Couleur 3’s Downtown Boogie is the most important hip hop show in Switzerland. It has been on the air since 1999 – the Boogie Squad have been playing an hour of beats every evening for 18 years. Downtown Boogie is also the name of club nights that have been held in Swiss clubs for over 15 years, particularly the D! Club in Lausanne where the crew has a weekly residence. Downtown Boogie has also featured at some of the biggest Swiss festivals, including the Montreux Jazz Festival every year for over 10 years, making it a big event on the hip hop scene in French-speaking Switzerland. The Boogie Squad is loyal to the sound system formula that made their name. The DJs and MCs who appear ensure unbeatable energy – these nights are a classic of Swiss hip hop clubbing.
