The annual jazz camp for kids under the age of 18. Supported by Toyota foundation, William Demant foundation, Tuborg Foundation and Spar Nord Foundation.
2016 - now
The summer camp Jazz Valley is a week of intense music camp for young people under the age of 18, that takes place every summer. The Jazz Valley aims to be a significant factor in the development and gathering of young jazz musicians in Denmark and thereby contributing to the local music environments, as well as the mapping of Danish jazz in general, and always with a focus on equal gender representation.
Denmark has a proud tradition for jazz camps, among them are Summer Session. For decades, musicians have met at the jazz rallies and formed new creative networks and expressions, while being a paramount source of inspiration for the future of Danish jazz.
The Jazz Valley is developed by drummer Kristoffer Juel in collaboration with JazzDanmark.
