The Saint Jazz Cap Ferrat festival is returning this summer for three nights of unbeatable music in an unparalleled setting. 

For over a decade now, the Saint Jazz Cap Ferrat festival on the stunning peninsular of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat has offered music lovers a truly exceptional experience that combines fantastic performances with a beautiful locale.  

This summer, the festival is paying tribute to “gypsy jazz” and the subgenre’s iconic Django Reinhardt on the 70th anniversary of his death. The Romani-Belgian jazz guitarist and composer is credited with being one of Europe’s first major jazz stars.  

Nestled under pine trees and facing the Mediterranean, the venue, the Jardin de la Paix, has also become a popular destination for international artists, who love its intimacy and special outdoor setting. This year, the programme will feature such talents as André Ceccarelli, Jacky Terrasson, Rhoda Scott, Manu Dibango, Stacey Kent, Didier Lockwood, Jean-Jacques Milteau, Thomas Enhco, Richard Galliano, Robin McKelle, Biréli Lagrène, Manu Katché, Youn Sun Nah, Eric Legnini, Erik Truffaz, Vincent Perani and Stefano Di Battista, to name but a few.  

The Saint Jazz Cap Ferrat Festival runs from 10th to 12th August, with tickets starting at €35 for adults and €30 for under 18s. Doors open at 7.30pm and food is available on site.
