The French Riviera – Nice Jazz, is Linedup

The French Riviera’s Nice Jazz Festival is known for its unmissable events.  However,  the 2017 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.

The Nice Jazz Festival, held annually since 1948 in Nice, on the French Riviera, is “the first jazz festival of international significance.”[1] 

The 2016 Festival, scheduled to begin on 16 July, was cancelled in the wake of the truck attack on 14 July 2016.[9]

What Nice jazz follower could forget  the inaugural festival whereby Louis Armstrong and his All Stars were the headliners. It was during this first edition that Suzy Delair sang C’est si bon for the first time, to a cabaret where Louis Armstrong ended his evening.[2][3] Frommer’s calls it “the biggest, flashiest, and most prestigious jazz festival in Europe.”[4]

Over the years, many artists, such as Lionel HamptonDizzy GillespieRay CharlesElla Fitzgerald,[5] Helen Humes,[6] Herbie Hancock, and Miles Davis,[7] regularly appeared at the festival. After 1994, it saw a change of emphasis, with more world music and pop. But the festival’s newest organizer, Vivian Sicnasi, has reinstated an eclectic mix of traditional and modern sounds with an international line-up; it remains “one of the Riviera‘s biggest annual events.”[8]

Set in the vast Jardins de Cimiez (which contains a Roman amphitheatre), the event features several separate stages where groups perform simultaneously each evening, for eight days in July.[4]

In 2011, following years of falling attendance, the festival was moved from Cimiez to the more centrally located Place Masséna. It was reported that about 30,000 spectators attended the five-day festival in 2011. The 2012 festival took place from July 8–12 and performers included Herbie Hancock, Dee Dee BridgewaterErykah Badu, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Gregory Porter and the Jimi Brown Experience.
