CPH: DOX is taking place this year from 15. to 25. March. Like in the past years, the program is spectacular. Part of the 200+ screenings and 600+ social events is an extensive program dedicated to music. As time and possibilities are limited to take part in every event, screening or performance we present you ten events you should not miss this year. We hope to see you there!
10 events to check out at CPH:DOX 2018: part 1
The xx Party
The xx this year host several events, concerts and screenings and guarantee for an unforgettable opening party of CPH: DOX at Kunsthal Charlottenborg. Romy will impress the guests with a DJ set. Even more exciting. She will be joined by the duo First Hate. As we know First Hate always please the crowd with their infectious energy. We look forward to dancing to their tunes.
For good reason, women are particularly strongly represented this year. One of them is Josefine Exner’s documentary about Sara Mouritzen and her dream to get accepted at the Royal Danish Academy as a drummer. It’s a real life story about a young woman in a male dominated music industry and what it requires Sara to earn respect. The screening will be followed by a discussion about women in the music business. One of the participants is the Danish singer and songwriter Nana Jacobi. And that is not all: Sara Mouritzen is usually joining Kara Moon when performing live. After the screening, they will take you into their sweet pop world and you probably get the chance to hear Kara Moon’s new single “Insensitive” which she released in February.
This year’s AUDIO: VISUALS concerts program is our personal highlight. At every event music, visuals and film are combined in different ways. Even more exciting, it features many Danish artists. One of them is the Danish duo Blondage. Their catchy experimental pop beats are underlined by visuals at Hotel Cecil, Copenhagen’s new venue.
Big as a Sun
Since their formation and first releases the band The Minds of 99 can celebrate unimagined success. The five childhood friends just released their third album “Solkongen”. “Big as a Sun” is about lead singer Niels Brandt during the process of working on the new album balancing his own ambitions and being a regular 33-year-old man. The band wants to fly even higher but somehow Niels lost his driving force and creativity, his darkness along the way. Will he be able to rediscover it?
An Evening with WhoMadeWho: Through the Walls
Red Bull Music will host an evening with of Europe’s best Danish trio: WhoMadeWho. The night will start with the premiere of the 30 minutes documentary “Through the Walls”. A movie about a life between creating a new album and family, and the problems that are connected with both. After the screening, a Q&A will follow and the trio will surprise the audience with a DJ performance. We are curious! You can’t make it to Copenhagen. You are lucky they will be playing live shows all over Europe this year.
