A first for Switzerland in the skies above Lake Zurich
Zurich provided the party, we provided the drones: The Züri Fäscht attracts millions of visitors every year, and in 2019, those in attendance were treated to a dazzling display as the city hosted Switzerland’s first public drone show. In a stunning spectacle made possible by the Elektrizitätswerk der Stadt Zürich (ewz), a smart swarm of 150 drones took to the night skies in close formation, creating wonderful 3D images with an array of patterns and colours, all set to music.
Over the course of seven minutes, the specially developed choreography saw the drones display iconic Züri Fäscht images before transforming them into symbols of wind, water and solar energy. The aim was to underline the connection between Switzerland’s largest fair and electricity from sustainable energy sources: just like the ewz-sponsored drone show, the Züri Fäscht is powered by 100% green energy – a fact we highlighted to great effect with a large-scale out-of-home and social-media campaign in the city of Zurich.
