Leysin is reputed for its celebrations and music festivals, but sports events are also on the increase.
A whole generation of festivalgoers has wonderful memories of the rock anthology concerts in Leysin. Several years later, rock was replaced by electro music, but the festive spirit prevails. During the Worldwide Festival, the rhythm and the shouts of joy fill the bars on the slopes and in the resort. Amateur and professional sports competitions always attract crowds. In winter people are delighted to watch cross-country skiing or dog sledding competitions. In summer, works of art take to the mountains to be exhibited.
