Montreux Jazz Festival
Montreux Jazz Festival information
Montreux’ best-known fest, established in 1967, lasts two weeks in July. Free concerts take place daily, but tickets cost anything from Sfr75 to Sfr240 for bigger-name gigs. Music is not just jazz; The Strokes, Sting, Arcade Fire, BB King, Paul Simon and Deep Purple (with their big comeback gig in 2011) have all played here.
