The VIP tent welcomes over a thousand connoisseurs with treats for the eyes and palate, tastefully orchestrated by the chefs of Gstaad Palace who prepare gourmet meals for guests. The long awaited Saturday Gala Night, organised in the VIP tent, remains one of the highlights of the event. Among the entertainers, Silvan Zingg, one of the greatest Boogie-Woogie pianists in Europe will be sure to get guests up on their feet.
