12 Points Festival to Aarhus in 2017
12 Points to join Aarhus Jazz Festival for European Capital of Culture celebrations in 2017
Aarhus Jazz Festival is proud that 12 Points Festival 2017 will be a part of the 29th Aarhus Jazz Festival 16-18 JULY 2017, when the city of Aarhus is appointed European Capital of Culture. The Aarhus Jazz Festival has always focused on talent and diversity in it’s programming and we are sure that 12 Points will give a boost to the music scene in Aarhus and many new connections will be made. Once again, music unites and crosses borders.
12 Points showcases 12 young European jazz ensembles each year, creating a unique networking opportunity for its participants. It is a valuable resource for festival bookers and jazz media seeking a high quality pan-European showcase of emerging jazz talent.
“ A four day event hot wired into the changing dynamic of the contemporary European jazz scene.”
