International Junior Jazz Meeting

Krompholz stage on Viehmarktplatz (town square) - Tue to Sat, starting 7pm, free entrance

This "festival within the festival" gives young aspiring artists the opportunity to meet fellow musicians as well as internationally acclaimed stars - a unique event in Europe. We invite bands from all over the world. The band members should not be older than 25 years old. The participants of the Junior Jazz Meeting are elected by a jury. After performing, the concert will be discussed in a feedback workshop with a teacher of the Jazz Workshop.

In the past we have welcomed bands from Russia, the Netherlands, Germany, England, Italy, Bulgaria, Korea, the United States and of course Switzerland.
