The Cargo Bike Band is looking for new members!
Whether you are a musician, engineer, dancer, actor, painter or circus artist, come and join our 2021 summer tour in the Alps and work on our creations for the EPFL public!

The Cargo Bike Band (CBB) is a troupe of artists, engineers and creators on bikes. During the year, the collective works at EPFL to construct new creations and give original performances on campus. Every summer, the group goes on tour in the Swiss and French Alps, spreading good artistic vibes on their way.

We are building sustainable and eco-friendly creations and performances. Indeed, we only travel by bicycle, a silent and low-polluting mode of transport. No “tour bus” or van ! During the construction phase of our installations, we also put great attention on the choice of materials and the energy saving of our audio system. But it is mostly through our contact with the public during our Disco Soupes, velorutions and concerts in ZADs, ecovillages or farms that this message is being carried.

Join us!
