Nice Jazz Festival will take residence at its venues throughout the city on Saturday 15 June, but also further afield in the Nice Côte d'Azur metropolitan area thanks to the free fringe festival, OFF!
Jazz Festival OFF promises magical experiences accessible to anyone in four categories: Friends, On Stage, Métropole and Official Jam Sessions. Jazz will echo wherever you travel on the tram, together with jazz aperitifs on the castle hill, jazz in market squares, on Promenade du Paillon and in the partner establishments that keep the music alive all year round. Everyone will be able to enjoy the city's jazz events to the full. But that's not all! For the second year in a row, the whole metropolitan area will be dressing up in the colours of the Nice Jazz Festival.
Visit Cagnes-sur-Mer, Villefranche-sur-Mer, Castagniers and Roubion for ten concerts organised by the cream of the Côte d'Azur's jazz bands.
And from 16 to 20 July, every evening of the Nice Jazz Festival will continue with official jam sessions at the Radisson Blu hotel on the Promenade des Anglais!
While the festival is the highpoint of the summer season, the Friends label recognises music venues that contribute to a strong cultural dynamic throughout the year. The city of Nice nurtures a pool of talented artists and event organisers who enable music lovers to discover the city from a different angle.
From 21 June to 20 July, all Nice residents can tune into the festival by visiting a venue certified as a Friend of the Nice Jazz Festival. Many venues and groups have accepted the label's invitation once again this year.
The Nice Jazz Festival is all about live music! The On Stage label reflects this promise with its bold and eclectic programming. Starting on Saturday 29 June, the best jazz of yesterday, today and tomorrow will be presented by Nice artists and residents. It's all happening on the Nietzsche terrace (Nice castle), in the markets and even in the trams.
Launched to celebrate 70 years of the Nice Jazz Festival in 2018, Jazz Metropolis is back for a second consecutive year!
There will be jazz throughout the metropolitan area once again this summer.
The cream of Nice's jazz musicians will be performing in Roure, Cap d'Ail, Cagnes-sur-Mer, Castagniers, Villefranche-sur-mer, Colomars, Ilonse, Roubion, Tournefort and Marie.
The Radisson Blu Hotel Nice is once again hosting the Nice Jazz Festival's official jam sessions!
Come to the bar Le 223 from 9.30 pm between 16 and 20 July.
