I went last year - there was a free bus from Place Massena to the festival (from near G Lafayettes) - and free buses back - we had no trouble catching the bus in either direction - there seemed to be plenty

The Nice jazz festival is general admission, only "Les Arenes" is seated and early birds get to the front.

Go early to get a good place in "le Jardin", as the olive trees obstruct the view from the back.

"Le Matisse" tends to draw a crowd only when an artist is on-stage and most of the crowd wander away during the changeovers.

There are lots of places to eat and drink once inside, so don't worry about re-admission.

Parking in Cimiez is a nightmare, try to go by bus or scooter if you can.

Have fun.
