The summer concert series SPOT ROYAL expands with focus on Nordic artists


After a successful SPOT Festival, we are now ready to launch a number of great concert afternoons in the heart of Aarhus:

For the second year in a row we are going to present ten strong concert afternoons at the Aarhus Canal Stage on Immervad, Aarhus under the heading SPOT Royal. Every Saturday from the 2nd of June to the 4th of August, Aarhus residents and visitors to the city may enjoy two exciting new acts with international potential playing on the round stage in the heart of the city and facing Magasin (one of the biggest department stores in Aarhus) and Den Spanske Trappe (the Spanish Steps).

This year the free concert afternoons will be expanded with acts from the other Nordic countries. This means that over the summer you will have the opportunity to hear live music from Norwegian, Swedish, Faroese, Greenlandic acts as well as Danish acts.

It is SPOT’s ambition with the concerts to make people aware of new artists on the Nordic scene and to present live music to a large audience.

The concert afternoons will start at 2.30 PM and end at 4.00. Here is the complete SPOT Royal 2018 summer calendar:

June 2: AySay and Tuvaband (NO)
June 9: Loney Dear (SE) and AddisAbabaBand
