MON­TREUX JAZZ FES­TI­VAL, SWITZER­LAND

Good Health (Australia) - - Well Travelled -

The Mon­treux fes­ti­val be­gan more than 50 years ago as a pure jazz fes­ti­val, but evolved over time to in­clude blues, soul, Brazil­ian and rock. Tom Jones, Usher, Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, Solange and feel­good favourite Lukas Gra­ham were among the stand­outs in 2017.

Held over two weeks at this pretty lake­side town, tick­et­ing is per event rather than for the full fes­ti­val, and prices are steep but there are some no­table free events, such as the Parmi­giani Jazz Piano Solo Com­pe­ti­tion. mon­treux­jaz­zfes­ti­val.com
