Welcome to the JazzWeek Summit 2012! August 30 and 31, Detroit, Michigan
This year’s JazzWeek Summit moves to Detroit, just ahead of the 2012 Detroit Jazz Festival, the largest free jazz festival in the world.
Who should attend the Summit?
Independent jazz artists; representatives of artists and recording labels involved in promotion, marketing, and artist relations; radio hosts, managers, program and music directors; and journalists.
JazzWeek’s mission is to provide a knowledge base for promoting and programming jazz using new media, radio, print, the internet and other traditional and non-traditional avenues.
The JazzWeek Summit is a place to get artists, jazz radio, internet broadcasters, program producers, labels, management together. As with our past summits, we promise not to rehash the same old panel topics in a quick once-over-lightly session; there will be plenty of time to discuss and explore each topic.
The 2012 Summit will further focus on using social media to advance jazz and jazz radio.
Each year, participants have taken a lot of great information back with them, and put the summit’s ideas into action.
If you are planning on attending, be prepared to work. Have no fear, though, there will be plenty of activities and plenty of time to play.
