Discourse Forum

Dear members,

We finally managed to setup our CERN MusiClub discourse space along with the other CERN Clubs. You can find it here.

When you create a new post (or topic, as they call it) you can choose between three sub-categories:

  1. Looking for members
  2. Equipment to sell
  3. Gigs and concerts

Feel free to use this space to open ads about finding members, plan jam sessions, forming bands, sell or lend equipment, promote your gigs, etc. Remember that this space is open to any cern account and not only MusiClub members.

And if you have any kind of feedback - to open new subcategories, etc - let us know!

Saturday, 23 July: the Hardronic Music Festival is back!

Hardronic 2022

After a two-year hiatus, the CERN MusiClub is very pleased to announce that the Hardronic Music Festival is back!

For more than 30 years, Hardronic has been an opportunity for CERN staff, students, users and their friends and families to come to the site and enjoy live music, delicious food and cool drinks. This year's edition, featuring nine of the CERN MusiClub's finest bands, will take place on Saturday, 23 July 2022 on the Restaurant 3 terrace on the Prévessin site. Music will start at 3.00 p.m., and there will be lots more on offer to entertain you.

Thanks to the kind support of the CERN Staff Association and Management, entry to the festival is completely free. A regular free shuttle bus will also be provided from the Meyrin site thanks to the SCE department. What's more, 100% of the profits from the bar will support the work of AidforAll, a local charity helping poor communities with basic needs, education and emergency health care in Viet Nam, India, Laos and, most recently, Ukraine.

For more information, please check out the festival website: http://cern.ch/hardronic/

MusiClub re-opening // 07-03-2022

Dear all,

As you may have seen, CERN announced the transition to COVID level 2 (Yellow) as of Monday 7th of March and this means that on-site club activities can be restarted.

It is important to stress that all members must strictly follow the sanitary rules agreed with the HSE COVID taskforce last October to prevent a situation where we are forced to close our doors again. In particular, please note that, despite the easing of rules in Switzerland in recent weeks, CERN still require masks to be worn at all times.

Rules for the LARGE LOCALE:

  • Only club members can use the room.
  • A maximum of 8 people are allowed in the room at the same time.
  • Members have to reserve the slots via the MusiClub Booking System. The reservations will be used for contact tracing in the event of new COVID cases breaking out.
  • All members must use the alcohol solution by the entrance of the locale to disinfect their hands.
  • Everyone (including singers) must wear masks at all times. Used masks should be thrown in the specific bin provided.
  • All singers must use their own microphones.
  • The use of wind instruments (including harmonicas, etc) is forbidden.
  • All members must stand at least 1.5m from each other.
  • All windows must remain opened during the practices.
  • Each band must nominate a responsible person who must make sure that all sanitary rules are respected during the rehearsals.

Rules for the SMALL LOCALE:

  • Only club members can use the room.
  • Only ONE person is allowed in the room - so for solo practices only.
  • Members have to reserve the slots via the MusiClub Booking System. The reservations will be used for contact tracing in the event of new COVID cases breaking out.
  • All members must use the alcohol solution by the entrance of the locale to disinfect their hands.
  • Even though you are alone in the locale, members should wear a mask at all times. Used masks should be thrown in a specific bin close to the entrance of building 52.
  • The use of wind instruments (including harmonicas, etc) is forbidden.
  • As there is no ventilation in the small locale, a new schedule was put in place to comply with CERN COVID rules. The new slots are:
    • 07h-09h
    • 12h-14h
    • 17h-19h
    • 22h-24h
  • Note that the 3h gap between slots is mandatory in order to be compliant with COVID rules. Use of the room during these mandatory gaps may result in unwanted consequences.

All updates on these rules will be informed via email, but you can also check the up-to-date version on the website.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us.

Cheers,
    the MusiClub board,
    Greg, Pedro and Tom
