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 two days 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 programme 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 several foreign countries.
Also, various European jazz festivals (in the past: EFG London Jazz Festival, Trondheim Jazz Fest, Jazz sous les Pommiers, Leuven Jazz, XJAZZ Berlin and many more) present promising bands from their countries at this showcase festival under the title Europe inJazz. Every year during inJazz the winner of the prestigious Boy Edgar Prize is announced, the most important Dutch prize for jazz and improvised music. After two years of online activity because of corona, inJazz goes live again in 2022, both in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
