International jazz legends for Nice Jazz Festival 2013!

The official line up for the Nice Jazz Festival has just been announced. Held from 8th-12th July this year, this event will welcome some of the biggest names in the jazz industry to the city and for those with a Nice property, it’s a great time to be in the city and make the most of your property investment! Tens of thousands are expected to attend the musical extravaganza to see, among others, performances from 10-time Grammy winner George Benson, Ben Harper, Esperanza Spalding and all time legends Earth, Wind & Fire.

Nice Jazz Festival

Artistic Director of the Nice Jazz Festival Sébastien Vidal said the Nice Jazz Festival acts as a mainstage for both international and national artists alike. “We wanted to emulate and embrace every genre, style and generation, all while offering Riviera artists their rightful place alongside international stars.”

Last year, some 35,000 visitors from all over the world made their way to the Riviera capital to witness the spectacular event, and even larger crowds are expected this time around, making this time of year a fantastic rental opportunity with those of you with property in Nice!

Nice Jazz Festival

In the past the Jazz festival was held up in Cimiez but in the past 2 years it’s been in Place Massena and from this year onwards it’ll be in Nice’s gorgeous new Promenade du Paillon – the Coulee Verte!

It was Nice that held the first ever world Jazz Festival in 1948, and it’s Nice that continues the tradition today, welcoming international and national jazz talents to the Placa Massèna stage for five contrasting musically themed nights: trance, tempo, energy, breath and vibration.

Tickets costs 35 euros and more information can be found on
