Stevie Wonder will headline the Montreux Jazz Festival, fulfilling a longtime wish of its late founder Claude "Funky" Nobs, in its 48th edition which also brings red-hot Pharrell Williams to its famed stage. The line-up for the July 4-19 festival, unveiled on Thursday, includes former Blur front man Damon Albarn, hip-hop duo Outkast, the veteran Van Morrison, Massive Attack, and R&B Californian newcomer Banks. Nobs, who died after a ski accident in January 2013, tried to bring Wonder to Montreux, one of Europe's most prestigious summer music festivals, but the 1 million Swiss franc purse was out of reach at the time. less
