Dany Hassenstein

Talent Buyer,
Paleo Festival
A childhood in a small family hotel in the heart of the Swiss Alps and several years of training in hotels all over the world brought Dany Hassenstein to study management at the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, in Switzerland. The appeal of music and his interest in organizing all kinds of events made him travel after university to finally join, in 2008, Paléo Festival Nyon, the always-sold-out biggest cultural open air event in Switzerland. First in charge of the entire artistic production, Dany is since 2009 board member and talent buyer of the whole international acts to perpetuate a tradition since 1976, booking bands such as Depeche Mode, Neil Young, The Strokes, Jack Johnson, The Who, Sting, Björk, Nick Cave, Blur, Phoenix, Arctic Monkeys, P!nk, Robert Plant, Ravi Shankar, Ben Harper, Justice, Massive Attack, Mika, The Cure, Manu Chao, R.E.M., Fatboy Slim, Franz Ferdinand, Moby, Placebo, The Prodigy or Tracy Chapman and making Paléo Festival Nyon a major European event.
