Nice Jazz Festival canceled

In the wake of Thursday night’s horrific attack in Nice, France, the Nice Jazz Festival has been canceled.


The five-night festival was scheduled to start on Saturday, and feature sets from Robert Plant & the Sensational Shape Shifters, Massive Attacks, the Cinematic Orchestra, George Clinton, Youssou N’ Dour and many more.


The organizers of the festival made their announcement hours after a crazed attacker drove a truck through a packed crowd gathered to watch a Bastille Day fireworks display, killing 84 people and injuring more than 100.
