Live Music

Harley Days 2024 - Main stage

Harley Days provides plenty of live music to entertain the leather-clad crowd. The tourist office square becomes a concert venue with a vast arena-style stage, often featuring big-name acts. In the past, we’ve been rocked out by Status Quo, Rival Sons, Simple Minds, and Toto. We’re still waiting for the full main stage lineup to be revealed, but we know Harley Days 2024 plays host to “The Dire Straits Experience.” The Dire Straits Experience covers Dire Straits’ greatest hits, and one of its members is Chris White, who was in the original band.

You can expect various acts to play on the large arena-style stage throughout the late afternoon and evening before the headliners. However, you can also enjoy live music at other locations around Morzine, such as the “Harley Bar” in the Carrefour car park. There are often small stages around the village featuring cover bands and even a jamming stage where you can join a band. It has a genuine festival atmosphere but with a difference.

What To Expect From Harley Days 2024

Live music aside, there’s plenty for the Harley-Davidson enthusiast to enjoy. But you don’t have to be a biker to get into the event’s spirit. If you’re considering coming to Morzine between July 11th and 14th, 2024, hoping for a tranquil mountain experience, you may want to visit Morzine at a different time. 10,000 motorbikes and 30,000 people are expected to attend the event this year, so it’s guaranteed to be a loud one. Wherever you are, you can hear the trademark V-twin engine sound at any time of the day or night.

Group Rides

Each day, Harley owners ride together in groups on pre-determined guided routes.

This may be an issue when you arrive or leave Morzine, so it’s essential to get your timing right.

Leather clad Characters

Harley Days attracts many characters from the motorcycling world. They dress according to the Harley-Davidson brand but often add their individual style that grabs your attention, just like their bikes.
