Montreux Jazz Festival

The Montreux Jazz Festival reinvents itself for the 55th edition!

Mar 31, 2021

The 55th Montreux Jazz Festival is set to go ahead, from 2 to 17 July 2021.

The format of the 55th Festival will be more intimate, based around its core values of conviviality and musical excellence, set among the lake, mountains and Belle Époque architecture of Montreux.

Taking into account the current guidelines of the Swiss authorities and the uncertainties surrounding this year’s summer season, the Festival has completely reimagined its format. In a Festival first, a stage will be constructed entirely on the lake, with a maximum capacity of 600 seats. Three other stages with a smaller capacity, located in the event spaces and gardens of the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace hotel, will host jazz concerts, jam sessions, workshops and more.

The line-up will be announced in May, along with access and ticketing details.
