About Cully Jazz Festival
Despite being one of the biggest jazz festivals in Switzerland, Cully Jazz Festival has retained its intimate and welcoming atmosphere.
Cully is a charming village set in a wine-growing region on the shores of Lake Geneva.
Since 1983, the villagers have welcomed jazz connoisseurs to this nine-day celebration of wine and music.
Over 100 Free Concerts
There will be ticketed concerts across three stages plus over 100 free concerts.
The free concerts are at some cafés and wine cellars spread around the village, where you can sample wine and listen to up-and-coming Swiss jazz musicians.

Known for its wine, music, company, and beautiful setting, it promises to be a treat for all your senses!
