Jazz à la Villette festival
The Jazz à la Villette festival is one of the most hotly anticipated events of the back-to-school season for musically-minded Parisians. Every concert is unique, a meeting between different artists: jazz, funk, hip-hop, blues and world. It's brilliantly orchestrated 21st-century jazz, mixed with rhythms and instruments from around the world.
The programme for this year's edition at Parc de la Villette has yet to be announced – we'll let you know as soon as it is. Given that past years have seen performances from the likes of Seun Kuti, Gregory Porter and Bryan Ferry, our breath couldn't be more bated.
