Approaching the half-century mark, the Montreux Jazz Festival confirms its commitment to dialogue between musical forms. The lineup for the 49th edition of the Festival has been intricately crafted to provide 16 intense days of musical gatherings, from 3 to 18 July 2015.
In the three principal Festival venues, exceptional duos, brotherly and generational relationships, homages, unique voices, and landmark returns of major jazz, soul, and pop artists dialogue with each other, harmonize, and renew the marquee with a new generation of artists who have much more to show us. This passion for live music is also to be found in surprising locations, on boats, and on trains--creations in exceptional heritage sites ideal for unsurpassed cultural experiences. Montreux is a part of the history of music that is written before your eyes each summer by the artists of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
