Alternatilla Jazz In Mallorca - Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Our jazz festival is now in its 4th edition, every year we have a formula of having a “guest country” which means that the international musicians and groups that we book are from that country, so we can showcase the up and coming jazz scene of that country; To those international names (from the guess country) we add artists from mainland Spain and of course local artists from Mallorca and the Balearic Islands. The program is completed with what we call the “mènage a jazz” shows where we get together on the stage artists from all the territories involved (international and local); also an important part of our program is the educational section, with shows for music schools and students together with workshops etc.

Bezau Beatz - Bezau, Austria

BEZAU BEATZ is a music festival in the very western part of Austria (near the Constance lake) in an alpine surrounding. The programme is very eclectic: from improvised music, experimental to pop and singer/songwriter - we call it creative music. The main venue is in the garage of al old steam engine (the train is parked close to the stage and also used for a dj-ride out before concerts, on Friday nights). We programme also in different side venues such as an old sawmill, an alpine barn, a church and the Bezau Beatz cafe in the centre of the village. The valley of the Bregenzerwald is besides its nature a hotspot for great architecture, artisanship, gastronomy and restaurants, hiking and mountain biking as well as sustainable farming.

Club Inégales - London, United Kingdom

Club Inégales is a place of surprises, do not expect the conventional!  it’s not a jazz club, not a new music venue, not a comedy club, not a world music venue. But expect all of these to appear, as we search for the best of real new, spontaneous performance.
