Pharrell, Outkast, Stevie Wonder & More To Headline Montreux Jazz Festival

Pharrell will be joining Grammy performance collaborator/golden child of funk Stevie Wonder and resurgent southern funkateers Outkast as headliners at this year’s 48th annual Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. The world renowned “jazz” festival–who has certainly blurred any conventional definition of the term– has hosted legendary sets from Prince, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and a slew of our other heroes, adding the latest incarnation of P the hit-maker, Stevie the god and the dynamic duo known as Outkast to what is already a star-studded legacy. Others slated to perform at the two-week long ordeal include Earl Sweatshirt, Mac Miller, MGMT and so many more. Head over to Montreux’s site for the full line-up, but make sure you put a penny or two away. We hear airfare to Switzerland can be pretty gaudy.
