EVENTS! Montreux Jazz Festival Line-Up 2013: The Liberation Review!

focus_affiche2013_bisHot week on the French part of Switzerland! After the Paleo Festival Line-Up announced on Tuesday (see here our review), it was the turn of Montreux Jazz today to reveal the line-up.

What do we think? 8/10:  as indie rockers in the recent years Montreux used to offer 1 or max 2 nights worth the price of the tickets, this year there are at least 5/6 very interesting acts: BRMC, Jake Bugg, Two Door Cinema Club, The Lumineers, Girls in Hawaii, The Hives (throw in Green Day as well if you don’t consider them too commercial :-). All in? much better than the past years in our humble opinion!

All this year’s big names are dedicated to the memory of Claude Nobs, a well deserved “hommage” to the festival founder with: Joe Cocker, Quincy Jones and most importantly Deep Purple that put the festival into history writing “Smoke on the water” in Montreux while the casino was burning. We are sure that from up there, he’s proud to see what his guys have achieved for this year!

What do YOU think? Take part now to the Liberation Montreux Jazz poll!
