Montreux Jazz Festival has unveiled the programme for the 58th edition of the festival which takes place from 5-20 July 2024 on the Lake Geneva shoreline.

RAYE, Sting, Massive Attack, Kraftwerk, Janelle Monáe, PJ Harvey, Smashing Pumpkins, Jungle, Duran Duran, André 3000, Laufey, Vulfpeck, Tyla, Brittany Howard and Air are among the first names announced for Montreux Jazz Festival 2024.

This year, the festival features a brand-new layout in the town of Montreux due to construction work on the Convention Centre which typically hosts the festival’s main stages. In its place is The Lake Stage, a main stage constructed on the surface of Lake Geneva with the backdrop of the Alps. The festival also returns to the Casino, which is steeped in history, having burned down in the seventies and inspired Deep Purple’s "Smoke on the Water”. The festival has also invited the group back for their tenth performance at Montreux.

Tickets are on-sale from 19 April at 11am via
