Re: Montreux Jazz Festival 2011 July 1-16

Here is the official programme:

It seems that the rumours were all true. There are still a few acts to be announced, generally support acts.

The Vaccines are due to play the Jazz Café on July 5th.

I went to see them at the Electric Ballroom in Camden last Friday, they were magnificent.

Re: Montreux Jazz Festival 2011 July 1-16

Based on my experience last year, I'd advise anyone with a standing tickets that it really pays to get into the Stravinski Auditorium early to grab a spot at the front of the standing section. Those under 6ft may struggle to see the stage and performers as it is not raised that much higher.

Re: Montreux Jazz Festival 2011 July 1-16

prices are absurd but that didn't stop me from pulling the trigger for:

Carlos Sanata + John McLaughlin (i'd pay more to see just McLaughlin)
Santana (needed something more mainstream to take my wife to)
Return to Forever IV (they were amazing last time with Al, looking forward to the new incarnation)


now who's bringing the shrooms?
(for the pizza of course)

Re: Montreux Jazz Festival 2011 July 1-16

I ended up un-intentionally scoring tickets to both BB King shows and now can't decide whether to go back to back or offload one concert. Each show will just have its own style, I'm torn!
