The 2021 edition
In 2021, the Nuits Musicales d’Uzès will be celebrating its 50th anniversary! The festival will take place from the 16th to 29th July and a taster concert will be held on the 22nd April, to give festival-goers an idea of what’s to come. This concert will be organised in the brand-new Ombrière cultural centre in Uzès. What’s the title of the concert? “Bohème”! “Lakatos can play classical, jazz or Hungarian music and is one of the rare musicians to really push the boundaries of his art.”
The festival’s Music academy
Alongside the festival, the Music Academy was created five years ago so that young musicians can take part in beginner’s or advanced Baroque music courses. Artists come from all over the world to take part in these courses!
