12 Points Festival 2016

20-23rd July // San Sebastián, Spain

The next edition of our small but beautifully formed festival takes place 20-23rd July 2016, when twelve bands will perform over four nights, selected from hundreds of online submissions.

The 2016 festival will be held in San Sebastián, the European Capital of Culture, in association with Donostia Kultura and the Heineken Jazzaldia festival.

12 Points alternates between Dublin and partner cities, with previous editions taking place in Umea, Sweden, Porto, Portugal and Stavanger, Norway.

With our compact size, it’s a unique opportunity for artists to get to know each other, create lasting friendships and networks, and give their absolute performance best before an enthusiastic local audience, media and industry professionals.

There is no better festival to experience the breadth, energy, ambition and diversity through which young European musicians are making the jazz of tomorrow.
