The lineup for the 2013 Nice Jazz Festival was officially announced today, featuring an eclectic mix of local and international acts.

The annual Nice Jazz Festival, the running of which has been the responsibility of the Direction de la Communication et de l’Evénementiel in Nice for the last two years, is renowned for the quality of music and acts that it attracts.
