San Remo Jazz Festival

UnoJazz festival of San Remo starting this week. The jazz season never seems to end in Southern Europe. After the acclaimed festivals of Nice and Juan-les-Pins, the UnoJazz festival of San Remo returns for its third edition from 16th to 19th August. 

Discover the Italian Riviera through the eyes of the artistic director, Antonio Farao, a renowned pianist, along with his ambitious program. 

On stage, the first evening will open with young pianist Giuseppe Vitale followed by the great Chris Bennett, who worked with Donna Summer and Tina Turner. The second evening’s headliner — the Earth, Wind and Fire Experience — promises new interpretations of the legendary group led by guitarist Al MacKay. On 18th August, the Tom Harrell Quartet and the Ivan Lins Quintet will steal the spotlight with dedications to titans of the genre like Quincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald and George Benson.
