inJazz / Buma Cultuur


InJazz is the biggest jazz network and showcase event in the Netherlands. It brings together the entire jazz sector in a dynamic setting in both Amsterdam and Rotterdam at the end of June. At night, inJazz hosts a showcase festival with a variety of Dutch bands, which is free of charge and open to the public. During the day, the conference program is attended by professionals such as composers, musicians, representatives of national and international clubs, venues, and festivals, as well as booking agencies, record labels, management companies and media from abroad. When the opportunity arises and budgets allow it to, European jazz festivals present promising bands from their countries at the showcase festival under the title Europe inJazz. Also, during inJazz the winner of the prestigious Boy Edgar Prize is announced, the most important Dutch prize for jazz and improvised music.
