The Nordic Jazz Comets showcase opens the second edition of the Scope festival, featuring acts from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. This is the first time that the Nordic jazz organizations present their future stars together on international stages. From past years’ Nordic showcases and competitions we have gotten to know acts like Megalodon Collective, Katu Kaiku, Intone, Pixel, Skarkali Trio, Skver, Mopo, Isabel Sörling Group, Jazzkamikaze and Ilmiliekki Quartet, to name only a few. The annual event has always drawn a big local audience, as well as gathered together some of Europe’s “most wanted” power players in jazz industry.
