Journey & Accomodation

The Festival is taking place in two cities. This arrangement is meant to connect these cities musically and for foreigners to see different parts of Switzerland.

Between Zürich (Friday) and Lucerne (Saturday and Sunday) it's a 1 hour Journey by train or a 40 minutes journey by car.

The Swiss Soca Crew is there to support you on that journey between these two beautiful cities.

Get in touch with us:


The same idea with accomodation. The Swiss Soca Crew and you is one family! Contact us if you need help Hotel, Hostel or also with "Couch Surfing". Check for your hotels near to the venues Gewerbehalle Luzern ond Saturday and Kontiki Zürich on Friday.
It's suggested to spend one night in Zürich (Friday to Saturday) and one to two nights in Lucerne (Saturday to Sunday). Link up with us if you need further instructions.

Arriving and staying in Switzerland

To reach Switzerland we suggest you take a flight to Zürich airport which is well connected to the city of Zürich where the CARIBBEAN CRUISE will start from. 

Have in mind that Switzerland is not using Euros and that the Event venues do not accept payment by card. So change your currency to Swiss Francs (CHF) in advance or use your Credit or Debit Card at one of the money machines to get your cash.

Buying your train ticket (from/to airport, from/to Zürich) is possible by card.
