Will you shine at the Open Stage?

In addition to all those great international artists at NN North Sea Jazz, last year a very special stage was introduced: one where YOU can shine! So sign up for a spot at the Open Stage… but first, read all about it here.

After last year’s successful edition of the Central Park Open Stage, this year we are taking it outside to NN Mississippi Terrace. In addition to watching performances and jams by local and international artists there, visitors get a chance to show their musical skills. So come and join the professional hosting musicians (varying each day) to jam together! Every festival day, there are a number of open stage time slots that you can sign up for. Registration starts at 3:30 PM and closes at 6:00 PM; to join, simply sign up at NN Mississippi Terrace. There will be a backline set-up consisting of drums, keyboards, (double) bass, guitar and mics that may be used. You are only allowed to bring smaller instruments (e.g. flute, saxophone, guitar, electric bass, violin, etc.) on stage yourselves. As there are festival rules that only allow small bags to be brought in, make sure to register your instrument now by sending an e-mail to info@northseajazz.com.

You will then receive a confirmation to show at the festival entrance. Please note this does NOT automatically guarantee a spot at the Open Stage; you’ll still gave to register at the festival.

The Open Stage sessions take place from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM; and 9:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. You can register between 3.30 pm and 6.00 pm.

The Open Stage is supported by NN and will be hosted by Shaynah.
