Surrounded by 38 four-thousand-meter peaks and at the foot of the world-famous, pyramid-shaped Matterhorn, lies the small, idyllic community of Zermatt. The car-free mountain resort is located in the canton of Valais in Switzerland at about 1,600 meters above sea level. The Matterhorn village gives insight into the traditional life of the mountain people and at the same time shows the modernity of the resort town. The imposing mountain scenery bestows something magical to the village and is a popular holiday destination for both winter sports and summer hiking.

The Valais mountain village, the mountain landscape, the diverse cuisine and the unique atmosphere in Zermatt inspired the festival's founders, Thomas Sterchi and Marco Godat, to create a festival in this magical place: Zermatt Unplugged.
