Fodor's Expert Review Festival International Jazz à Juan
Every July the world-renowned Jazz à Juan festival stages a stellar lineup in a romantic venue under ancient pines. Launched in 1960, this festival hosted the European debut performances of such stars as Miles Davis and Ray Charles. More recently, it spawned the fringier Jazz Off, with 200 musicians and free street concerts, as well as the Jazz Club at Les Ambassadeurs beach, where you can enjoy a drink with live music (headliners have been known to pop in for impromptu concerts here). Book online or buy tickets directly from the tourist office in Antibes or Juan-les-Pins.
