... and as everyone else involved behind the scenes. Unfortunately, there are too many people on the list to name them individually, but they remain an integral part of the team. Whether they are paid staff members, volunteers or service providers, every little thing they do contributes to making the Festival what it is today.

Festival de la Cité Foundation

The Festival is managed by a private foundation: the Festival de la Cité Foundation.

The Governing Board, chaired by Ms. Loïka Lorenzini, is comprised of a maximum of nine members representing cultural and economic sectors, the canton of Vaud and the city of Lausanne.

Ms. Martine Chalverat has been the Festival Director since September 2022.

The program is born from the vision and construction of a four-member team, whom are highly experienced in the arts and culture industries. The team also benefits from a large support network of external expertise.

The extended office consists of a team of 19 managing specific areas: festival development, administration and finances, programming, production, technical aspects, communication, food and beverage and staff.

Before, during and after the Festival, about 350 people work together to ensure that the event runs smoothly. The majority of the staff are paid.
