ongoing free access

Oh Europa is a project about love, spread out over a continent, which goes straight to the heart. For the past two years, Action Hero has been roaming Europe in a motor home converted into a recording studio. With every random encounter on the road, Gemma Paintin and James Stenhouse offer strangers the opportunity to perform love songs of their choice. Now, after having travelled 46,000 km and crossed 33 countries, their collection includes songs in more than 46 languages.


Sing your own love song!
Action Hero invites you to take part in this project by performing your favourite love song as a solo, duo or group. All voices welcome!

Fri August 14 : 5pm > 8pm : Gare CFF Nyon, sortie côté Nord
Sat August 15 : 2pm > 5pm : Plage des Trois-Jetées
