We can hardly contain our excitement – it’s Montreux Jazz time and WE have tickets to hear Van Morrison and legendary Mavis Staples. We’d be ashamed of gloating, but there are still spots available to this concert and several others, so it’s not too late to join us!

We started the festival off last night with some unexpected tickets to see Passenger and Angus and Julia Stone – thanks a mil to Lausanne-based Blogger Nicola from NexttoNicx who set us up with some tickets yesterday afternoon. The concert was great – but best surprise of all was how Passenger stole our hearts! What a performer! Were any of you there?!?!

Our area is known for its fabulous summer festival schedule, but the Montreux Jazz is the crown jewel. If you’re not interested in a paying concert, you can still participate via the free circuit, which every year features up-and-coming artists that before too long will be common names. Trust us, we kick ourselves every year when we realize that we missed an opportunity to see a new hot band for free the year before.

The Montreux Jazz Program lays out the entire event, free and paying concerts alike.

For a list of paying events and online ticket purchasing…Beware, for some reason the ticket purchasing function keeps reverting to German.

And if free concerts are all you are looking for, visit the list of the free offering.
