Hi! This is Julian from the 0540s, a Vaud-based rock band. We’re touring in Britain this coming February, bringing you a portion of the Swiss culture you may have been missing from home.

Our 0540 Time in the UK tour starts in Camden, London, on February 18th. Then we travel to Coventry on February 19th, followed by a show in Manchester’s Northern Quarter on February 22nd.

We then play in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, on February 24 and finish off our tour in Coalville, Leicestershire on February 26.

More details on the tour venues and tickets are available via our website:
https://www.0540s.com/tour

Our band’s membership is international, including two Swiss musicians. We love writing songs inspired by our lives in the beautiful Montreux area, but we believe our music deserves a wider audience.

So, we’re touring for the first time in the home of some of the world’s most iconic rock and indie bands. We’d love to see you at our shows. Make sure you tell your friends, families and business contacts in the UK, and please share this post on social media.

Listen to our music via our website, or on Spotify.
