Jazz It Up With A Queer Lineup On #MJF2023!

Hold on to your hats, music lovers, because the Montreux Jazz Festival is back with a bang! From June 30 to July 15, 2023, the 57th edition of the Montreux Jazz Festival will light up our summer with an extraordinary queer and feminist lineup. That's the music event of the year, and you won't want to miss it...

With an electrifying program featuring some of the hottest names in the industry, this festival promises to be the ultimate music extravaganza. The queer ball will be opening up on Tuesday, July 4th, with the one and only Lil Nas X.

What sets the Montreux Jazz Festival apart is its commitment to showcasing diverse voices and perspectives. This year, we had the pleasure to discover a multitude of LGBTQIA+ established stars and up-and-coming talents from the world of pop, rap, jazz, and rock, such as Cavetown, Gayle & Caroline Polachek (July 3rd), Sam Smith, Redcar (July 5th), Juliette Armanet (July 9th), Wet Leg & Idles (July 10th), Ava Max (July 12th), Gabriels (July 13th), Janelle Monàe (July 15th), and more! By featuring many queer artists in the lineup, the festival is sending a powerful message of inclusivity and acceptance.

Everyone knows that the Montreux Jazz Festival is not just a music festival; it's a celebration of diversity and culture. The festival's stunning location on the shores of Lake Geneva only adds magic to the event, making it a must-see for music lovers and festival-goers alike.

So grab your friends and dive into the lake to live the unique experience of the Montreux Jazz Festival! See you there!
