YOUNG STAGE is the biggest circus festival in Switzerland, it belongs to the most important festivals worldwide and to the top-class events in Switzerlands’ calendar of events.

Circus festivals, which offer a platform, are very popular events in the international circus and show community. YOUNG STAGE is one of the best in its field. It has made a name for itself nationally as well as internationally in terms of world class performances of young artists, its state of the art show, the highly professional organization and especially the true heart and soul which comes with it. The mission is to offer a platform to young professional artists from all over the world to present their work, to get the contemporary circus developed in general, to enable networking and to inspire the next generation (kids and teenagers).

Each year the show is also used as a tv-broadcast which is aired on SAT.1 (Schweiz), SRF – Swiss Radio & Television, Telebasel and other tv-channels.

At the gala show the artists have the chance to win various awards and engagements in circus- & show productions in Switzerland and Europe. There are hundreds of artist applications each year. Many international showproducers, directors, agents and bookers travel to Basel, to discover new talents at the YOUNG STAGE festival.
