Just in: Verbier Festival suffers 10 percent dropmain
With all the stubs now counted, the Verbier Festival reckons that it sold 30,000 tickets, 3,000 down on last year.
Worse, almost two-fifth of the tickets were sold during the festival itself, which is a bit last-minute for sound financial planning.
Festival organisers blame the strong Swiss franc for the downturn.
Online, the Valery Gergiev concert beat previous viewing records with 34,000 hits.
