This is a truly mythical and magical setting. The Frank Jay Gould arena at Juan-les-Pins is first and foremost located in one of the most famous beach resorts on the French Riviera – Juan-les-Pins.
With a sensational back drop of the Mediterranean sea, beaches and the Esterel hills in the distance and the buzz of shops, bars and restaurants alive with the summer tourists, it is difficult to find a venue with a better atmosphere, especially as concerts starts as the sun is setting! !
As far as history is concerned, for over 50 years, Juan-les-Pins has been the home to the famous Jazz à Juan (Antibes jazz Festival) showcasing the world’s best jazz musicians from Miles Davis, Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald to Santana and Diana Krall.
The Pinède Gould Arena has also hosted other music events covering all known music styles, from Rock to Reggae, as well as boxing championships, fashion shows and stand-up comedy evenings.
The Pinède Gould Arena is unique in its own way. Shows take place in the open air, under the stars to be exact, in a real garden with the sea as a backdrop. These are ideal conditions for both the audience and the artists as well as the organisers.
