Conference program at jazzahead!: Focus on organisers

In 2020, we will focus on jazz organisers, clubs, festivals and other program makers. While 2019 was mainly about topics for artists, this time it will be about the other side. We want to prepare the most burning, relevant or even explosive topics for you and invite you to send us your ideas and offers by 15 January 2020 to busch (AT) The conference content will be selected by jazzahead! and co-produced.
