LES MONTUIRES, EMOSSON
Following a decision by the commune of Finhaut to encourage soft mobility on the access roads to the site in order to protect the environment, the road to the Emosson dam will be closed. The municipality is putting in place several solutions to access the Montuires: special shuttle buses (special rate €10, free for children under 6) from Chatelard-Frontière to get you as close as possible to the concert (+ 10 min walk), the Verticalp funicular (special rates), hiking routes from Chatelard...
Find all the practical information and access solutions at: www.valleedutrient.ch/fr/cosmojazz-festival
The site and its accesses naturally limit the capacity for the public! We also invite you to check our page Facebook, where we will provide last-minute information if the facilities are full.
