Good because Danish likes winter in Denmark! Why? Because during that season we can experience many great musical events. One of them is the festival Northern Winter Beat. We asked one of the people involved in its organization – Agata Kłusak, the designer behind the festival’s graphics this year – to write about the lovely event in Aalborg:
Between the upcoming Thursday and Saturday (29. – 31.01.2015), Northern Winter Beat will again take place in Aalborg. For the third time the audience will be able to see popular Danish artists as well as upcoming acts from all around the world.
The festival is a cooperation between four concert halls in Aalborg – Studenterhuset, Skraaen, 1000Fryd and Huset. Most of the concerts will take place in those venues but the audience can expect many surprises this year – some of the acts will play in very unusual locations, such as a small submarine, a medieval crypt belonging to a monastery complex (who wouldn’t like to be surrounded by skeletons when listening to good music?!) and the museum-workshop designed by Jørn Utzon.
Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? The line-up for this year’s edition is equally exciting. On Thursday, the audience will be able to see Karl Williams, Sekuoia and Chorus Grant. Friday will start with music-related movie screenings. Afterwards, Blaue Blume, Iceage, Thomas Dybdahl and Darkness Falls will appear on the stages. On Friday Young Dinosaur and Lust For Youth will play. The audience will also be able to experience the newest project of Efterklang’s members and Tatu Rönkkö – Liima. The night will end with Peter Hook’s DJ set.
Start packing your bags and come to Northern Jutland. It’s worth it. Northern Winter Beat is a wonderful, cozy festival combined with really interesting musical experiences.
