If the sanitary situation in Switzerland allows it, Montreux Celebration will organise, like every year, free events and activities from 2nd till 5th September 2021 by the Freddie Mercury statue and under the Covered Market.
Our event is completely free of charge and does not require any advance booking or admission ticket.
The information will be announced by the summer of 2021!
The Official Freddie Birthday Party 2021
With great regret, The Mercury Phoenix Trust, who organize this event, must announce that the Official Freddie Mercury Birthday Party for 2021 is to be cancelled.
Despite progress across the globe in fighting the pandemic, there are still too many unknowns and variables to allow us to plan, put on, and ultimately party indoors with all our fabulous supporters. It truly is saddening to cancel for the second year running, but all being well, we will come back stronger for 2022!
