inJazz invites you to enjoy 16 new acts and projects from the Netherlands in June and November of 2021

As the Netherlands’ main networking event for composers and musicians in jazz music and its affiliate genres, inJazz 2021 has its focus on a powerful online showcase programme. On Wednesday 23 June and Thursday 24 June, and on Wednesday 3 November and Thursday 4 November, inJazz will stream performances by a total of 16 fresh & hungry bands and projects.

All showcases are recorded beforehand in four well-known Dutch jazz venues: Paradox (Tilburg), TivoliVredenburg (Utrecht), LantarenVenster (Rotterdam) and BIMHUIS (Amsterdam). The bands have been selected from a total of 185 applications by Co de Kloet (Dutch public radio NPO Soul & Jazz), and programmers Frank van Berkel (BIMHUIS), Frank Bolder (LantarenVenster), Guy van Hulst (TivoliVredenburg) and Koen Graat (Paradox).

With a programme of 4 bands each night, the selection can easily and free of charge be savoured by professionals and general audience alike. For all 16 bands, a tailor-made professional programme is being arranged in both June and November. This means that inJazz will be as b2b as possible, in order to get the best return as possible on everybody's efforts. The networking programme is supported by Dutch Performing Arts.
