Mayor Christian Estrosi held a gleeful press conference to round up the Jazz Festival, pleased to note more spectators, and great music.
In all, nearly 35000 people came to the five nights. At nearly 7000 per night that’s squashing them in, but the audiences seemed to enjoy it.
The City of Nice made a Net loss of 1.8Million euros, but Estrosi sees this as acceptable given the amount of increased trade for hoteliers, restaurants, and others.
One thing that has really improved is the excellent Jazz Off program, with events all over Nice, showcasing local bands, and bringing fee jazz to the town.
