Jazzahead is the name of the world's biggest exhibition and meeting point for the international jazz scene and it takes place in Bremen in Germany in the end of April every year. Since 2010 there is a stand that gathers Swedish jazz actors. Host for the stand is Export Music Sweden and Svensk Jazz is represented here too.
As a so called co-exhibitor in the Swedish stand you get the opportunity partly to present yourself in a folder gathering Swedish jazz actors, partly to present music on a mutual USB stick with current Swedish jazz music. Both the folder and the USB stick will be distributed to fair's delegates during the fair.
In 2016 there were 40 Swedish delegates in place who shared the Swedish stand with us. There was a total of 2742 delegates from 57 countries, 969 stands, 110 concerts with a total of 15,000 people in the audience. A pretty good place to be if you want to operate internationally!
Since five years Svensk Jazz has, in close cooperation with other organizations and external sponsors, organized a showcase of Swedish jazz groups. The showcase has been called the "Swedish Sunday Brunch" and it has over the years become a very well-attended event during the fair's last day. In 2017, however, due to reduced organizational support, unfortunately we had to cancel our showcase plans. We will work hard to be able to offer the brunch next year again!
