Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival

Jazz music in all its diversity

2023 marks the 17th Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival from November 17 to December 2 at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo, the program will offer eleven dates.

Open to all and to the widest audience, the MCJF will welcome: Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, Jan Garbarek, Macy Gray, Jeanne Added and, following the success of his Master Class at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, Alex Jaffray will host "Le Son d'Alex", at the Opéra Garnier. But also Pianoforte (Baptiste Trotignon, Bojan Z, Eric Legnini, Pierre de Bethmann), Kareen Guiock Thuram, Keziah Jones, Incognito, Thomas de Pourquery, Léon Phal and Dominique Fils-Aimé.

Founded in 2006 by Jean-René Palacio, the Festival also owes its identity to its godfathers: Marcus Miller and Ibrahim Maalouf, who will not be missing this 17th edition.

In addition to these jazz legends and afficionados, the MCJF offers a special jazz film program, with a screening of Clint Eastwood's Bird in partnership with the Institut audiovisuel de Monaco. The new generation of musicians from the Académie Rainier III will also be taking part in the festival with their concert JAZZ & MODERN MUSIC.

From 2022 onwards, the Before and After highlights will be resurrected in new venues such as the Rotonde Bar at the Casino Monte-Carlo, and will also occupy the Crystal Bar of the Hôtel Hermitage and the American Bar at the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo.

We look forward to seeing you in the autumn for this Jazz Festival, where every nuance of jazz will be heard.
