The lineup for the 2014 edition of the hugely popular Nice Jazz Festival was unveiled at a press conference in Opéra de Nice earlier this morning.

The annual Nice Jazz Festival has enjoyed great success in recent years, even after the controversial move from its spiritual home in the hills of Cimiez, down to the lowlands of Place Masséna. The 2014 edition looks to be as interesting as ever, with quite an eclectic lineup of artists and acts — where else will you find Deep Purple, Har Mar Superstar and De La Soul on the same bill? This is a jazz showcase, right?

The festival runs from 8th to 12th July 2014, with two stages in operation – one will be situated in the Théâtre de Verdure, the other in Jardin Albert I (Place Masséna). There will also be the traditional Jazz Off festival, bringing jazz to the streets and people of Nice, and an arts festival with a photographic exhibition in the Promenade du Paillon and events in conjunction with local Niçois galleries.

Tickets cost €35 for each night, but there are reduced tariffs available. Children under 10 also get in for free, but must be accompanied by an adult. There are also festival passes available – a 2 consecutive day pass will cost €55, and a 5 day pass is €120. The online ticket facility opens tomorrow, Friday, 18th April.
