Meet our hosts of the 2024 Conference

The 10th festive edition of the European Jazz Conference will take place in Ghent, Belgium from 12 to 15 September 2024! JazzLab, Ha Concerts and VI.BE together with De Bijloke and the city of Ghent are hosting this amazing event.

Ha Concerts
Ha Concerts is a vibrant concert hall in the heart of Ghent, presenting music for all ages. Enjoy this monumental setting while discovering a wide range of genres, from jazz to pop/rock and global sounds. With events catering to a wide audience, it serves as a local, national, and international music venue, promoting inclusivity and sustainability.

VI.BE is the support centre for artists and the music industry in Flanders and Brussels - from beginner to professional, from local to international, regardless of genre. VI.BE builds bridges between genres and levels, supports talents and puts them on the map. VI.BE also welcomes artists seeking tailored advice, keeps music professionals up to date about the latest trends and developments and promotes Belgian artists both locally and abroad under the banner 'Belgium Booms'.

In thirty years, JazzLab has become a key organiser of jazz concerts in Flanders and took on an active role in building a structured Belgian jazz scene, with the (co-)organisation of networking events and an increasing focus on the development of new projects. In recent years, JazzLab also co-founded initiatives with a focus on sustainable talent development for young creators, giving interesting new jazz projects the oxygen they need to ignite. In 2023 JazzLab merged with Arts Centre nona in Mechelen.
