Like the Newport Jazz Festival, Montreux became a crossroads for many artists in the seventies. Led Zeppelin, among others, would set the trend for the diversification of the music to be heard in Montreux.
The tiring and hectic life on the road would be a golden opportunity to invite groups and pamper its elite on the Swiss Riviera.

Top-of-the-line equipment ensured the best sound reproduction possible. How Peter Grant agreed to these conditions, with his paranoia for bootleg recordings at a growing stage, remains a mystery.
In fact, the only bootleg in circulation of Led Zeppelin in Montreux is the concert, while all others exist under lock-and-key.

By , thirty live albums had been recorded in Montreux. The Rolling Stones found refuge in to rehearse their up-coming tour at the Kursaal Cinema, a local movie theatre adjacent to the Kursaal Casino in total incognito.
