 The organiser of the Montreux Jazz Festival has unveiled a new layout for its 58th edition, to be held from 5 to 20 July 2024.

Changes have been made due to construction work on the Convention Centre, which usually hosts the festivalís major shows. The new-look event will include a new main stage, constructed on top of Lake Geneva, and a return to the Casino where the event started in 1967.

The festival will also involve other new lakeside stages, many of them free-to-attend, with an expected attendance of 250,000 across the event.

The new 5,000 capacity stage on the lake will be 35m wide/23m deep/17m high, and feature a sound system provided by Meyer Sound; a partner of the festival for more than thirty years.

With a capacity of 1,300, the Casino Stage will consist of a half-seated and half-standing configuration.

Construction work on the Convention Centre, which usually hosts the festivalís major shows, is scheduled to continue until 2025. The festival is expected to contribute Ä80 million (£69.4m) to the local economy.
