    Going Dutch: jazz from the Netherlands 2018

    Dutch Performing Arts commissioned the Jazz Promotion Network (JPN) to coordinate the focus programme Going Dutch in 2017 and 2018 to support Dutch jazz musicians and/or groups to perform and tour in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
    Going Dutch consists of an umbrella campaign, invitations for jazz promotors and journalists to every concert and, under certain conditions, also support for travel and accommodation. Various performances are already planned for early 2018. Keep an eye on the website of Jazz Promotion Network to keep yourself updated. In early 2018, Joost Lijbaart will play in Aberdeen and Glasgow, and Kaja Draksler in Belfast and at Gateshead International Jazz Festival. The Nordanians will have a gig in Dublin and Ambleside, and during Gateshead International Jazz Festival.

    Going Dutch promotions in 2017
    Over 2017 a total of 33 performances by Dutch artists were promoted in the UK and Ireland by 17 British and Irish promoters in 17 towns or cities (and using a total of 20 venues). Going Dutch supported and/or promoted gigs and tours of Kapok, ICP, Even Sanne, Kaja Draksler but also other Dutch musicians in various formations. A few of these performances were in collaboration with UK musicians. Of the 33 gigs performed, 20 received direct support for the costs of travel, accommodation and elements of production from the JPN’s Going Dutch budget as funded and contracted by Dutch Performing Arts.

    Going Dutch promotions in 2016
    The Going Dutch programme in 2016 began with visits by jazz promoters from the UK and RoI to festivals and events in the Netherlands. A total of 28 jazz promoters - visited a total of 5 events in the Netherlands - and with several of these promoters making more than one visit the overall total of visits to events was 48.

    This programme will expire in 2019. Are you interested to book Dutch gigs? Contact Nod Knowles via membership@jazzpromotionnetwork.org.uk. For more information about the programme and upcoming Dutch gigs in the United Kingdom and Ireland please go to the website of Jazz Promotion Network.
