The premier international gathering on the jazz scene will once again be at jazzahead! 2021. Incorporating trade fair, festival and conference, jazzahead! is a unique musical event. Its participants represent all facets of musical performance and its organisation, including artists, labels, distributors, festival and club programmers, press and more.
After an untimely cancellation of the 2020 edition of the show, organisers have done their utmost to conserve the key features of its programme for jazzahead! 2021. This year's special edition of the show will be held fully digitally from 29 April to 2 May.
Canada will remain the focal location at the event as partner country and will be represented with concerts, plays and film screenings. With an unchanged performance schedule also remains the essential Showcases event. The showcase runs alongside the exhibition and includes 30-to-45-minute performances by new and established jazz artists, chosen to perform by an elite panel of judges. Meanwhile, the conference program will shine the spotlight behind the stage, setting its focus on the work of organisers, clubs, festivals and other program makers.
