The Montreux Jazz Festival is the most famous festival in Switzerland and one of the most prestigious world music events. His history he leads since 1967, takes place every year and lasts just over two weeks. Usually the festival starts in late June – early July. The creator and director of the Montreux Jazz Festival is Claude Nobs. It was he, a fan of jazz, who came up with how to attract more tourists to a quiet and quiet town at the foot of the Alps.
