InJazz transforms the city of Rotterdam into the European capital of jazz and beyond. Holland’s celebrated showcase, conference and network event will make Rotterdam the place to be on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 June. As usual the inspirational inJazz event will also serve as the prelude for a two-week jazz dream: North Sea Round Town and the NN North Sea Jazz Festival. The conference takes place on Friday 28 June in the daytime at LantarenVenster. On both nights, 27 and 28 June, musicians with talent and ambition as tall as the city’s skyscrapers, show their skills during the festival programme at several locations.
