Welcome to Montreux

Bright, airy, and convivial: the stamp of Festival founder and local son Claude Nobs is on every square inch of the three distinct spaces of this brand-new fifth Montreux Jazz Café. Adjacent to the lobby of the Palace, Le Lounge, with its private salon ambiance, is the perfect place to enjoy the company of Montreux restidents and visitors from all over the world, any time of the day. To the non-stop rhythms of the greatest ever Montreux Jazz Festival concerts on the big screens, the Montreux Jazz Café reflects the intoxicating environment of the Festival both in its dishes and its décor. Amazing memorabilia is carefully displayed as though in someone’s home: a Jukebox here, and over there the kimono given to Claude Nobs by Freddy Mercury. All over the walls, emblematic photos from a half-century of musical history make this a new tourism destination showcasing artistic and culinary treasures. Finally, with its unbelievable line-up of traditional and exclusive cocktails along with a straightforward, festive menu, Funky Claude’s Bar is not only THE place to gather even in the wee hours, but also the new premier live stage in town.

Lynn Maring
13.12 in Montreux

Lynn Maring played instruments before she started singing – she first picked up a guitar at the age of 7.
She discovered all sorts of rock groups which inspired her to take up the piano and form her first band at the age of 13. Her focus has always been on keeping her music authentic, true to herself and infused with creativity.​
She creates her melancholic rock by combining musical inspiration with moments of feeling blue. She already proved her mettle on stage as singer and guitarist with rock groups Disagony and The Chikitas between 2009 and 2016. Now she’s revealing a hidden side of her personality with this more intimate, developed, languid, yet no less demanding project. Lynn Maring’s world is laid bare.

Jacob Salem
17.01 in Montreux

The meeting between Jacob Salem and André "Somkieta" Courbat, Anglo-Swiss guitarist, marks a turning point for the two artists. This is the beginning of a great human adventure and a close collaboration that offers Jacob the opportunity to find the sound he was looking for and André to put his skills at the service of a music that enthuses him.
Recorded between Burkina Faso and Switzerland, the original compositions are finalized at the mythical Abbey Road Studio in London. The result is a successful blend of Afro-Blues 'n Rock tinted with Pop.
From the royal court to the studio of the legends of rock, through the Ugalese clubs, the extraordinary course of Jacob Salem makes him the ambassador of an ancestral culture revisited, the King of rock Mossi.
