Jazz à Juan (Juan les Pins Jazz Festival) is an annual music festival held at Pinède Gould in Juan les Pins. This year’s billing includes Tom Jones, Sonny Rollins, Kool and the Gang and Norah Jones. The setting is lovely – right on the seafront surrounded by palm trees, pine trees and a great vista of the ocean. The site is flat and there is admission for ground-floor seating, so it is accessible. Toilets are accessible and there are kiosks selling food and drinks.
As well as paid-admission tickets, the festival has free concerts whereby musicians wander the streets of Juan les Pins and Antibes stopping to play on street corners, terraces and squares. Last night, as I ate dinner at a beach restaurant in Juan les Pins we listened to the distant sound of ‘New Scat’ and the ‘Street Warmers’.
Tonight, at 7pm there is free music along the waterfront promenade in Juan les Pins. I may see you there!
