It’s festival season and there’s pretty much a new lineup being announced every day, so how do you make your lineup announcement stand out? Montreux Jazz Festival tricked out a Wurlitzer.

Creative duo Cauboyz connected a customized 1972 Wurlitzer 200A to 64 lightboxes, with a different key corresponding to each lightbox.  The lightboxes were overlayed with typography displaying the festival lineup.  When the Wurlitzer is played, the type lights up.
