Jazzahead! 2022

Preparations were well underway. Canada was to be the first non-European country to be featured at the 2020 edition of Jazzahead, as part of the Frankfurt Book Fair. And then the pandemic... and the many postponements and cancellations.

In collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts, the Canadian partners have accepted Jazzahead's invitation to return in 2022.

As a partner country, Canada will have an increased presence at Jazzahead. An evening dedicated to Canadian jazz artists will feature the eight showcases selected in 2020 by an international jury.

Jazzahead is a market for jazz music professionals in Europe and around the world. It takes place every year at the end of April in Bremen, Germany.

It has a festival component, open to the public, and a market component, which includes an exhibition hall, conferences, showcases and several networking activities.
