9th -20th July – International Jazz festival « Jazz à Juan »


As the longest running jazz festival in Europe, the Antibes Juan-les-Pins International Jazz Festival is an integral part of French and European culture and heritage, essential for its exceptional influence, which makes it one of the most prestigious and efficient vectors of communication of Antibes Juan-les-Pins and the Côte d’Azur on the international scene.

Since its creation in 1960, "Jazz à Juan" has remained, over the decades, an open, evolutionary festival. After a year of frustrations and difficulties "Jazz à Juan" retains, more than ever before, the visceral instinct of its own legend and fully intends to celebrate both the anniversary of its own begininnings and the advent of a new decade, continuing to favour the coming of rare, even legendary moments sublimed by exceptional listening comfort and quality.
