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

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Pharrellwill 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.
