The organisation

Cully Jazz Festival exists as an association under private law since November 4, 1997. The main mission of the festival is the promotion of jazz and its artists through a high quality event open to all audiences.

Cully Jazz Festival stands as a testimony to the dynamism of a team committed to the continuing existence of this event thanks to the participation of an organising committee composed of around fifteen members, supported by a team of 600 volunteers. Whether they are passionate about music, originate from Cully or simply motivated to participate, all of these loyal and enthusiastic people continue to work for the life of this festival which is deeply rooted in the village of Cully as well as in jazz music in a broader sense.

Commissions

The organising team, which is made up of the members of the office and a committee, is divided into eight commissions. Reinforced by external speakers, each commission deals with its dicastery.

Some commissions are divided into subcommissions in order to manage their specific area of activity in a better way.

Programming committee

The programming committee handles the artistic direction of the Festival. Helped by several residents of the village and other partners, it is in charge of developing the Festival’s line-up.

The members of the programming committee are Damiano Boscacci, Jean-Yves Cavin (director), Arnaud Di Clemente, Kate Espasandin and David Michaud.

The staff

The Festival also owes its success to its volunteers. In 2022, there were more or less 700 staff active in all sectors of the event : transport, reception, box office, security, infrastructures, cleaning, bars, etc.

The council

The council supports the steering committee in their strategic decisions. Furthermore, it works as an ambassador of the Association.

It is made up of Benoît Frund (president) and Laurent Staffelbach.
