12 Points Jazz is in town

Tonight is the start for the 12 Points Jazz Festival.

12 Points Jazz is a travelling festival, one year in Dublin, the next somewhere else in Europe. They give opportunities to emerging young bands to perform outside of their own countries,  and at the same time they can connect with other bands and explore different interpretations of jazz. Each band is from a different country in Europe.

This year 12 Points Jazz is visiting Umeå for 2 reasons:
– Umeå is Cultural Capital of Europe 2014, so a good reason to bring even more culture to town
– Umeå hosts a well-known Jazz festival each year in October, so a good reason to  get to know each other better

If you want to know more about which bands are performing check out the 12 Points website.
