Val de Jazz: Summer Jazz Festival (July)

"'Art is harmful to stupidity.'   This quote from Miss'tic, the artist who created the poster for the Val de Jazz 2008 perfectly sums up our state of mind.  In other words, this sixth festival will offer quality artists and works, as well as accessibility to everyone.  More than ever, music and visual arts will be given the place of honor ... and will thrill art lovers of every stripe.  And let's say it loud and clear:  Val de Jazz is still here and declares:  Down with stupidity!" - Vincent Fregeai, President of  Val de Jazz

Every year, Val de Jazz lights up July evenings with groove, swing, and even hip hop by the best international artists:  Didier Lockwood, Manu Dibango, La Fouine, Stacey Kent....

Between Sancerre, Saint-Brisson, and Belleville-sur-Loire, the thrill of seeing the fantastic scenery in the Loire Valley is mingled with the sublime pleasures of the queen of music:  Jazz.
