The prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland came to a violent end over the weekend as crowds of drunken concertgoers clashed with event security.

Police arrested 21 people, including two minors, over the course of Friday (15Jul11) and Saturday night (16Jul11) after they were allegedly caught launching bottles, rocks and chairs at security personnel. They were also accused of causing damage to a number of cars parked near the venue on the banks of Lake Geneva.

The two-week festival drew to a close on Saturday and featured headlining performances from British rocker Sting and guitar great Carlos Santana.

An estimated 250,000 people attend the top European jazz festival every year.
