Switzerland's Montreux Jazz Festival has unveiled the line-up for the 55th edition of the festival, which includes Arlo Parks, Woodkid, Nubya Garcia and more.

After confirming the dates for the 55th edition of the festival back in March and revealing plans for the 2021 hybrid event, the line-up for this year's Montreux Jazz Festival has been announced.

Arlo Parks is due to headline the main stage on 15 July, and other names including Woodkid, Rag'n'Bone Man, Priya Ragu, Oklou, Nubya Garcia, Steam Down, Alfa Mist, Nubiyan Twist, Yussef Dayes Trio, Fatoumata Diawara and more have also been confirmed.

Montreux Jazz Festival's 55th edition is due to take place from 2-17 July, and for the first time ever a stage will be constructed on Lake Geneva 25 metres from the shore, with a maximum capacity of 600 seats along the shoreline.

There will also be three other stages with a smaller capacity hosting jazz concerts, workshops, sessions and more in the event spaces and gardens of the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace hotel.

Due to COVID-19, the capacity will be limited for the physical festival, but will also be available internationally as a digital event.

Montreux Jazz Festival 2021 takes place from 2-17 July in Switzerland. Visit for more information. Tickets go on sale 8 June.
