The B-Jazz International Contest is a prestigious international competition for jazz musicians under the age of 30. In 2019 the Contest celebrates its 40th birthday!

The aim of the Contest is to discover, promote and support the upcoming and ambitious jazz talents by offering them the possibility to present themselves (in perfect conditions) to an international jury and a live audience. B-Jazz does not present (inter)national big shots, but focuses on giving rising stars an international experience and interesting contacts. A daunting but well-considered mission!

The preselection jury chose four finalists, to which the international network of B-Jazz added two more finalists. This year's finalists are Aishinka (Belgium), Obradovic-Tixier Duo (France), Trio de Lucs (Germany), Xavi Torres Trio (Spain), Anders Fjelsted Sextet (Danmark - through Getxo Jazz Festival) and Stefano Minder Quintet (Italy - via Saint Louis College of Music in Rome). These six finalists will be judged by an internation jury, in two finals.

Both evenings are concluded with a (free) Late Night Jam in Café Entrepot, where a rhythm section of the Lemmensinstituut is joined on stage by the complaisant finalists.

Exclusive! Only 200 seats per evening!
