Montreux Jazz Festival was Cancelled with an Online Alternative

by | May 5, 2020 | Music, Vaud

No Paleo and Montreux Jazz Festival in 2020. Major summer music events in Switzerland were cancelled but their organizers offer an attractive Online alternative.

Because of the fast spreading pandemic of #COVID19 Lake Leman will stay silent in 2020. All the mass events in Switzerland were cancelled as an urgent contra-virus measure taken by the Swiss Government. Social distancing and self-protection at home should help to fight against this new respiratory disease.  


And how it follows from the statement at Montreux Jazz Festival website “It is now impossible for us to consider holding an event on the scale of Montreux Jazz Festival in July, just as it is for our fellow organizers of other summer festivals in Switzerland and around the world. Public health concerns naturally take precedence over all other considerations”.

  • The 45th Paleo Festival will take place in Nyon on 19-25.07.2021.
  • The 54th Montreux Jazz Festival will take place on 2-7.07.2021.

To motivate music fans stay at home and enjoy music Montreux Jazz Festival Team offered 50 concerts online for free including performances of Ray Charles, Wu-Tang Clan, Johnny Cash, Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye, Deep Purple, Carlos Santana, and more.
