NICA live special 2024

On the eve of WINTERJAZZ KÖLN, the concert evening NICA live special will take place for the second time. Six out of ten NICA artists will present current projects and music. NICA live special is not open to the public and is primarily reserved for national and international professionals. Anyone interested in attending can register by 4 January by sending an email to

The cooperation between WINTERJAZZ KÖLN and NICA artist development has worked well in recent years.

With its two-day focus on the emerging, innovative improvised music scene, the start of the year in Cologne has gained particular interest from an international professional audience.

NICA artist development is a funding programme of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for musicians from North Rhine-Westphalia who work in the field of jazz and contemporary music and want to advance their artistic profile and professionalisation.
