All week

Each year Montreux Jazz Festival showcases free concerts, DJ sets, and activities, from noon to 5 am! Pool parties, silent discos, open-air concerts, jam sessions, workshops, and all-night electro events: which one will you pick?

It’s that time of year again – Festival de la Cité is completely free for the audience and includes theatre, visual arts, dance performances, acrobatics, live music, and kids’ shows. Don’t miss this annual urban and contemporary festival running from Tuesday until Sunday.
