Published on 08/07/24

From September 12 to 14, '24, Ghent will be buzzing with jazz. The prestigious European Jazz Conference is coming, accompanied by a host of international programmers.

Grab a piece of the cake and discover a selection of our excellent Belgian jazz scene at (free) showcases in downtown Ghent.

A professional jury selected 20 Belgian projects to play a showcase during the official (paying) program of the European Jazz Conference, powered by Sabam for Culture and Playright.

But no jazz party without an audience! See which concerts you can attend without a convention pass.
