12 Points presents 12 young European jazz acts each year, creating a unique opportunity for its participants, audiences and a valuable resource for festival bookers seeking a high quality pan-European showcase of emerging jazz talent.

There is no better festival to experience the breadth, energy, ambition and diversity through which young European musicians are making the jazz of tomorrow.
