Showcase your music!

After living online for two years, inJazz will return to being a live event in 2022. Do you feel that you can be part of the inJazz selection of the best new sounds in Dutch jazz? Together with our partners we have decided to open for submissions of new jazz and jazz-related music in audio or video form. You can apply from today, January 4, until March 1 at 23:59 hrs.

About the audience
Please apply to be considered for an official performance at the 2022 edition of inJazz. The showcases setlists should mainly consist of original repertoire by members of Buma.
The festival programme of inJazz offers Dutch musicians the chance to showcase their talents to an international network of professionals in the music industry, consisting of programmers, record label and streaming platform executives, managers, bookers, journalists, and others.

About the fee
If you are invited to perform at inJazz 2022, Buma will pay €250 per musician with a maximum of € 1,250 per band. Please note: at least one band member must live and work in the Netherlands and be a member of Buma.

About the committee, recordings, promotion, and distribution
A professional committee, which is to remain anonymous until the announcement of the selection, will select several bands (or solo artists, if applicable) from the entries. All applicants will be informed before April 1, 2022. In case you are selected to play at inJazz 2022, we will arrange for a professional recording of your performance (including rights) at some point during the year. The recording will be used for your promotion and will eventually be handed to you free of charge. InJazz plays an active role in the promotion and marketing of your music. The inJazz recordings will find their way to radio stations in and outside of the Netherlands, to streaming platforms and record labels, and to inJazz’s international network of music professionals.

The showcase application is closed, the deadline has expired.
