ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Musique & Neige Festival was founded in 1969. Sir Peter Ustinov, who was living in Les Diablerets at the time, came up with the idea of holding concerts in the magnificent Temple de Vers-l’Église. The success story has continued for more than half a century!
Successive artistic directors have been united in their passion to enable music lovers to see top artists at extremely affordable prices. The Festival hopes to bring audiences strong emotions, quality, fellowship and a warm welcome.
The Festival's longevity is down to its volunteers, loyal audiences and a handful of sponsors. It receives financial support from the Municipality of Ormont-Dessus. The substantial contribution made by donors from the Friends of the Festival Association, and by patrons who are generous and discreet in equal measure, means that the budget is balanced each year.
