Gugge brass band concert Basel



Tuesday evening is all about the Gugge brass bands. At 6.30 pm the «Sternenmarsch» begins - a long procession of Gugge music bands that converge from different directions (hence the name "star-shaped" march) and make their way from the trade fair (Messe) via Clarastrasse to the market square (Marktplatz) or Barfüsserplatz. Large stages are erected there for the musicians to present their songs to the Carnival audience.
