In May, jazz is landing

at Coutances!


The 33rd edition of the festival will be the scene of jazz galore: monuments, discoveries, artists not to be seen anywhere else, six creations, three resident artists, two projects with over 100 musicians, a glimpse back to 1940's jazz, street shows and music, ...

More than ever this year, this festival will embrace the world, with artists from European countries, the United States, Brazil, Africa, Israel, India, etc. They will perform in every imaginable format (from solo to double Big Band), from lunchtime to 4 o'clock in the morning. Numerous musical styles will be on the agenda: swing, be-bop, blues, soul, funk, Gypsy jazz, Latin-jazz, electrojazz, afrobeat, association with traditional music (Breton, Indian, Brazilian, etc.), improvised music, tango, etc.


The town will be celebrating

and we are waiting for you!
