Meyer Sound - Returns to Montreux for 32nd Year as Official Sound Provider

If you are a fan of jazz, you have already heard about the Montreux Jazz Festival, which has been held in Switzerland for 52 years. And you’ve probably heard about it even if jazz is not your cup of coffee. It is the largest jazz festival in Europe and the second largest in the world. The largest festival in the world is Montreal International Jazz Festival.

The most vibrant names of the world jazz scene regularly appear on the festival. These include, for example, Herbie Hancock, an American jazz pianist and composer who has ten prestigious Grammy Awards. During the festival’s history, he appeared on his stages up to 27 times.

During the 14 days of the festival, there were more than 250 000 visitors. The artists performed on three stages – Auditorium Stravinski, Montreux Jazz Club and Montreux Jazz Lab.

Meyer Sound has been selected as Official Sound Provider. When the 52nd edition of the fabled Montreux Jazz Festival kicks off on June 29, it will mark the 32nd consecutive year that Berkeley, California-based Meyer Sound has been selected as Official Sound Provider.

“I remember distinctly when he came to me and asked how we could make the festival sound better. He had a curiosity about sound and a real desire to create a unique and extraordinary experience for artists and audiences.” said John Meyer.

Meyer Sound has a tradition of introducing new technology at Montreux, including a series of premium stage monitors named in honor of the festival that was launched with the MJF-212A in 2006. The line has since been expanded with the mid-sized MJF-210 and the petite MJF-208.

Meyer Sound’s collaborative relationship with the Montreux Jazz Festival is typical of the company’s commitment to working closely with artists and performing arts presenters. Many of the company’s products were created as a direct result of challenges faced by creative artists and organizations such as The Grateful Dead, Steve Miller, The Three Tenors, Metallica, Cirque du Soleil and Francis Ford Coppola, among many others.

MediaTech Central Europe, a.s. also cooperates with the best Meyer Sound. We are the only distributor for the Slovak market and we also use their devices in our installations.
