Exhibitors expressed their satisfaction, professional participants their enthusiasm, artists said how rewarding they had found it: there has been consistently positive feedback and much praise from all sides for jazzahead! digital 2021, which took place online for the first time under the motto “Close together from afar”.
In total, 902 participants from 50 nations and 90 exhibitors from 41 countries took part in the digital jazz trade fair. This has certainly been one of the most important editions of jazzahead!. It felt absolutely vital that we should be offering a platform for the jazz scene in these difficult times. The feedback we had about the professional programme was in essence that people had found it both stimulating and useful. The number of participants in sessions and panels was in fact significantly higher than in previous years.

And no sooner is one jazzahead! over than attention switches to the next one. The date for the 16th edition of the industry get-together has already been set: next year’s jazzahead! will take place from April 28 to May 1, 2022. The partner country for the trade fair and festival will then be Canada. The partner country appearance was originally planned for 2020 and we are already very much looking forward to finally presenting our first partner country from overseas.
Registration and showcase application starting date is scheduled for September 16, 2021. The showcase application phase for the German Jazz Expo, Overseas Night and European Jazz Meeting modules ends on November 4, 2021.
