jazzahead 2022

The festival starts this week

Congress, showcase festival & music fair jazzahead! 2022 is back for a new edition. Jazzahead! is the world’s largest meeting place for the international jazz scene. More than 3,400 professional participants from over 60 countries met in Bremen (Germany) in 2019.

VI.BE, Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques and Sabam For Culture with the support from Visit.Brussels are joining forces again to introduce foreign jazz professionals to all that the Belgian jazz scene has to offer from 28 April to 1 May 2022 during this event. They will share a big stand (5D32) under the Belgium Booms umbrella. More than 60 professionals from Belgium will attend the event.

On April 29th, join us at 4 PM for a special network drink at our stand! On this date, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Brussels jazz legend, the late Toots Thielemans. To honour Toots’ legacy, we will serve ‘Toots’ beer, a local brew paying tribute to this great musician. For more information, keep an eye on our social media!

If you're unable to join us, you'll get the chance to experience jazzahead! anywhere in the world, thanks to its hybrid format: the online platform offers the exclusive opportunity to connect and exchange with the jazz community worldwide - during and also after jazzahead!. Also the professional program and the showcases can be followed live and later on the platform, offering opportunities for interaction.
