Nordic Jazz Comets (former Young Nordic Jazz Comets) is an annual showcase/festival for young talents in the Nordic jazz scene that has been arranged since 2006. The focus is to promote and strengthen youth, Nordic music groups and offer them a place in an international and professional music environment.
The Nordic national jazz organizations are responsible for the event.
The latest event was held in conjunction with Umeå Jazz Festival in October 2016. The audience consisted, in addition to the festival audience, of invited promoters from Europe as well as the press and other key people in jazz and music.
Which music group will represent Sweden is selected annually by a reference group, appointed by Svensk Jazz. Do you want to notify your / your group's interest in participating? Be sure to register your group in our Jazz Group Directory by March 1 of the current year. Tag your group with Nordicjazzcomets.
