The Montreux Jazz Festival is one of the most famous music festivals in the world. Starting with Jazz, it has progressively expanded to other genres of music and as always attracted world-class performers such as Queen, BB King, Prince, or Santana. This network shows with whom musicians of the festival play. At the edge of the ring, we have artists who perform only with their band, forming many disconnected communities. In the center are those who jam with everyone, the stars of the festival, well-connected. One of the brightest stars was George Duke, the champion of appearances at the festival with 53 concerts. In the center in orange, he faces the legendary guitarist Santana in purple.
