2012 is drawing to a close and the eyes of the European jazz scene are already turning to next year's JazzAhead conference in Germany. Held from the 25th - 28th April in the town of Bremen, the conference is one of the largest of its kind and brings together industry professionals from across the jazz spectrum, with musicians and managers, promoters and PRs, agents and A&R men and many others all gathering for a weekend of heads-down networking.
As ever, a variety of bands are performing during the event, and this year we're pleased to see the UK represented by the Beats & Pieces Big Band, Zoe Rahman and Django Bates, all of whom will perfom during the European Jazz Meeting on the 27th April.
Jazz Services will have a stand at the event as usual, and invitations are open to interested parties who'd like to participate as co-exhibitors. Updated info is now available on the JazzAhead page of our International section, along with the form to complete and send back.
