Cully Jazz Festival
Jazz goes around the world in 9 days!
This spring, like every other since 31 years, the Cully Jazz Festival offers to take you on a tour of the world and all its jazz! For one week, a small market town in Lavaux is transformed into a cosmopolitan city of jazz, weaving links with every corner of the globe.
The festival will again roll out the red carpet to welcome some of the great names to have graced the history of jazz, including Paolo Fresu & Omar Sosa, Rokia Traoré, Cécile McLorin & Minino Garay and Roberto Fonseca.
For those over 18… every evening from 22.00, like all great clubs, the Next Step opens its doors free of charge, both to fans of DJ entertainment or electronic music and to festivalgoers wishing to enjoy Cully Jazz through to the end of the night.
While the Cully Jazz Festival has a global focus thanks to internationally renowned artists who perform under the big top, the Festival OFF looks inwards into Switzerland and offers 12 sites with a warm ambiance where traditional jazz meets avant-garde. There are more than 70 free concerts on offer for curious festival-goers and jazz amateurs alike, with artists both home-grown and from beyond the Sarine.
And if you were to take the opportunity to discover Lausanne, you would find very reasonable offers on accommodation. A train and a shuttle bus service is available between Lausanne and Cully night and day.
