Montreux Jazz Festival!

11th July 2015

It’s that time of the year that all the Swiss look forward to.That’s right everybody…it’s Montreux Jazz Festival!


This year’s star studded line up has already been a roaring success, with artists such as George Ezra, Emilie Sande, Lady Gaga and Lionel Richie rocking the waters of Geneva Lake.

So yesterday we just couldn’t wait any longer. We packed our bags, loaded up on the coaches and the whole camp, staff and all, headed down to the festival!

…and what a day it was! Food stalls from every corner of the planet, live music playing around every bend, and the odd jazz boat floating by serenading us with their beautiful tunes, were just a few highlights of the day. Both Green and Yellows, Reds and Blues all loved their time at the festival, many of them claiming it being their favorite day yet! Another gorgeous day of weather topped it off and after a couple of goes on the bumper cars, the campers were ready for a bit of chill time…although several thought of a quicker way and ran through the festival fountains. Safe to say…it worked!
