Southern Nights Festival in Vence

Updated: Jun 24

The Nuits du Sud (Southern Nights) Festival has been held annually in Vence since 1998 and is an internationally renowned event in a lovely venue, with a varied and high quality program; perfect for fans with an eclectic taste in music. Its popularity has grown due to a wise combination of diversity, discovery, and discounted pricing (23-39 Euros).

The central Place du Grand Jardin is transformed for the occasion into a concert hall under the starry skies of Vence. The famous square is lined with restaurants, bars and ice-cream parlors. It's the perfect setting for a festive, convivial evening.
