With temperatures rising, the buzz of summer is most definitely on the horizon. Festivals and events are once again scheduled to bring you musical delights across the French Riviera. Let us take you right to the action with helicopter transfers from Monaco to Nice, Cannes and St Tropez.
There are events to suite all tastes, but Jazz is certainly a genre that is close to the hearts of many here on the Cote d’Azur. The Nice Jazz Festival, first held in 1948, was in fact the only festival in the world dedicated to jazz music at the time.
Over 65 years later, the event is still entertaining international crowds with the enchanting sounds of Jazz, combined with the rich ambience of the city.
One of the most popular events on the Cote d’Azur is the Jazz à Juan festival. Following the success of the 2014 event, which featured performances from Stevie Wonder and Joss Stone, the festival is back with yet another impressive line up of world-class performers.
Headlining this summer’s event are music legends, Carlos Santana and Lionel Richie. Herbie Hancock will also feature among the acts and the festival will close with a free concert from American Gospel Jr.
As the birthplace of the Jazz festival, the French Riviera is no stranger to hosting exciting events but Jazz à Juan is arguably among the best. The magical setting of the intimate amphitheatre, set against the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, makes this particular musical celebration extra special.
To mark the 55th edition of Jazz à Juan, Carlos Santana will begin this year’s nine-day festival on 10th July. Arrive in style by chartering a private helicopter from Monaco to St Tropez and don’t miss any of the festival highlights in 2015.
