The Montreux Jazz Festival today launched its second series of NFTs as part of its partnership with OneOf. The ‘Diamond Seated Package’ NFTs unlock exclusive hospitality offers during the 56th edition of the Festival for concerts including Diana Ross, Björk and John Legend. The artwork was created by New York artist Alex Alpert.
The Montreux Jazz Festival continues its exploration into the world of NFT with the new limited edition ‘Diamond Seated Package’. The package provides exclusive hospitality offers during the Festival, in addition to a unique visual work created by New York artist Alex Alpert.
For my MJF work, I wanted to pay tribute to the festival’s legendary history and location, as well as reference the ground-breaking musicians performing there. I drew the design in a stream-of-consciousness style while listening to the music of the six artists featured in the collection. If you look closely at the design, you’ll find subtle references to the artists and their work.Alex Alpert
