Summer Jazz in the South of France

Each summer the Cote d'Azur comes alive to the sounds of Jazz with not one but two international Jazz Festivals held in Nice and Juan les Pins. 

Nice Jazz Festival takes place from the 8 - 12th July in the heart of Nice at the Place Massena and at the Theatre de Verdure. This annul event has taken place since 1948 and always attracts some of the most celebrated international jazz musicians. This year the programme includes Kris Bowers and Keziah Jones but with 2 venues alive with music each night there is sure to be something for all tastes.



Jazz a Juan begins on the 11th July and runs until the 20th and is slightly younger than the Nice event having begun in 1960. the concerts take place with the Mediterranean as the back drop and this year will welcome international artists such as Jamie Cullum, Joss Stone and Stevie Wonder.


Tickets for both events are highly sought after and our advice is to book early via the events websites.
