Mid April each year sees the organisers of one of France’s fastest growing music festivals open up ticket sales and unveil the line-up for this year’s event.
Nuits du Sud is a series of concerts which take place in the charming town of Vence, neighbour to the picturesque Saint Paul-de-Vence, at the heart of the Riviera region.
2013’s event saw guitar master Nile Rodgers delight crowds with his funky rhythms as well as world music giants Amadou and Mariam entertaining crowds with their energetic live performance. Apart from international stars, Nuits du Sud is also known for its superb selection of French talent whose performances leave none in doubt that France is a serious player in the world music scene.
Standard ticket prices generally come in at around the €20 mark with reduced rates for students and children. For visitors who plan to see more than one show or just want to have the freedom to come and go throughout various shows, there are very reasonably priced multi-pass tickets which start at around €130 for 6 shows and €200 for 12.
