Back by popular demand: Music Rights on Tour

At last year’s inJazz conference, three rights societies offered insights into everyone’s favourite subject: payment. Dutch saxophonist Benjamin Herman was subjected to an administrative health check, which resulted in many an eye-opener for him as well as the audience. There is more money to be collected from Buma/Stemra, Sena and NORMA than most of us know! That is why we asked Music Rights on Tour to swing by inJazz again this year, with another major player from the Dutch jazz scene. So, be there and bring your notebooks! More information on this programme item will be announced soon.

Sketches of Spain: meet the festivals

Spain: such a big country and so many jazz festivals to choose from! No matter what time of the year, somewhere in Spain is a city, a village or a beach where you can enjoy jazz and its many crossovers played by local talent or renowned international acts. For this year’s conference, inJazz invites a group of Spanish jazz professionals who will give an overview of the country’s traditions, structures and challenges in the jazz field. The talk will be moderated by Hans Mantel, a bassist and conservatory teacher who has long played and worked in Spain himself. Representatives from Madrid Community, Catalonia, Andalusia, Galicia and other regions are available during inJazz 2020 matchmaking sessions too. Names will be announced soon!
