Brit Award-winners Rag’n’Bone Man and Arlo Parks, and Detroit techno legend Jeff Mills are among the headliners booked for the 2021 edition of Montreux Jazz Festival, slated to roll out across 16 days next month in Switzerland.
Also confirmed to the lineup are Woodkid, Nathy Peluso, Inhaler, the Paradox project of Jeff Mills and Tony Allen, and many more.
Set to take place from July 2-17, Montreux Jazz Festival this year debuts a new stage, Scene Du Lac, on the banks of Lake Geneva.
The festival, one of Europe’s best-known and longest-running live music events, was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
In April of this year, organizers announced plans for the festival’s return, with a limited capacity and its new stage.
Montreux Jazz Festival was established in 1967 by the late jazz connoisseur Claude Nobs. Over time, the event has hosted performances by many of the greats of contemporary music, from Prince to David Bowie, Nina Simone, Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye, Elton John and others.
Tickets for this year’s fest go on sale from June 8 via the Montreux Jazz Festival website.
