The world’s first dedicated jazz festival was birthed in the city of Nice and offers, each summer, an eclectic choice of artists and personalities. The mother-festival of all jazz performances is an experience not to be missed.
From 17th to 21st July.
Two stages are planned for the event: the Théâtre de Verdure, nestled beneath the pine trees and facing the Mediterranean Sea, and the vibrant Place Masséna.
A carefully crafted programme of dozens of bands and more than 200 musicians is to be expected including big jazz favorites like and De La Soul live band (17th July); Ibrahim Maalouf (18th July); Mary J. Blige, Chinese Man and the legendary Johnny O’Neal Trio (19th July); and IAM and Deluxe (20th July).
