Word form the President

The edition for the 15 years old of the Marseille Jazz des cinq continents is now behind us and 2016 is about to show up! The 2015 edition was magnificent, generous, under the stars and with great temperatures. Concerts were splendid and the public in numbers. The Gods of Jazz were around us, as if it was magic.

Since September and despite events we had to handle, our team is back in service, in order to settle a great 17th edition. This year, the festival will held from 20 to 29 July. Before that, you will find out more events with the "Marseille Heure Jazz".

Prepare yourself to live the jazz in all its form !

In the name of the festival, I wish you a happy year 2016, filled with joy, health and success. My thoughts also go to those that work behind the scene, in order to make Art and Culture a hope that enlighten our ways during these hard times.

Happy New Year everyone !
