jazzahead! 2022 updates

New umbrella stand Innovation in Music & Crossover Markets 
This year, jazzahead! is happening with a hybrid setting and with new accents in the trade fair area and the professional program. Innovations in the music industry and crossover markets are to be given greater consideration in order to support the future viability of the jazz industry through these topics. For participants from these areas of the industry, we have a special offer in the form of a joint stand at the fair.

Showcase program with innovations 
Brand new: the showcase programme will be presented live on four stages and, for the first time, two concerts will take place at the same time - the jazzahead! showcase festival is waiting with innovations for the return of the professionals. Although these have to make their decision on site which concerts to visit, registered participants can still experience all the showcases after jazzahead! via the event platform. 

Just in: We can now admit the public with visitor tickets in addition to those registered for the fair. We have adapted the ticket options to the changed showcase stages.
