Welcome to Geneva

The Geneva Montreux Jazz Café, located in the Arrivals Hall of the airport, was the very first to open its doors in June 2008. It was fully renovated in April 2016 and welcomes you in an even more elegant setting.
A product of one of Festival founder Claude Nobs’ innumerable creative bursts, this Café has always been all about music and fine dining based on fresh market produce. Featuring creative cuisine, it grabs you right away whether you are in a hurry or simply waiting for a friend’s flight to arrive. While you spend a little time in this unique space, the Montreux Jazz Café immerses you in the atmosphere and history of one of the largest international events in Switzerland.
Since May 2016, you now have the chance to start your journey with a musical break, a coffee or a meal on the go in the second Montreux Jazz Café in Geneva airport, which will welcome you after the security check.

Sophie de Quay & The WaveGuards
03.10 in Geneva

For two years now, the Sophie de Quay & the WaveGuards band has performed more than 100 concerts throughout the world: Switzerland, France, Belgium, Romania, Spain, Lebanon, New York and even South-East Asia. Thanks to their audacity, sensitivity, enthusiasm, spontaneity and openness on the world, Sophie, Simon and Tim show their authenticity on stage and rely on Pascal Auberson, their godfather and mentor, to “experiment” their music with them, or on Patrick Bruel who has been following Sophie since the beginning of her musical career. He even recently invited her to join him on stage for a duet during the Caribana Festival!
