Applications are now open for young musicians to apply to perform at one of the most

Project Arts Centre next April 2015, after its biennial European edition in Umeå, Sweden
earlier in 2014.

Winner of the Europe Jazz Network Award for Adventurous Programming, 12 Points is
uniquely nomadic – alternating annually between Dublin and other young European cities,
creating a vibrant community amongst creative musicians across the continent.

12 Points is now searching for 12 acts from 12 different European countries to perform at
the 2015 festival, playing jazz, experimental or related music.

Over the last 9 years the festival has become an important platform for emerging
European jazz talent, and a fantastic opportunity for young musicians to perform in front of
some of Europe’s top jazz festival bookers and music media; 12 Points brings exciting
perspectives on a great music tradition, from emerging artists with plenty to say.
