Jazz fans gather for the Montreux Jazz Festival.

The Montreux Jazz Festival is the best-known music festival in Switzerland and one of the most prestigious in Europe. It is held annually in early July in Montreux on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Originally a pure jazz festival, it opened up in the 1970s and today presents artists of nearly every imaginable music style. Jazz remains an important part of the festival. Nowadays the festival lasts about two weeks and attracts an audience of more than 200,000 people.
