Beaulieu Guitar Festival

Held in an ancient olive grove just off the seaside, the Les Nuits Guitares is the tiny village of Beaulieu-sur-mer’s entry in the jazz fest madness that overtakes the French Riviera every July.   For 3 nights from July 26-28, 2018, this summer fest strums its heart out for guitar-lovers.

The 2018 edition kicks off with Morcheeba, the second night welcomes Cool & the Gang, and the final night features Catherine Ringer.

Cost:  Tickets are 26€ if you buy early while quantities last, and 32-37 after; 10€ for children under 15 and free for children under 10.  A 3-night pass is available for 70€.

Getting there:  From Nice, I would recommend going early with the Bus #100, to enjoy and apero in town, a picnic on the beach, or do the beautiful little seaside walk to Sainte-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.  Or, go a little later and take the train.  For the return your options are limited, so walk up into town and take the train.

Main July Jazz Festivals on the Riviera: Nice Jazz Festival, Jazz à Juan in Juan-les-Pins, and Vence Nuits du Sud.
