The Nice Jazz Festival, France's first jazz festival, was established in 1948 and has maintained its international prestige.
Jazz and Nice is a spectacular combination with a long history. The city is doing everything in its power to preserve jazz's position in its cultural landscape.
Jazz has been around in Nice for almost a century now! Since being returned to the city centre, the Nice Jazz Festival has continued to
see its popularity sky-rocket. Last year's edition attracted more than 60,000 spectators.
