Forró Basel hosts one of the biggest Forró communities in Switzerland.
There are several Forró events happening on a monthly and weekly basis.
For instance, there is the well-noted Noite de Forró, usually happening the last Saturday of the month, where people from all over Switzerland and southern Germany come together to dance and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the Vereinslokal. Plus, there is regular Forró practice (free dancing) on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Usually, the dancefloor is kept busy by resident DJ Vim Vim, the originator of the Forró Vem Vem movement. That is, when there is none of the many guest DJs or live bands around that have been hosted by Forró Basel during the five years since its creation.
Very important: The Vereinslokal works exclusively through offerings. There is no fixed entry fee, but all the bands, DJs, food and drinks need to be paid with your donation. Please help keeping this unique place alive and working by paying your consumption and contributing fairly and generously to the money pot!
