Conference and festival programme inJazz 2019 complete

In just over one month, on 27 and 28 June, inJazz takes place in Rotterdam (NL). An adventurous and soul-soothing festival programme awaits! Also, on the 28th we host our annual international conference for jazz professionals. Topics include talent development, club and festival challenges and rights issues for jazz composers and performers. A special focus on island scenes will feature speakers from countries near and far. From today on, both the complete festival and conference programme are online.
