Honouring jazz music's rich history
Now more than 50 years old, Django Reinhardt is a hugely respected jazz festival in Fontainebleau, France.
Named in honour of the iconic musician who spent his final years in the French town, the festival celebrates not just the traditional sounds of the genre, but the styles that have been heavily influenced by jazz music's rich history.
As such, the lineup each year includes elements of funk, soul and world music alongside the classic sounds of jazz, featuring performers from across generations, and from across the globe.
The 2020 lineup will be announced closer to the festival.
The festival takes place around 55km southeast of Paris, in the park of the famous Château de Fontainebleau.
