Montreux Jazz Festival 2021


After the Autumn of Music event last October, the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation (MJAF) returns to the Montreux Palace to hosts its summer of music!


The Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation (MJAF) is a recognized non-profit that supports the next generation of artists and encourages exchanges through the universal language of music. Founded in 2007, the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation pursues two core objectives: discovering and nurturing talented musicians in the early stages of their careers and making music accessible to all.

Year-round, the MJAF generates powerful discoveries and encounters through its artistic residencies, its cultural activities, and its talent-development programs.
