Based in Dublin, with partners right across Europe, 12 Points showcases young, creative and ambitious artists in jazz and related music from all points on the continent. Our mission is to assist and promote these emerging artists, bringing their music to new audiences.

12 Points Festival alternates between Dublin and other vibrant, young European cities. In February 2012 we were in Porto, Portugal. April 2014 was Umeå in Sweden. July 2016 saw the festival travel to San Sebastian, Spain. The next edition of our small but beautifully formed festival takes place 5th – 8th September 2018 back where it all began in DUBLIN!

Increasingly, our artists are appearing at other leading festivals and venues across Europe through our mobility programme 12 Points Plus, and we are a database and up to date resource for anyone with an interest in happening music from Dublin to the west, Skopje to the East, Gothenburg to the north, Porto to the south and everywhere in between.

You don’t know diddly about new jazz in Europe until you’ve checked out 12 Points!
