52. Montreux Jazz Festival

From 29th June to 14th July 2018, the annual Montreux Jazz Festival takes place again: a fascinating musical odyssey that has been taking place since 1967 every summer at the idyllic location on Lake Geneva.

Once again, YAMAHA is one of the most valued production partners at the Montreux Jazz Festival. With various grand pianos from model C3X other Diskpiano C6X Enspire up to the magnificent concert grand piano CFX, we can offer the musicians and spectators a great concert experience.

This year's program embedded in the history of rock includes jazz, folk, new R & B sensations, hip-hop or electro. With brilliant artists and fascinating musical contributions Montreux shines again in its full splendor. The Petit Palais is transforming into the House of Jazz! A new headline Festival space, this sumptuous building, the little brother of the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, will spend sixteen days as a two-level venue with a fizzing groove. Care for details, so important in Montreux, gives a profound and intense texture to this lineup.

The festival program includes: Paolo Conte, Rag n’Bone Man, Roosevelt Collier, Mahalia, Billy Idol, Hollywood Vampires, Tamino, Voyouo, Khalid, Jack White, Rone, YAMAHA Artist Jamie Cullum, YAMAHA Artist Chick Corea Trio with YAMAHA Artist Dave Weckl on drums and YAMAHA Artist John Patitucci on bass, …

So we are looking forward to a great festival and a thank you to the MJF-committee for the great cooperation!
