About Montreux Jazz Festival
Founded by Claude Nobs in 1967, the Montreux Jazz Festival has since become a landmark event. Not because it draws more than 250,000 visitors, or because those two weeks in Montreux make up one of the best-known events in Europe and beyond, but rather because the Festival has kept its soul intact throughout all this growth. Proximity between the biggest artists and their audiences in concert halls of reasonable capacity and a quality listening experience all combine to produce unique concerts. Montreux has seen historic performances by artists including Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, and Stevie Wonder. From the very beginning, motivated by a peerless commitment to sound quality, the Festival has recorded all its concerts using the latest technologies. This unique collection of audiovisual archives includes more than 11000 hours of live music and has been recognized by UNESCO's Memory of the World Register.
