The line-up for the 2017 edition of the Jazz à Juan festival has been unveiled, boasting a very strong coterie of internationally acclaimed stars.

The 57th edition of the hugely popular Jazz à Juan Festival promises to be a real crowd-pleaser, with an impressive line-up of some of the biggest names in music taking to the stage in La Pinède Gould this summer.

Jazz à Juan logoThe first Jazz à Juan was created in homage to Sidney Bechet, an honorary Antibois, and very quickly became the blueprint for many other festivals throughout Europe, including the famous Montreux festival. The concept was revolutionary – for the first time, the general public could get up close and personal with their heroes from the world of jazz, in the beautiful setting of La Pinède Gould, facing the Mediterranean. How could this not but succeed?!

Jazz à Juan has grown steadily over the years, attracting some of the biggest names from the music world to Juan-les-Pins. This year is no different, with a mouth-watering line-up that includes Sting, Tom Jones, Macy Gray, and festival regular, Jamie Cullum. The festival runs from 14th to 23rd July, and the programme looks something like this…
