Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival 2022 - Women in Jazz Edition

Even though women have always played an integral role in shaping the history of Jazz, they have achieved much less recognition for their contributions as composers, bandleaders and performers representing today only a small percentage of the international instrumentalists in the genre.

The 21st edition of the Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival will focus on Women in Jazz and will call only for female artists and female-fronted bands to perform in the Technopolis main stage in Athens from the 23rd to the 29th of May 2022. Through this initiative and by showcasing the music and stories of women and creating an additional international stream for them to communicate, collaborate and inspire the next generation of female talents, the Festival would like to contribute to gender balance in jazz. Additionally a one-day conference will be hosted in the Athens Technopolis Amphitheatre during the festival, featuring some of the most important women music professionals and international artists while they share their knowledge and real-life experiences, inspire and network with their colleagues and discuss gender equality in jazz music.
