BERLIN (AP) — Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will be going cheek to cheek at this year's Montreux Jazz Festival.

The pop diva and the legendary crooner are continuing their successful collaboration that saw them reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last year with an album of jazz duets.

Organizers say the 49th edition of one of Europe's most renowned music events will also feature the return of Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, 36 years since they last paired up on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Santana, a Montreux regular, is also part of the two-week lineup along with Lenny Kravitz, Mary J. Blige, Dianne Reeves and this year's four-time Grammy winner Sam Smith.

The festival runs July 3-18.
