Previous edition 2022: European Jazz Conference in Sofia

The European Jazz Conference 2022 took place at the National Palace of Culture in Sofia, Bulgaria, between 22 and 25 September. The Conference was supposed to take place in Sofia in 2020 but was cancelled due to the pandemic, so we were really happy to finally being there, and for the first time in this beautiful city!

During 4 intense days, 324 music professionals from 38 countries from all over Europe and beyond, the vast majority of which were visiting Bulgaria for the first time, shared ideas, passions and music, and got to learn about the strong music traditions and the new frontiers of creative and improvised music in the country.

The Conference was co-organised by Europe Jazz Network (EJN) & A to Z Foundation- the EJN member that runs the A to JazZ Festival. It was supported by the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture, sofia Municipality and the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, that is funding EJN through its network strand for the period 2022-2024.

The theme of the 2022 European Jazz Conference was BREAKING NEW GROUND.
