The Danish initiative to share music with Germany


NEUSTART is a joint initiative by the Danish genre organizations, Music Export Denmark and the Danish embassy in Berlin. The purpose of the initiative is to help start anew for the music scene and strengthen the cooperation between Denmark and Germany.

In the wake of the official German-Danish cultural friendship year 2020 – where many planned activities were canceled, NEUSTART aims to pave the way for bands, ensembles, producers, and solo-artists towards a new start after the pandemic.

The organizations behind the initiative – along with the Danish embassy in Berlin – can help artists and organizers improve their reach in both countries through support, guidance, and coordination.

Under the NEUSTART-moniker, JazzDanmark has curated artists for SPOT Festival in Aarhus, hashtagJAZZ in Bremen, Cologne Jazz Week, and more. All with a German connection in mind, and with especially invited people from the German jazz industry present.
