The Belgian Jazz Meeting is an international network meeting and showcase festival for the professional jazz sector, with as its primary aim: promoting the Belgian jazz scene abroad.
The meeting takes place every two years and originated as the Flemish Jazz Meeting in 2005, an initiative by De WERF (Bruges, now KAAP) and Flanders Arts Institute/Kunstenpunt. Since 2013 it is a collaboration between partners from both the Flemish and the French-speaking community.
The 2021 edition of the Belgian Jazz Meeting is organized by JazzLab, KAAP, Le Delta, Museact (Gaume Jazz Festival, Igloo/Sowarex, Jazz Station, Jazz04, La Maison du Jazz, Les Lundis d’Hortense), VI.BE & Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques with the financial support of the Federation Wallonie-Bruxelles, the Province of Namen, VI.BE, Wallonie-Bruxelles International & Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques.
As every time, the Belgian Jazz Meeting offers international professionals a taste of Belgian jazz by inviting them to showcase concerts of some of our finest musicians.
The fifth edition will take place in Namen at Le Delta from 5 to 6 February 2021.
