Five Continents Jazz FestivalThe Five Continents Jazz Festival is a sensational event that will bring you together with some of the leading names in jazz.
We know of a festival in France’s oldest city and Europe’s most important city of commerce, where you will surrender your soul to music without a second thought. Of course, we mean the Five Continents Jazz Festival. The jazz tunes that take hold of our hearts like ivy will also be enveloping the air of Marseille. The Five Continents Jazz Festival assembles together many of the big names of jazz, each more deserving of fame than the other. The music is perfectly set out in four separate venues with stunning architecture and ambience: the legendary Palais Longchamp with its famous fountain and Museum of History; the La Criee National Theatre, which provides the setting for so many important drama festivals; the Silvain Theatre and the head-turning, magnificent MuCEM. If you want to surrender yourself to jazz music for nine days, one of Marseille’s finest assets is waiting for you.
