The combination of sport and music seems to be tailor-made for the city of Chur. The municipal companies involved and the organiser concluded the big event with a positive balance.
Not only the organizers are very satisfied with the first Big Air in Chur. The municipal companies involved also report that the event ran smoothly. The venue on the Obere Au proved its worth and the rush of around 30,000 visitors was mastered without any major incidents. Chur is an ideal venue for the event.
Peaceful and happy audience
The Chur municipal police gave the organisers and the visitors a very good report. The small number of incidents caused by the Big Air Chur could all be dealt with directly on site. The security partners also reported a peaceful and happy audience. Together with the city police, the cantonal police of Graubünden, the Chur ambulance service, the Samaritans, the Chur fire brigade and the traffic cadets were also on site. Two civilian security services were also present with a large contingent to ensure safety on the square. The feedback from all those involved was positive throughout.
Traffic and cleaning concept a success
The shuttle buses as well as the night service offered by Chur Bus and SBB were actively used and ensured - in addition to the optimal parking situation on Waffenplatz - a smooth traffic situation. The cleaning concept, which is based on so-called Trash Heroes, has proven itself well. During both festival days, many volunteers were on duty for ongoing clean-up work. Accordingly, the cleaning from Friday to Saturday could be carried out according to plan before the first festival visitors arrived on Saturday morning.
Currently the dismantling of the festival is taking place on the Obere Au. For this reason, the parking lot will be completely closed on Sunday, October 24. From Monday, October 25 to Wednesday, October 27, a reduced number of parking spaces will be available on the Obere Au and one-way traffic will be possible from Rossbodenstrasse to Grossbruggerweg. From this date, bus route 2 will also return to its usual stops. From Thursday, 28 October, the car park is expected to be fully open again.
The first Big Air Chur is history - a beautiful story with about 30'000 visitors, nine live concerts, about 20 DJs at the aftershow parties and sensational sportive performances on the kicker. A Big Air that thrilled the festival guests and carried the venue Chur far beyond the Swiss border.Note: This text was translated by machine translation software and not by a human translator.
