The next edition of Jazzfest Berlin will take place from 3 - 6 November 2022.
The last Jazzfest, in its fourth year under the artistic direction of Nadin Deventer, followed improvised music in three cultural capitals: Cairo, São Paulo and Johannesburg - with live concerts in Johannesburg and Berlin, newly created video contributions and a supporting program for each focus.
The program for 2022 will be published in the summer.
As part of the live program in Berlin, a further 22 acts by musicians from Europe, New York and Berlin's avant-garde could be experienced in the silent green, the Pierre Boulez Saal and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.
In intensive collaboration with the co-curators - Maurice Louca for Cairo, Juliano Gentile and Manoela Wright for São Paulo, and Jess White for Johannesburg - the Jazzfest Berlin team had developed a diverse program of pre-produced and live concert formats. It showcased the musicality, innovativeness, and interdisciplinary experimentation of these cities' local scenes, as well as the specific (self-)location between the global jazz canon and each region's rich, musical heritage.
