Festival — jazzahead!


The jazzahead! Festival turns Bremen into the metropolis of jazz!

Every year in April, the jazzahead! Festival takes place parallel to the jazzahead! trade fair in Bremen. Together with numerous cooperation partners, we organize a city-wide music and cultural program around the world's largest meeting place for the jazz scene.
In 2024, the festival will focus on the Netherlands, a very special partner country. From April 11 to April 13, we can look forward to a modern and surprising sound!

These were the elements of the jazzahead! Festival 2023 with the partner country Germany:
