Already for 15 years people have counted on Open Season to dance all night long. Throughout their band history, they have played over 600 concerts and appeared on stage at Gurten, Paléo Festival, Open Air St. Gallen, Chiemsee Summer and Mighty Sounds Festival. They have released 7 albums and 5 EPs, were contested as Best Live Act at the Swiss Music Awards and travelled twice around the world on live tours.
Over the years their music has evolved and become more electronic from Ska and Reggae to Rocksteady and Dancehall. Today they are more inspired by acts like Major Lazer and M.I.A.
In spring 2016 Open Season started a new chapter. To celebrate the upcoming European Soccer Championship 2016 they join forces with the popular striker of the Bernese football club Young Boys YB, Guillaume Hoarau. Hoarau used to play with Paris St-Germain; he scored the decisive goal at their cup victory in 2010 and played five international games for France. Since summer 2014 he is with YB. This season he has appeared in 13 games, having scored 10 goals and made 6 assists so far. Besides football, Hoarau’s passion is music. He first joined Open Season on stage in summer 2015, and now they are teaming up again.
«Stand Together (Tous Ensemble)» is the song that kicks off the 2016 summer soccer games. It’s an ode to team spirit and the solidarity of people from near and far, an invitation to dance in the streets and celebrate warm summer nights. It’s also a statement of fearlessness. Open Season delivers the energy and contagious rhythm and Guillaume Hoarau contributes a chorus that stays in heads and hearts. May the summer be long, the games spectacular and the unity borderless!
