Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival well under way

Since 2006, the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival has given music lovers a chance to spend cold nights enjoying hot live concerts.

The 2019 edition of the festival, being held at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo in the Salle Garnier, is now in full swing with an eclectic and electric line-up. Touted as a jazz festival, the event welcomes artists from across a variety different musical spectrums, meaning every year has a surprise or two.

This year, the roster includes Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi, three-time Grammy winning jazz-funk group Snarky Puppy, American musical legend Herbie Hancock, flamenco guitarist Vincente Amigo, Prince’s former band The New Power Generation, IAM and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monaco, and the London African Gospel Choir, to name a few.

Now in its 14th year, the festival has from the start enjoyed the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II.
