About Copenhagen Jazz Festival
Around 100 venues across the historical heart of the capital play host to 1000 concerts.
The streets of Copenhagen come alive to the sound of jazz being played in the streets, cafes, concert halls and open-air stages.
Some concerts have entry fees but many are free.
Attracting over a quarter of a million visitors throughout the 10 days, the festival visitors are divided evenly across age groups.
As such there are programs catering especially to children, teenagers, pensioners and the most enthusiastic jazz devotees.
In addition this year, there will be a Jazz Camp and Workshop held 5-8 July for aspiring and experienced composers, songwriters and producers.
Copenhagen’s reputation as a jazz centre developed in the 1950s and 1960s.
A time when local acts gained international prominence and many leading American jazz artists based themselves here.
