passion for music

The Festival’s visionary founder Claude Nobs had the idea to systematically film every artist who ever performed on stage since the beginning of the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1967. This archival collection is at the heart of the Montreux Jazz Café concept. Guests enjoy fine dining along with the exclusive experience of legendary concerts on multiple screens all year long. This cultural heritage is so priceless that in 2013 UNESCO decided to include the entire audiovisual collection—which is still growing!—in the “Memory of the World” Register.

You must have heard Hell's Kitchen at least once in your life to feel what blues is, the real one. This group from Geneva has given itself the mission of bringing the blues back to life with industrial sounds and beat rhythms. Five albums and hundreds of concerts in the world some time later, Hell's Kitchen has accumulated media praise and indeed resuscitated the blues!
