Festival Septembre Musical Montreux-Vevey

From 18th to 30th September 2021

From 18 to 30 September 2021, sway to the beat
of the Septembre Musical Montreux-Vevey festival,
a 75th edition dedicated to Switzerland’s rich cultural heritage

Would you like to witness a concert of exceptional quality? In an idyllic setting framed by Lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps? While letting yourself be seduced by our guest country’s culture? Take a look at our programme, which shines a spotlight on Switzerland’s best artists and emerging talents in a variety of fields.

In order to bring culture to as many people as possible, we have decided to significantly lower the price of concert tickets by an average of 20% and to maintain the CHF 10 ticket price for young people, across all seat categories.

In these strange times, we felt that now more than ever it was necessary to showcase the richness and diversity of our country’s cultural heritage. Our festival dedicated to Switzerland and every one of its citizens will be celebrated in the strictest compliance with the health measures in force at the end of September. On June 23, the Federal government announced long awaited and welcomed ease of the restrictions which will facilitate your visit to the festival. The festival requires a valid Covid certificate (from 16 years old) as well as an identity document to access the concerts. Please click here for further information. Furthermore, if the festival has to be postponed/cancelled, your tickets will be fully refunded.

So don't delay, it’s time to make your choice !
