It’ll held on an additional day of the festival, on the 6th July 2023 on two stages – the Main stage and the Night stage at “Toplocentrala” venue. A to JazZ Festival & Showcase is open air and takes place in Sofia city, Bulgaria in the emblematic South Park 2.
Eight emerging artists from 162 applications from all across Europe had been selected for the first Bulgaria’s showcases for world music. Our international jury was Marina Pommier, Bojan Djordjevic, Ula Nowak, Kostadin Shurbanovski and Peter Dimitrov. See the official showcase selection below.
The selected artists will be listened by professional international bookers, festival programmers and musical curators in front of thousands people of our festival audience – artists new fans! They will have an opportunity to get feedback from the professionals, to expand their professional network, even new bookings for future shows and to participate in the educational training sessions “How to showcase” and “Go to the international market”.
