Summer in music at the Montreux Jazz Festival

Summer in music at the Montreux Jazz Festival


The summer of the festival is progressing towards full speed. The noble Montreux Jazz Festival opens, now in its 57th edition, with 400 concerts in the space of two weeks, with wonderful evenings on the shores of Lake Geneva; and a diversification of great interest in the musical and entertainment offer, presenting from the stars to the musicians of tomorrow. Puglia delle Murge is the theater for the 19th edition of the Locus Festival: from the dazzling white of the lime of the trulli to the very clear pink color of the stone of Trani, from the transparencies of blue of the Adriatic and Ionian seas to the green countryside of the luxuriant Valle d’Itria. The Latin Festival returns to Milan, an immersion for a month in Latin American music and culture.
