BlueBALLS. The annual summer music festival in Luzern with venues all over the city. This was one of the free shows out in front of the Hotel Schwiezerhof. Perfect for a Friday evening picnic before heading home. Oh, and I have no idea why this festival is called BLUEballs. One can only speculate.

Perhaps they were hosting the Football Club Luzern. Anyway, it was quite a party when they had to dismantle this monstrosity.
