    Festival 12 Point is coming to Amsterdam. The showcase event for emerging and innovative jazz musicians from Europe takes place from 25-28 September 2019 at the BIMHUIS in Amsterdam. Part of a collaboration between Dutch Performing Arts, 12 Points and the BIMHUIS, the 13th edition features a satellite programme (titled 'Orange Line') with Netherlands-based artists and an international visitors' programme.
    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. The four-day event alternates between Dublin and other vibrant, young European cities.

    “The BIMHUIS is proud to host the bustling 12 Points festival, showing the most relevant and fresh European music. With 12 Points we invest in the future; in young, adventurous, professional musicians, in new audiences and in a powerful and innovative international scene. In collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts, BIMHUIS will also present a sparkling fringe programme with exciting Dutch bands during the festival.”
    Mijke Loeven, director BIMHUIS

    Through a carefully curated programme, guests of the international visitors' programme will be introduced to an exciting selection of Netherlands-based artists and bands.

    12 Points' selected acts
    The 12 European acts selected for this year's edition were announced in June at festival inJazz. The selection includes two Netherlands-based acts:

    IKARAI
    Using Muhammad Ali's famed wordplay as a springboard for improvisation, Ikarai brings the worlds of classical composition and improvisation into the boxing ring, literally. Ikarai's music flows through the prism of this famous championship boxing event creating something utterly unique in the process.

    Xavi Torres
    Spanish pianist (based in Amsterdam) Xavi Torres was a semi-finalist in the esteemed Thelonious Monk competition in 2018. Having made a name for himself with his eponymous trio, he channels his myriad influences, from Argentine chacarera rhythms to Mahler inspired harmonies, into compositions and improvisations that balance each effortlessly.

    Check out the full lineup at the 12 Points website.

    About 12 Points
    Based in Dublin, with partners right across Europe, 12 Points showcases young, creative and ambitious artists in jazz and related music from all points on the continent. Their mission is to assist and promote these emerging artists, bringing their music to new audiences.
