jazzahead! Bremen

| Festival, exhibition and conference on jazz

The jazzahead! in Bremen is not an ordinary trade fair event; rather, it stands as a pivotal point in the international jazz scene, typically held every year in April. Organized by M3B GmbH in collaboration with Messe Bremen, jazzahead! serves both as an international music trade fair and as an integrated showcase festival dedicated entirely to jazz..

At the heart of jazzahead! lies its unique showcase festival, offering top-notch contemporary jazz from a partner country that changes annually, as well as from Germany, Europe, and the entire world. This platform has established itself as a significant international meeting point for jazz musicians. Bands and artists apply for the opportunity to present themselves to an international audience, and a selected panel of experts decides on the participants.

jazzahead! celebrates the diversity and innovation of jazz, showcasing a broad spectrum of themes within the genre. From traditional sounds to experimental fusions, visitors can expect a diverse musical program. Additionally, the fair includes panels, workshops, and discussions that address current trends and issues in the jazz world.

A highlight of the event is the jazzahead! ŠKODA clubnight, during which numerous venues in Bremen offer live jazz. This contributes to the vibrant atmosphere and transforms the city into a single stage for the festival. Another highlight is the accompanying cultural festival, which focuses on the respective partner country and creates cultural connections.

The event takes place at Messe Bremen & ÖVB-Arena, a location ideally suited for hosting such a diverse and international event as jazzahead! The modern facilities and central location provide perfect conditions for exhibitors, musicians, and visitors from around the world.

In summary, jazzahead! is much more than a trade fair; it is a lively festival that celebrates the diversity and creativity of jazz. With its combination of trade fair, showcase festival, and cultural program, jazzahead! has established itself as an indispensable event for jazz enthusiasts and professionals from the music industry.

The jazzahead! takes place annually, and therefore for the 21st time previsibly in April 2025 in Bremen.
