Music lovers can also enjoy Jazz in Ramatuelle with the greatest jazz artists of the moment. This 34th edition is marked by the arrival of Harold Lopez-Nussa and Michael Wollny between 16 and 20 August.

To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Festi'Vence offers, from June 28 to 30, 20 free outdoor concerts within the charming village squares of Vence. Musical diversity is at the heart of the program with varied styles such as classical, jazz and world music.
