The main points are:
“We have decided to implement large parts of jazzahead! 2021 from April 29 to May 2 in digital form. This primarily concerns the trade show and its professional program, but also parts of the showcase concerts. The implementation is to be carried out via a professional platform that makes it possible for exhibitors and professional participants to take part. We will offer a variety of networking opportunities, from one-on-one meetings to larger groups and even for chance encounters. Panels and workshops will also be realized digitally, with exciting content that is of relevance and importance to the international scene. The jazzahead! digital aims to provide the best possible professional conditions for exchange within the international scene and the participants, despite the pandemic, in keeping with the motto “close together from afar”. Registration for the event will be possible from mid-January 2021 on Prices and conditions will be on the website from mid-December.”

” We and our Canadian partners have decided to postpone Canada’s participation as a partner country until 2022.”

– Canada would have presented 8 bands in the showcase programme. The remaining 32 bands booked for 2020 will be performing in the 2021 showcase. The presence of audiences will depend on regulations at the time. The content will be available digitally. “Should the public be allowed to attend the concerts live in April, we will offer tickets and provide access to the concerts at short notice.”
