The capital of the Côte d’Azur gave birth to the first jazz festival back in 1948, placing itself among one of the oldest jazz gatherings in Europe. World's beloved Luis Armstrong revealed to new listeners the beauty of this music and converted many French people into jazz fans.

A plethora of sub-genres is performed on six stages in the central Massena square for five consecutive nights. Over 30,000 people come to enjoy chart-topping musicians every year.
