Marseille Jazz festival / Areas of Marseille to avoid


I am going to Marseille in July and looking forward to the jazz festival which I and my boyfriend have tickets booked for. We'll be staying at a hotel in the Vieux Port area. However, I have read a few scary posts about Marseille being dangerous even in the daytime. I have heard that the train station is a dangerous area (as is the case in most cities). The jazz concerts are happening in the north of Parc Longchamps and there is a metro at the bottom of the parc which will take us to very close to our hotel. I am just worried as the concerts start at 9pm and will go on possibly until 10.30pm or later, I hope it wil be safe to travel back at this time, but would appreciate any advice on safety.

Many thanks,
