jazzahead! is an exhibition and meeting point for the international jazz scene. Since its premiere in 2006, the event has enriched the regional and national cultural scene with its high quality and diverse jazz as well as with international flair.
With its unique concept combining showcase festival, conference, exhibition and festival – all revolving around the central topic “jazz” – the event has become the must-go networking event for the global jazz scene. Norway, as partner country of jazzahead! in 2019, will be a central focus of the trade fair and festival.
During jazzahead!’s showcases, musicians get the chance to present themselves and their music in front of important industry professionals as well as to a broad audience.
