Jazzahead 2020 postponed
The organisers of jazzahead! 2020, scheduled to take place in Bremen, Germany, on 23-28 April, have released a statement regarding the cancellation of the industry event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The next jazzahead! will take place a full year later, on 29 April - 2 May 2021, with a focus on Canada (as originally planned for this year), and with the showcase program planned for 2020.
'After careful consideration and the official order of the State of Bremen to take measures to slow the spread of COVID-19, jazzahead! 2020 will be cancelled and postponed to our 2021 dates: 29 April - 2 May. These are extraordinary and new circumstances for all of us and our highest aim is to keep artists, participants, visitors and colleagues safe. Therefore, we have decided that the showcase selection will remain unchanged for next year's edition. We are now getting in contact with all selected artists and hope for a possible transferral to next year's edition.
The AMC maintains its commitment to the partnership with SOUNDS AUSTRALIA that enables us to undertake these international market development activities in support of Australian artists. We will keep you informed about future arrangement for both jazzahead! and Classical:NEXT.
