Marciac Jazz Festival

In contrast to the big blockbuster festivals, this is a delightful, intimate jazz festival in tiny, 13th-century Marciac which lies between the cities of Pau and Auch. But it still attracts the big names, and being small, you really get close to the music. The festival began in 1978 with one concert organized by a local teacher. It grew and grew, totally transforming the town. Today the local College de Marciac school even offers a specialist jazz education.

Jazz à Marciac takes place on two stages: Chapiteau and L’Astrada. International acts this year include Wayne Shorter, Joe Cocker, the Ravi Coltrane Quartet, Kellylee Evans, Paco de Lucia, Taj Mahal and a whole lot more stars. There’s also Off jazz on place de l’Hotel de Ville.
