Soul & Jazz FestivalsSoul & Jazz Festivals


If you’re looking for ‘UNCE UNCE UNCE’ - go elsewhere…

Soul and jazz wreck-ups are few and far between in the techno dominated festival scene 💉

But Montenegro and Switzerland are bringing the afros, smoke and skin-tingling vocals to the people.

Will it be the spiritual beachy vibes of Southern Soul Festival or the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival?


Ulcinj, Montenegro

“Sun, sea and soul”

That’ll work. Soul, jazz and funk battle it out on Velika Plaza - the longest stretch of sandy beach in Europe.

Expect massive sandcastle sculptures and spider crab effigies. Course.

This year Nubiyan Twist and Josh Milan take to the beach with instruments and meaty vocals - no autotune here (sorry Akon).

Leave your shoes at home and dance barefoot to a sax solo while your new mate Sven catches dinner off the shore.

(26th June - 1st July)


Lake Geneva , Switzerland

The second biggest jazz festival in the world after Montreal’s Jazz Festival - Montreux isn’t pissing about.

Going since 1967, it's had the likes of Bowie, Patti Smith and Etta James performing by the banks of Lake Geneva.

This year’s line-up is just plain silly. Cat Power, Joan Baez and James Blake are just the start.

Best bit? It’s 2 weeks long and there’s someone great on every night.

When you’re not at a show, snare a deckchair on the pier and sun up.

(28th June - 13th July)
