The frenzied jazzy notes that spring from the alleys, the amazed spectators who vibrate in unison, the bursts of applause that resonate in the village... Hardly have the musicians started their piece when already, dancers, spectators and amateurs, conquered by the famous Summer Jazz festival, invade the alleys of the village.
Swing in the heart of the village
The “Megève Jazz Contest” was created in 1994. Groups from all over Europe made the trip for this competition of amateur New Orleans Jazz orchestras, which has become unmissable. The music invaded the streets of the village giving an extraordinary atmosphere! Summer in Megève cannot therefore be imagined without an air of New Orleans jazz resonating in the streets of the village.
After 26 years of "Megève Jazz Contest", the "Summer Jazz" takes its place in 2020 to once again thrill music lovers and highlight talented groups for 2 weekends in the summer.
The Summer Jazz is a concentrate of jazz during a weekend in July and a weekend in August, where we will swing to the tunes of New Orleans! Every summer, for more than 30 years, jazz has bewitched the village to the delight of its holidaymakers and its inhabitants! Like a cocoon, the amphitheater is transformed into a veritable dance floor, where the sounds of melody and water come together to form a magnificent musical spectacle. Its more contemporary and up-to-date programming is sure to attract holidaymakers looking for lightness and… swaying! Something to liven up the mild summer evenings...
