After cancelling two editions due to Covid, the festival returns to the shores of Switzerland’s Lake Geneva with live performances from July 1 to 16.

In addition to the two venues – the Auditorium Stravinski and the Montreux Jazz Lab – this year’s festival will feature its “beating heart” in the form of a Lake House venue.

“This large three-story residence will play host to ten enthralling rooms, each offering a unique experience. Open 24 hours a day, the public will be able to wander freely, enjoying unique experiences ranging from the musical, visual, educational or technological. With bars and lounges on each floor, this large house will be a perfect place to enjoy the festival in a lively and intimate setting,” the organizers said in a press release about the new venue.

Ticket sales for the general public began on Thursday at noon.
