9-18 July 2010. This international jazz festival is probably one of the best-known in Europe. This 37th edition offers nine days of concerts on nine different stages including an open-air arena, city theatres, squares and restaurants. Many of the events are free of charge, and as always the programme is varied and features big names not only in the field of jazz.
Participants to look out for this year include 80-year-old Sonny Rollins, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, The Manhattan Transfer, Melody Gardot, Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani, Gabriele Mirabassi, Renato Sellani, Mitch Woods, the Hilary Kole Quintet, the Roy Hargrove Quintet, the Trio Reinhardt and many others.
