Nice Jazz Festival

Jazz it up

Nice offers a great range of cultural and sporting events throughout the year but arguably one of the best gigs in town is the annual jazz festival, this year taking place 16th to 20th July.

The first ever jazz event in Nice was way back in 1948 when no-less personage than the legendary Louis Armstrong headed the bill in the Opera. It would be another 23 years before the next event with a huge reunion in 1971 featuring big names such as Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie. The festival has evolved over the years from the Grande Parade du Jazz into the world-renowned Nice Jazz Festival, and many illustrious musicians have taken part from Fats Domino to Chuck Berry, Carlos Santana to Lauryn Hill. Last year’s event attracted over 60,000 fans and we’re sure that this year is going to be even better.
