Launch of the 2020 Fairmont World Tour

Montreux Jazz Festival announces the launch of the 2020 Fairmont World Tour, in partnership with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. From 29 January to 7 March, two artists beloved of the Festival, Jalen N’Gonda and Bobby Bazini, will perform at 13 exceptional destination hotels around the world.

Jalen N’Gonda and Bobby Bazini will offer guests at Fairmont properties a unique experience in the spirit of the Festival. Last year these two talented artists seduced public and professionals alike at their concerts during the 53th Montreux Jazz Festival.


Already in autumn 2018, Jalen N’Gonda, winner of the Montreux Jazz Talent Awards that year, set off on a tour with shows at four of the Fairmont group’s most stylish European hotels. This year, from 29 January to 12 February, he will bring his warm, nuanced soul music to six destinations in Brazil and the United States.
