Around the festival

Jazz à Juan fringe

Welcome, cataphobes !

In other words, if you have a phobia of new ideas, a fear of something new, then it can wait for another day. On the other hand, if you fear standing still, then it’s time to take a wonderful trip to the land of sounds!

Throughout the summer, the city of Antibes Juan-les-Pins offers a whole range of cultural events, concerts, shows and art, as part of Summer Pop Art. Whether during the Jazz Festival or after it, the Tourist Office invites you to have fun … fun for the eyes by visiting the exhibition, fun for the ears by following the Marching Bands, rounding off your evening at the Jazz Club, or coming to discover the Jammin’Summer session bands.

A few words about these concerts:

Jammin’Summer session, like its big brother Jazz à Juan, programmes all jazz, all types of jazz, ranging from classic to electro. So bring your curiosity, come along and listen, see and applaud these young artists who will surprise, enchant, sometimes even get you dancing, and who will certainly be the stars of tomorrow.

Marching Bands

The July 14th, 18th, 23rd, 25th and August 1st, 6th, 8th, 13th, 15th.

Even before the 1st edition of “Jazz à Juan”, the great original tradition of jazz music had already come to the streets of Antibes and Juan-les-Pins (who doesn’t remember the images of Sidney Bechet’s wedding in 1951?!). So, because “Jazz à Juan” has always combined traditional and modern, a major place is left throughout the summer for the region’s Marching Bands.

Jazz Collection

The 63rd edition of Jazz à Juan marks a significant turning point with the unveiling of an innovative identity and the launch of an exclusive project of collectible cards. This initiative redefines communication on social media by using the card visuals in order to share, in a captivating way, the very essence of the festival.
More than simply serving to illustrate our online publications, these visuals are coming to life in the unique form of collectible cards, 50 in number. Each of these cards has been designed to reflect the multiple facets of the 63rd edition of Jazz à Juan. For this first year, these collectible cards will be reserved for our partners and other key players, thereby establishing privileged links to the event. Each pack contains 8 random cards and offers an immersive experience, ranging from the artists and instruments to the festival professions. During concert evenings, you may be approached by our communicators who, with your permission, will film your opening sleeves.
