The super fun Nuits du Sud will once again commandeer the town square in Vence July 8 – 17, 2021. Nuits du Sud features world music, frequently with a Latin bias, ranging from from reggae to Balkan to African to Jazz. Always a very ecclectic and surprising mix…
The stage is set up in the middle of the town square, giving the festival a certain charm and an intimate feel, and creating a fabulous sense-of-place. And, this is the only one of the three major Riviera summer jazz festivals where you can actually eat well, whether on a restaurant terrace or from the eclectic choice of food stands.
Access: This is the festival’s weak point. Best to take a car or a motorcycle, but with the new revamped Nice bus network, now you actually can get there and back on public transport. The Bus #9 goes from Parc Phoenix by the airport (tram stop Parc Phoenix) to Vence every 15 minutes… and now runs until 1pm! Once back in Nice at the end of the night, if the tram has already stopped, just take a quick Uber.
