12 Points 2018 announces VENUE and DATES in Dublin + 3 weeks until Artist Applications Close!

12 Points is on the hunt for 12 of the best and brightest acts from across Europe to perform at the 4-day festival 5-8th September 2018. Artists are programmed through an open-call with Friday 30th March as the deadline for the online application process via this website HERE

Produced and programmed by Dublin based Improvised Music Company (IMC), 12 Points is uniquely nomadic - alternating between Dublin and other vibrant young European cities. For the 2018 edition IMC are delighted to return to Dublin and partner with The Sugar Club, one of Ireland’s most forward thinking and vibrant venues for jazz, urban and ethnic music.

Recent ‘away’ editions for 12 Points include Aarhus, Denmark in 2017 and San Sebastián, Spain in 2016. In each case,12 Points was selected as part of the European Capital of Culture programming; as the festival perfectly encapsulates the collaborative energy of the EU.

Over the last 10 years, 12 Points has become an important platform for emerging European jazz talent, and a fantastic resource for some of Europe’s top jazz festival bookers and music media to find exciting new talent; “An important source for programmers and other professionals.” - Frank Bolder, North Sea Jazz Festival

12 Points is looking for the "freshest hottest sounds in jazz and contemporary experimental music" (Irish Times) - Could it be you?
