Festival Django Reinhardt in Fontainebleau, France. 23 – 26 June 2022

Festival Django Reinhardt in Fontainebleau, France.

23 – 26 June 2022

About Festival Django Reinhardt

In the exceptional setting of the Château de Fontainebleau Park (only one hour from Paris), four days of music pay tribute to the swing and modernity of the greatest jazz guitarist.

Young talents, symbolic figures of gipsy jazz, international artists communicate around the musical legacy of Django Reinhardt.

The area around Samois-Sur-Seine/Fontainebleau was the adopted home of the legendary father of gipsy jazz until he died in 1953.

In 1968, the Association of Friends Samois paid tribute to Reinhardt by playing his songs.

This was repeated every five years until 1978, when the Festival Django Reinhardt Association was born, and the event became an annual musical salute to the “guitar in a human voice.”

Major acts in the past have included jazz giants such as Chet Baker, Bill Colman and TS Monk.

A don’t miss for fans of the genre.
