12 Points Festival 2016

The 2016 line-up will be announced in January 2016

20-23rd July // San Sebastian, Spain

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

12 Points festival 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. 

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