Montreux Jazz Festival has shared the line-up for its 2024 instalment, with the likes of Kraftwerk, The National and Raye set to perform.

The 58th edition of the prestigious Swiss festival is due to take place on the Lake Geneva shoreline between July 5-20. Tickets go on general sale at 11am BST tomorrow (Friday, April 19) – you’ll be able to buy yours here.

The aforementioned acts will all grace the Lake Stage along with The Smashing Pumpkins, Alice Cooper, PJ Harvey, Justice, Jessie Ware, Massive Attack, Air, Lenny Kravitz, Sting, Janelle Monáe, Michael Kiwanuka, Duran Duran, Paolo Nutini, Soft Cell and more.

Artists for the stage’s opening day are yet to be confirmed.

The Casino Stage programme, meanwhile, “blurs the lines between jazz, afrobeats, pop and rap”. A description adds: “Steeped in musical history, this intimate setting has also proved the ideal stage for established artists to present special, unique projects.

Taking over this venue across the festival will be the likes of Dionne Warwick, André 3000, Paloma Faith, Noname, Mahalia, Brittany Howard, Loreen, D4vd, Tyla and Thee Sacred Souls.

Additionally, former Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will bring his Saucerful Of Secrets project to the Casino Stage on July 13.

“On 21 November 1970, hippies from all over Europe gathered for Pink Floyd’s concert at the Casino,” a press release reads. More than 50 years later, Nick Mason’s comeback echoes that moment with a performance of the same material.”

It adds: “With his Saucerful of Secrets project, the Floyd drummer and co-founder will focus on the band’s founding years, from 1967 to 1972, including the Syd Barrett period and cult hits such as ‘Atom Heart Mother’ and ‘Echoes’.

Montreux Jazz Festival 2024 will also boast 11 free stages, including the Lake House. The free programme is set to be announced in full on June 5.

This year’s festival will feature a brand-new layout in the town of Montreux as a result of ongoing construction work on the Music & Convention Centre, which typically hosts the event’s main stages.
