Established in 2007, our multi-award winning 12 Points presents 12 young European jazz acts each year, rotating between Dublin and international venues, 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.

From 2012-2017, Down With Jazz took a tongue-in-cheek look back to 1930s Ireland when jazz and ‘foreign’ music was seen by the Church as a filthy force of corruption, which culminated in a repressive ‘anti-jazz’ campaign to ban jazz music from the dance halls and airwaves of Ireland. An accessible open-air festival, it linked audiences with 21st century Ireland’s vibrant and diverse music scene through the playful prism of this notorious period of our social history.
