Belgian Jazz Meeting 2015



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.

Between September 4 and 6 2015, Bruges will come alive with the sound of Belgian jazz.

After the success of the second edition of the Belgian Jazz Meeting in Liège, the various partners are delighted to present, through this third 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…

Like the 2013 edition, the Belgian Jazz Meeting will consist of a series of 30-minute showcases.
For the occasion, a small program committee of professionals from Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels selected 12 professional groups, six from each linguistic community. Each will present their latest production to professionals from Belgium and across Europe – and even 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 so-called improvised music, with as much talent as they have professionalism and passion.

The event is on invitation only.
