The Paris Jazz Festival ignites the Parc Floral de Vincennes
Published on 5 June 2019 in Events
Created in 1994, the Paris Jazz Festival, known as the PJF by regulars, has quickly become a staple of the summer festival scene in Paris. The excellent line-ups, the relaxed atmosphere and the verdant setting of the Parc Floral largely account for the event’s popularity. When you stay at the Platine Hotel this summer, don’t miss the opportunity to check out one or more of the PJF soirées!
The Paris Jazz Festival in a few words
Since its arrival in Europe in the early decades of the 20th century, jazz has been an integral part of Parisian life and the City of Light has made a huge contribution to its influence and development. The Paris Jazz Festival only adds to this sterling reputation by offering jazz fans wonderful performances by major headliners as well as appearances by lesser-known or niche artistes. All styles and permutations of jazz are welcomed, including jazz français, world music and various kinds of African-American music.
The 2019 edition of the Paris Jazz Festival will be held every Saturday and Sunday evening from June 30th to July 22nd. Under the starry skies, with the audience comfortably seated on the grass, the ambiance quickly becomes magical, inviting everyone to be totally swept away by the music. The programme is of exceptional quality, but also very accessible to neophytes who want to get to know this musical genre. The final line-up has not yet been finalised, but you can keep up with the latest developments on the event’s website. Book early, though, as tickets sell quickly from the online box office!
In a half hour by public transport from your Platine Hotel, you can immerse yourself in the warm and bucolic atmosphere of the Paris Jazz Festival. Jazz lovers go green as soon as the fine weather arrives!
