for the amount of Swiss music to be featured.

To promote Swiss music against the backdrop of changing media consumption habits, we are extending our efforts to television and online portals, thus ensuring that Swiss musicians are being heard and up-and-coming talent is being given a chance to develop.

Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) plays a leading role in the music festival Label Suisse, which takes place in Lausanne every two years. Another biennial event is the Schubertiade classical music festival, which is organised by RTS in a different location.

«SRG is a reliable partner for promoting Swiss music – not only as far as radio stations are concerned,
but also in terms of its entire range of programmes.»
