The Belgian Jazz Meeting is a biannual showcase happening and professional networking event. The aim is to give an international platform to jazz artists from Belgium and promote the Belgian jazz scene abroad.
From April 5 & 6, 2019, Ghent will come alive with the sound of Belgian jazz.
After the success of the previous editions of the Belgian Jazz Meeting in Liège, Bruges & Brussels the various partners are delighted to present, through this 5th collaboration, some of the best jazz and improvised music in the country.
Discoveries, musical but also professional encounters, a friendly atmosphere: the Belgian Jazz Meeting is a great opportunity, for Belgian and foreign professionals as well as the participating artists, to discover music, deepen their understanding, exchange opinions, work together…
This Belgian Jazz Meeting will consist of a series of 45-minute showcases.
For the occasion, a small program committee of professionals from Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels have selected 12 professional groups, six from each linguistic community. Each will present their latest production to professionals from Belgium and across Europe – and beyond!
The rich and varied programme will enable you to discover different – sometimes multi-faceted – emerging or confirmed artists. They cover the complete range of jazz related and improvised music, with as much talent as they have professionalism and passion.
This event is aimed at professionnals, but this edition it will be also accessible to the public.
