Over 10 years ago, a referendum in our city of Biel - Bienne in switzerland granted a municipal loan to make the oldest autonomous youth center in Switzerland fit again for the next generation. In the last years we worked out the rest of the missing money through solidarity parties and events, worked out with different architects & specialists how the Coupole can look like in the future and be used optimally. In an association with base democracy this is not always easy, but we had managed to meet the necessary requirements and received the official go in Summer 2021 for the start of construction works for the month of October 2021.

After intensive construction work and a lot of manpower of the Coupole collective, it seems that the doors can be opened on October 1st 2023 to the "New" Coupole. We are pleased to announce that after the first month of many events in the framework of an opening festival, 1-2-3 Badda dan 2023 - finals of the destination Baddadan Clashes of 2022 & 2023 can be held in the Coupole this year!

Thanks to everybody who was part of the program in couple in the last 10 years! All the shows happened generated a little something to make us step forward in the whole project! #gratefulinthenameofcoupole We’re looking forward for a mad crazy night in our so loved venue! BNC all out!

Coupole is largely responsible that we could carry our brands over the last 20 years to the world and we could offer several artists, bands , dj's & sounds a platform to celebrate the reggae culture in our country!

There will be no pre-sale for this event! Drop us a line so we can add you on the reservations list, valid till midnight!

In a Soundclash participate two or more sounds/sound systems alternating, mostly over several rounds, within a fixed time, their productions, made by singers individualy for the sound, the so-called Dubplates, against each other, which is still heated up by the MCs of the sounds. It's a measure in a musical contest. High point of a Clash is the Dub fi Dub, in which the sounds play alternating song for song their strongest and often rarest Dubplates. Usually are those Dubs in-sung by foundation Singers on foundation Riddims. In a clash with more than two sounds will be a voting after every/some rounds. The Host announce all the sound successively, the public vote with handsigns and noise. The sound with the less votes can’t join the next round. The last sound who will stay in the clash is the winner, the champion, and will get the trophy and the title
