The Montreux Jazz Festival has announced that Johnny Depp will join Jeff Beck on stage at the 56th edition of the Swiss music festival.
The event runs from July 1-16, with Beck’s performance already confirmed for the Auditorium Stravinsky stage on Friday July 15.
Depp joined Beck for several performances on his latest UK tour, at the culmination of the former’s high-profile libel lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp and Beck released their first duet single, Insulation ahead of an upcoming album they’ve been working on together, slated for release this summer.
Depp previously performed in Montreux in 2018 as part of the Hollywood Vampires supergroup which he formed alongside Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.
Other acts billed for this year’s event include Diana Ross, Stormzy, Björk, Sam Ryder, Nick Cave and The Smile.
