The Paris Jazz Festival is organized each year at the Parc Floral in Paris, for the greatest pleasure of both jazz fans and nature lovers. This year’s festival starts tomorrow with 31 concerts over 8 weekends on the program!
From Soul to Blues
Do you like blues, or are you a fan of soul? No worries, the festival presents all styles. Artists from all these musical jazz trends will perform this summer, notably on the «Barge à Jazz» (Jazz Barge). The stage is set up on the water, facing a lawn where spectators sit to form a natural amphitheater.
From discovery to discovery
The Paris Jazz Festival is also a great opportunity to discover! This year, the organizers have programmed a focus on Latin Jazz. Former Buena Vista Social Club pianist Roberto Fonseca is one of the performers. Reserve your weekend and discover the jazz dance (jazzé dansé) Saturday June 13 and Sunday the 14th. This mix of dance, accordeon and funk R’n’B from New Orleans is all the rage. Don’t wait! Get dancing!
A Family affair
You should know that the Parc Floral de Paris (Paris Floral Park) houses numerous attractions designed especially for your children. Formost, and continuing for the entire festival is the «Jeux du monde» or games from around the world. This attraction is open for your children every Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
