In 1967 the city of Montreux staged a music festival with the aim to revitalize the city. Over the years this small music festival has become one of the most prestigious cultural events of Switzerland and ranks among the top three Jazz festivals of the world.

In 2014 the Montreux Jazz Festival is celebrating the 150th year of diplomatic relations between Japan and Switzerland with a special Japan Day on 11 July.
