First inJazz bands for 2022 revealed

InJazz 2022 is first and foremost a free-for-all jazz festival, spread across one night at the BIMHUIS (22 June) and five stages in Rotterdam’s Katendrecht neighbourhood (23 June).

The inJazz selection committee consisting of Raluca Baicu (North Sea Round Town, de Doelen), Frank van Berkel (BIMHUIS, Jazzschip), Sander Grande (MOJO/North Sea Jazz Festival), and Maite Hontelé (Music Meeting), selected 16 bands that will perform (and be recorded on video) during inJazz 2022. 4 of them can be seen on the night of Wednesday 22 June at BIMHUIS in Amsterdam. 12 will be featured during the inJazz Festival in Rotterdam on 23 June. In the next few weeks, all names will be revealed through the inJazz social media channels. And we are happy to give away the first two here!
