Jazz at home: Montreux festival offers performances online

Apr 04, 2020 09:34 IST

You can experience a jazz festival from the comfort of your home. The Montreux Jazz Festival is giving its audience a chance to experience live performances from iconic artists while sitting at home. The annual event, scheduled to take place between the 3rd and the 18th of July, hosts almost 250,000 music lovers in Montreux in Switzerland. However, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the CEO of the event has decided to put the festival's archive videos online. Viewers will be able to watch almost 50 performances by iconic artists like Nina Simone for free for a period of 30 days. While it is still unclear if the event will take place at the scheduled dates, organisers say this will help brighten the lives of music fans across the world.
