Alphorn players play their instruments and a view of alphorns during the Alphorn International Festival in Nendaz, Switzerland, 28 July 2019.
Alpenhorn blowers from the entire world descend on Nendaz for the International Alpenhorn Festival.
The programme features: an official alpenhorn blowing competition, a trachten parade (featuring folk costumes), concerts, folklore events, village balls and an alpenhorn concert (a band with over 150 alpenhorn players). In short: a true folk festival devoted to tradition.
