Les Rendez-Vous de l’Erdre
Jazz et belle plaisance: the only free jazz festival in France

In Nantes and along the Erdre and the Canal, a dozen of towns host concerts and yacht parades.

In Nantes, the heart of the festival is located on the quays of the Erdre with a gathering of heritage boats in the Bassin Ceineray, and 6 stages presenting the full diversity of today’s jazz.

Jazz will be present in all its forms: contemporary jazz, blues, swing, electro… and carried by the greatest artists of the French and European scene.

Crews of heritage boats get together to share their common passion and travel the 28 km of the navigable Erdre.
