Montreux Jazz Festival 2017

The Montreux Jazz Festival has been around for more than half a century, but it is as strong as ever. For the 53rd edition, the organizers have curated a line-up that will explore current sounds and celebrate timeless legends.

Play. Pause. Forward. The symbols placed at the center of the 2019 posters each reflect the spirit of one of the festival’s venues. Through its stages, the Montreux Jazz Festival celebrates its legends, honors its jazz roots and displays its passion for the trends of tomorrow.

What to expect at the Montreux Jazz Festival

As always, the festival by Lake Geneva will be giving a stage to young talents and established acts. And the program guide reads like a “who’s who” of the music industry: Sir Elton John, Sting, Janelle Monáe, Janet Jackson, Lauryn Hill, The Chemical Brothers, Grace Carter or ZZ Top, among many others.

This year, each venue will be dedicated to one of the symbols. For instance, the Auditorium Stravinski will focus on the timeless, hosting legends with big personalities. The intimate Montreux Jazz Club, on the other hand, will showcase acts where time seems to stand still. And finally, the Montreux Jayy Lab will give us a glimpse of the future by hosting the stars of tomorrow.

What we like so much about the Montreux Jazz Festival is that more than half of the concerts are free of charge. And for those who simply like to feel the vibes without paying the admission, there will be plenty of food stands just outside the festival grounds.
