40 bands from Germany, Europe and overseas as well as the partner country will be chosen from all applications by the international juries and will be invited to play their Showcase concert live in Bremen.
In 2022, the Showcase Festival consists of:
April 28: Canadian Night
April 29: European Jazz Meeting
JURY SELECTED PROGRAM
“Showcases” are the 30- to 45-minute short concerts at jazzahead! which are open to the general public and at the same time part of the trade fair. 40 jazz highlights and current formations from all over the world can be experienced on three days and nights on the stages of Hall 7 and the Kulturzentrum Schlachthof.
jazzahead! is not a regular festival for which bands are booked, but an international industry get-together with an integrated showcase festival. Bands that play one of the 40 showcase concerts have previously applied and are selected by international expert juries.
