About the festival

Now more than 50 years old, Django Reinhardt is a hugely respected jazz festival in Fontainebleau, France. 

Named in honour of the iconic musician who spent his final years in the French town, the festival celebrates not just the traditional sounds of the genre, but the styles that have been heavily influenced by jazz music's rich history.

As such, the lineup each year includes elements of funk, soul and world music alongside the classic sounds of jazz, featuring performers from across generations, and from across the globe.

For several months the festival has been working on making sure this year's edition will go ahead, and any adaptations will not prevent the festival from providing festival-goers with unforgettable moments, and paying tribute to the greatest of guitarists: Django Reinhardt.

In the unique setting of the Prairie du Bois d'Hyver, and for this edition unlike any other, the best of jazz will greet you with Ibrahim Maalouf, Thomas Dutronc, Jamie Cullum, Stochelo Rosenberg, Catherine Ringer and others all performing.

Doors open: 1h30 before the start of the concerts.
