About the festival

The Festival for Young Jazz Musicians is a cooperation between the University of Music Nuremberg (HfM) and the Jazz Studio Nuremberg.

The aim of the event is to make it easier for young music students to enter the public arena and to present themselves and their bands to the public. To this end, concerts with two bands each will be organised over three weeks at the Jazz Studio on Paniersplatz.

All band leaders are students of the University of Music. External band members (friends, acquaintances) are allowed. All bands perform free of charge, with only a small allowance for expenses.

The festival is financially supported by the Cultural Mayor of the City of Nuremberg, Bayerischer Rundfunk and the instrument maker Harald Dallhammer.
