Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine, France (2009)

The Festival Django Reinhardt is a Gypsy jazz music festival held during the last week of June at Samois-sur-Seine, France.[1] It began as a single evening festival in 1968, but in 1983, became an annual week-long event commemorating Django Reinhardt and his music.[2]

The festival combines a musical program with creative, leisure and artistic activities about jazz, guitars and Gypsies.
