Montreux to Miami, the tradition and magic continues!

The Montreux Jazz Festival takes place for two weeks every summer in Switzerland, on the shores of Lake Geneva. Created in 1967 by Claude Nobs and directed by Mathieu Jaton since 2013, the Montreux Jazz Festival has become over the years an essential event, generating fantastic stories and legendary performances. Nearly 250,000 spectators come to the Festival every year, enjoying a breath-taking setting, concerts with renowned acoustics and many free stages.

Montreux Jazz Festival celebrates the industry’s emerging and contemporary acts, whilst paying homage to music’s legendary acts. Originally a pure jazz festival since inception in 1967, Montreux began showcasing other styles of music throughout the decades and today presents artists from across every genre imaginable. Artists that have graced the stage of Montreux include Etta James, Quincy Jones, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Aretha Franklin, David Bowie, James Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Leonard Cohen, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis, Nina Simone and many more.

To recreate the intimacy of Montreux, the inaugural edition of the Montreux Jazz Festival Miami will be primarily hosted in the 1500-person Hangar in Coconut Grove. The waterfront venue provides an up-close opportunity to see headline performances by Jon Batiste & Friends, Daniela Mercury, Daryl Hall and many more. Festival goers will also experience sunset concerts featuring emerging artists, the Legendary Montreux Jam Session and curated dining options from some of Miami’s best restaurants.
