GENEVA, Switzerland – The 2015 Montreux Jazz Festival poster has been unveiled and it has me wondering, has artist Sylvie Fleury successfully captured an “explosion of color and music,” or has it simply… imploded?
What do you think? Is this representative of the MJF vibe or more like the aftermath of a punk concert ad?
In related news, the Montreux Jazz Festival is also looking for staff. Applications are being accepted until 31 March.

What does broken lipstick tubes, make-up cases, smeared colors on cement and indecipherable typography have to do with Montreux, jazz or a music festival? Absolutely NOTHING.
This is not even worthy of wall space of a grungy bathroom in the most hideous subway or the dirtiest city. A disgrace.
