As an inspired getaway from Cannes, Antibes is the classiest place to be, more precisely, in the town of Juan les Pins, where a jazz festival famous in the entire Europe, plainly called Jazz a Juan, has been held each July each year as from 1960, nowadays standing out as a respected musical tradition. This festival is said to be the oldest of its kind in Europe, which is more than enough for attracting the enthusiasts of this genre. In addition, the fact that names like Ray Charles, John Coltrane or Miles Davis knew how to appreciate the value of this event is more than a visiting card for the connoisseurs. On top of all, given the fact that the festival promotes an impressive number of subgenres – ranging from Latin Jazz and Free Jazz to Jazz Rock, Electro Jazz and Gospel, just to mention a few – its popularity is increasingly high. The 50th edition of the Jazz a Juan is highly expected, so there is no reason to fail to be in Juan les Pins between 14th and 25th of July.
