In April it's finally that time again, when Bremen will once more be the world capital of jazz for a few weeks. In 2020, the jazzahead! could not take place at all due to the Corona pandemic, last year only online. This year's motto is therefore also: "Together again!" - finally together with Canada, because, as you know, this country was to be presented in the two previous years. "We are now very much looking forward to this Canadian selection in particular, which we have been waiting for so long", says Sybille Kornitschky, the project manager at MESSE BREMEN's jazzahead!
Now that the opening and gala concerts - the former on Thursday, 14 April, with Erin Costelo, and the latter on Friday, 29 April, with Laila Biali and Malika Tirolien - have already been announced, the showcase acts have also been confirmed. As usual, they are bundled into blocks and will take place parallel to the fair from Thursday, 28, to Saturday, 30 April, in various locations. The selection is the result of a careful decision-making process carried out by four top-class juries - one jury for each musical block, the Canadian, the European, the German and the one with artists:inside from overseas.
