Nordic Jazz Comets

Nordic Jazz Comets is a showcase for young, emerging jazz bands in the Nordic countries.

The Nordic Jazz Comets project is about presenting the future of Nordic jazz in annual showcases since year 2000.

The Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish comets have previously been set ablaze on the main jazz stages in the Nordic capitals, and in 2017 the orbit spread to Berlin. The 2018 edition traveled lightspeed to London, and in 2019 the Comets twinkle on the Parisian sky.



The Nordic Jazz Comets is a collaboration of the Nordic jazz organizations: FIH Music School & Iceland Music Export, JazzDanmark, Jazz Finland, Norsk jazzforum and Svensk Jazz. 

The band candidates are selected by the Artistic Committees of each organization, and the final showcase lineup is assembled in co-operation with the partner festival’s Artistic Director(s).
