Fodor's Expert Review Festival International Jazz à Juan
Launched in 1960 and held in July, this world-renowned jazz festival hosts a stellar lineup in a romantic venue under ancient pines. In the early years, stars such as Miles Davis and Ray Charles made their European debuts here. More recently, the festival has 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.
