The separation between visitors to the trade fair and concerts in the ticketing system introduced in 2016 has proved itself and will be continued in the future: tickets for the showcases no longer include a visit to the trade fair. Only professional participants, exhibitors or co-exhibitors with a corresponding registration will continue to have access to the trade fair in Hall 6.
Professional participant registrations are possible online until 12th April 2017. Registration as a professional participant at the reduced price of € 160 for every day is available until 13th January. All the visitor information on attending jazzahead! 2017 can be found at www.jazzahead.de.

Visitor tickets for the short concerts at Finnish Night, German Jazz Expo, Overseas Night and European Jazz Meeting are available here.
