Nice Jazz Festival

Nice Jazz Festival will welcome Grammy award winner Herbie Hancock.

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).
