Whatever the time of day or night and wherever you find youself in Denmark this February, some talented jazz musicians will be performing somewhere near you. Vinterjazz is a jazz music festival consisting of over 500 concerts held all across the country. The festival is lauded as a massive collaborative effort between 100 different venues and 25 organisers, in large cities and small towns across Denmark. The combination of the festival’s length and the countrywide aspect makes Vinterjazz an opportunity to meet international stars on tour, new Danish award-winning projects and concert themes.
What makes Vinterjazz a special music event is, that it is a national collaboration between venues and organizers, musicians and audience, the big cities and the outskirts of Denmark – a national initiative created and taking place locally. For instance, when Vinterjazz presents a series of concerts in cities like Sorø, Silkeborg, Lemvig and Sønderborg which are organized by local non-profit communities, or when Vinterjazz move into the new concert halls of Musikkens Hus in Aalborg, DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen or Kulturværftet in Helsingør, which offer some of the festival’s biggest stars.
Vinterjazz is first and foremost a club festival that kick-starts the season for the many Danish jazz clubs that create an environment where jazz can develop and live year round. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that Vinterjazz this year sets a new record with more than 100 venues. Especially we would like to welcome you to the many new venues in the programme.
The festival will take place in multiple cities and venues of Denmark.
