Hot Off The Press: “Le Fest Jazz Sauvé!”…

 Fest Jazz Is Saved and
Is In The Pink!

Jazz&Jazz has received this Communiqué De Presse for immediate release:

Fest Jazz is saved!  The crowdfunding appeal has been successful, in fact it has still three weeks to run but the target of 12 000€ has already been reached. Any money sent before the end of the appeal will be used to improve infrastructure for the event. It is thanks to all the fans of the festival that it has been saved and that the
15th Edition of Fest Jazz in 2019 is already scheduled for 25th – 28th July.

“The donations have come from everywhere: the townsfolk of Châteauneuf-du-Faou and from all over France, but also from Belgium, Holland, Germany
and, of course, the UK.

Festival Présidente, Angelina Beauvir

 “Even more pleasing than the financial support has been the hundreds of messages of support and encouragement that we have received. It really assures us that we are doing something right and that Fest Jazz is special for so many people. As ever, it has been an uplifting experience for the young team who direct the festival. Thank you to everyone who helped us. We can’t wait to welcome you (and the sun!) to Fest Jazz, Châteauneuf-du-Faou, next July, 2019.”
Angelina Beauvir, Festival President.
