The Cully Jazz Festival
Jazz goes around the world in 9 days!
As it has done every spring for 32 years now, the Cully Jazz Festival offers you a voyage around the world to experience every form of jazz! For a week, a small village in the Lavaux region is transformed into a cosmopolitan jazz metropolis forging links with all four corners of the globe.
Big jazz names
The festival will once again be rolling out the red carpet for some big jazz names with a proven track record, such as Randy Weston, Robert Glasper, Marc Ribot and Avishai Cohen. There will also be a range of new soul divas, including Akua Naru.
For those aged over 18… every night from 10pm, like the top clubs the Next Step is opening its doors free of charge both for lovers of DJ nights or electronic music and for festival-goers who want to experience Cully Jazz into the small hours.
The festival off
While Cully Jazz opens itself up to the world thanks to the internationally-renowned artists who frequent the Chapiteau marquee, the Festival OFF looks inward to Switzerland by offering 13 warm and atmospheric venues where traditional jazz mingles with the avant-garde. More than 70 free concerts are available to interested festival-goers and jazz lovers, bringing together local artists and those from German-speaking Switzerland.
Furthermore, trains and a Lausanne-Cully shuttle service are available day and night if you take the opportunity to tour Lausanne. You can also find budget-friendly accommodation (backpackers, youth-oriented hotels etc.).
