With its first event dating back to 1948, Nice Jazz Festival is one of the oldest jazz festivals in Europe. Nowadays it is an international gathering, and one of the French Riviera’s unmissable events. Nice Jazz Festival has moved from the Cimiez arenas to the centre of the city. It has also opened up to a variety of musical trends. The festival has two different atmospheres, with bands performing on two stages at once, and a total of six stages every night for five days. Over 30,000 people come to enjoy its quality line-up.
