Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis
DEAR MUSIC & CONCERT FANS

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

Concert

Born in Nigeria, Jacob Banks moved to Birmingham in England at the age of 13. Not short of talent, the Brit dabbled in all forms of the creative arts and began singing, playing guitar, and writing songs at the age of 20.

A music lover first and foremost, Banks got his start at open mic nights and quickly garnered a following for his commanding vocal presence and daringly intimate songwriting. His music features richly textured beats, with its 808s and synth play, African inspired grooves and a soulful disposition that culminates in an unstoppable new sound. Known for constructing songs that blur genres, packed with the emotional punch of poignant lyrics and a dynamic, spellbinding vocal delivery, Jacob Banks is cementing himself as one of 2017's most promising break-out acts.

'The Boy Who Cried Freedom', which received wide critical acclaim, includes powerful singles like 'Unholy War,' and smash hit, 'Chainsmoking,' which TIME Magazine listed as one of the best songs of 2017 so far. Nylon Magazine raved that the project "gives equal shine to Banks" voice and songwriting skills, highlighting his mastery of metaphors and imagery akin to that of a verified, contemporary poet." Billboard Magazine says that "it's five tracks are an arresting aural image of America's muddy ghosts warped through the filters of modern electronics...'The Boy Who Cried Freedom' is plain, old-fashioned, great music. It resonates in your head and your soul."

With both singles released from the EP thus far reaching #1 on Hype Machine's overall chart, Banks has further been spotlighted as one of 2017's brightest newcomers by the likes of The FADER, Complex, TIME Magazine, Paper Magazine, Interview Magazine, High Snobiety, Clash, Teen Vogue, OkayPlayer, i-D and more.

Following the release of 3 critically-acclaimed EPs, Jacob Banks announced his eagerly-awaited debut album "Village", to be released November 2nd via Interscope Records.
