With MJF Spotlight, the Festival introduces you to up-and-coming artists year-round! Follow us on social media to enjoy video content, live sessions, playlists and articles every month. Later this year, MJF Spotlight will also evolve into a series of events in different locations in Switzerland, including a special evening each summer at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
“The lack of concerts and festivals has a severe impact on the emergence of new artists. At Montreux Jazz Festival, hundreds of up-and-coming talent usually perform each summer on our various stages. With the launch of MJF Spotlight, we will now be able to promote new talent throughout the year on our digital channels, independently of the Festival line-up.”Mathieu Jaton
