AUDEMARS PIGUET AND THE MONTREUX JAZZ FESTIVAL
Since 2019, Audemars Piguet has been Global Partner of the Montreux Jazz Festival. Creators of exceptional (hi)stories and legendary moments, Audemars Piguet and the Montreux Jazz Festival put heritage and innovation at the heart of their savoir-faire.
The partnership between the two entities stems from a natural evolution extending the Manufacture’s ongoing collaboration and strong relationship with the Montreux Jazz Festival. Since 2010, Audemars Piguet has supported the development of the Montreux Jazz Digital Project, which has enabled the digitalisation, restoration and preservation of the Festival’s entire sound archives, acknowledged by UNESCO as part of its “Memory of the World.”
Today, Audemars Piguet goes one step further by joining one of the most respected music festivals as Global Partner. This partnership is the perfect interplay of two forward-thinking organisations that make nurturing human talent one of their priorities.
