About Jazzahead! Trade & Festival

Jazzahead! is the must-go event for the international jazz industry and the place for high-quality, contemporary jazz from Germany, Europe and overseas. As the world’s largest event where all the protagonists of the scene (musicians, labels, agencies, festival makers, bookers and media representatives) meet, it is considered by professional visitors from all over the world as the « Family Reunion of Jazz ».

Despite its steady growth, jazzahead! has managed to keep its family character. jazzahead! is not only a trade fair for trade visitors, but also open to the general public – with a program that once a year turns the Hanseatic city of Bremen into a jazz metropolis.

Since 2015, the jazzahead! funded by the budget of the Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

The jazzahead! Festival, which has been taking place before and during the international jazz meeting since 2011, presents the art and culture scene of an annually changing partner country as well as bands from all over the world in the Hanseatic city in cooperation with around 60 regional, national and international cooperation partners. At the trade fair weekend itself, the program will culminate in 30 venues with 40 showcase concerts, GALA CONCERT and CLUBNIGHT.

Professionals from Wallonia and Brussels

Jazzahead! will be the opportunity to get you to know and meet Belgian professionals from April 23th to April 25th. A diversity of actors will represent our blooming jazz scene, as about 65 agencies, artists, labels, festivals, venues and jazz organisations are joining forces this year at the Belgian stand! Come and meet us!
