The Irish Openair Music Festival Toggenburg was born
Peter Tanner, head of the organization committee of the Irish Openair Music Festival Toggenburg, had the idea of organizing an Ireland themed music festival many years ago. The Raiffeisenbank Obertoggenburg celebrated its 100th anniversary in the year 2008. For that occasion, they donated some money to the Tourist Board Nesslau. With that donation, the idea of an Irish music festival could be realized.
