Hotels and campsite already under attack! After the resounding success of the previous edition (summer 2009), Morzine Harley Days should beat all records!

Big engines, polished chrome, shining bodywork and eagles on backs, Morzine Harley Days is not just the rendezvous for the hard-core and the tattooed, but also a party for all types of people. Lovers of beautiful small roads meet up with holidaymaking families and the curious for three days of trips, acrobatics, tests, and the brand’s full range…and music!

With free concerts every day, and an exceptional evening with Status Quo, Morzine Harley Days has become a real musical rendezvous, where guitar riffs echo with the purring of engines.

Status Quo in concert – free!

With a career spanning 40 years and phenomenal success, 130,000,000 discs sold, 5500 concerts on stages all over the planet and continuously packed stadia, with millions of fans: Status Quo are the leaders in the genre… In the «Army Now», «Whatever You Want», and dozens of other gold discs in France and Great Britain, we can all remember one of their classic, efficient, and unforgettable guitar riffs!

After the release of their compilation album (Pictures, 2008 – Universal), and the triumphant tour in 2010, the famous British foursome, founded in 1967, will play at Morzine Harley Days this summer!

Exceptional and free concert, at the Tourist Office square, Saturday the 16th of July.

The day before, the charismatic Johnny Gallagher, recognised as one of the best British guitarists, will have set the stage alight, followed by the group Point Blank, considered on a par with ZZ Top as one of the best southern rock groups. Atmosphere guarantee with all these renowned artists!

And like a good rock fairy overseeing the event, this year the rally’s godfather will be a reference in the world of music: Philippe Manoeuvre, Chief Editor of Rock & Folk magazine.
