Amersfoort World Jazz Festival – The Netherlands

The Amersfoort World Jazz Festival, dubbed as a Musicians’ Paradise, offers more than just a performance opportunity; it provides a platform that can significantly benefit a musician’s career in the long run. Artists are encouraged to engage with their peers, explore the city, immerse themselves in various performances, and network with journalists and industry professionals during their time in Amersfoort. Beyond geographical boundaries, the festival aims to push the boundaries of jazz by embracing innovation and diversity. Alongside traditional jazz, the program includes genres such as world music, improvisation, hip-hop, rap, R&B, and dance, as long as they incorporate elements that resonate with the jazz tradition.
