The Festival da Jazz might not be as well-known as its “big brother” in Montreux, but it has grown into a pretty decent and prestigious festival.
And this year, it is celebrating the 10th anniversary! With the stage at Muottas Muragl being at 2453 meters above sea, this is also the highest club jazz festival in Europe.
Festival da Jazz from July 5 to 31, 2017
This year, there will be more than 50 shows in and around St. Moritz. As a small token of appreciation for the support these past 10 years, many of the concerts will be for free.
Among others, this year’s lineup includes: Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles, Lee Ritenour & Dave Grusin, Franco Ambrosetti, Cilia Hunch, Jamie Cullum, Chick Corea & Bella Fleck, The Earth Wind & Fire Experience feat. The Al McKay All Stars and Herbie Hancock.
Be prepared to be blown away by this festival! That’s not only because of the great artists on the program, but also because of the absolutely breathtaking views you will enjoy up in the Swiss mountains…
