The Belgian Jazz Meeting is an international network meeting and showcase festival for the professional jazz sector taking place every two years, with the main objective of promoting Belgian jazz abroad. The next edition will take place in Namen at Cultural Centre Le Delta from 5 to 6 February 2021.

As always, the Belgian Jazz Meeting offers international professionals a taste of Belgian jazz by inviting them to showcase concerts of some of our finest musicians. Bands & musicians can apply below to be a part of the showcase program.

Who should apply for this call ?
Belgian professional jazz musicians and bands with an active project that have an ambition to tour internationally.

Some important conditions, read them carefully before applying :
* The musician(s) must be available on February 5 & 6, 2021.
* The musician(s) must agree to play a showcase concert (40 minutes) for a lump sum of €150 (per musician).
* The submitted project has released at least one album/EP (or has an album release planned in the near future).
* The musician(s) want(s) to develop its (their) project on the long term.
* The submitted project has the required professionalism (management or other entourage) to prospect & tour internationally. It has a strategic plan & international objectives (e.g. which territories, programmers it wishes to meet …).

The programming of the showcases will be established by a committee of jazz programmers and journalists who have in-depth knowledge of the national and international scene. Diversity will also be an important parameter in the evaluation and selection process of the jury. This call for application is distributed in Flanders & Wallonia (two separate calls). Eligible projects on both the Flemish and Walloon sides are invited to choose one or the other. In the event of a double entry, the organizers reserve the right to transfer a group in the applications from the other community. Each community will do a pre-selection and the programming will be finalized by a national jury.
