Copenhagen Quoi de neuf en 2019?

5 events, exhibitions and openings to look out for

The good thing about being one of the world’s most popular cities is that new things are constantly popping up. This lively city draws in interesting ideas which eventually become wonderful new additions. It also provides a broad audience to well deserving, already-established events.

Here is a mix of both worlds.

CPH Fashion Week

Fashion Week has become a major event in the fashion-crazed city of Copenhagen. Twice a year the streets suddenly overflow with style. The neighbourhoods of Strøget and Nørrebro suddenly feel like a haute-couture catwalk, with most people here stepping up their fashion game.

On the sidelines of the strictly-professional Copenhagen Fashion Week is the ‘open program’ for consumers and fashionistas. It consists of three big fairs: Gallery In Fashion Fair at the Bella Center, Vision at Øksnehallen and Gallery at Forum. There is also an array of fashion shows at City Hall and the Royal Academy of Music. The Copenhagen Fashion Festival is the open part of the week, for locals and tourists alike.

Even in the days leading up to the official fashion week, the city is already humming with colour, coolness, and photographers taking pictures of the best street styles. Be a part of the Copenhagen’s one-week transformation, put on your best shoes and get your picture taken!

Copenhagen Beer Celebration

Copenhagen loves its beer. Most locals will claim it is the beer capital of the world, and they have a point. At least once a year, Copenhagen becomes the global epicentre for beer lovers.

In 2010, the acclaimed microbrewery Mikkeller hosted the first ever ‘The Celebration’. This small festival celebrating beer and special brews turned into a huge success, much like everything Mikkeller does. Since then, it has become an immensely popular, annual festival featuring breweries from around the world.

Now, everyone can attend special tastings from the most exciting breweries, all over the city. If you are into the whole craft beer experience, this is your event.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival

The Danes love music. And Jazz is a widely appreciated musical genre – all across Scandinavia. So it’s no surprise Copenhagen is home to one of the top three jazz festivals in the world. In July of 2019 the Copenhagen Jazz Festival celebrates its 40th birthday – and a big party is brewing.

Over 100 music venues across town, hosting more than 1,000 concerts, will attract an estimated quarter of a million people from all over the word. These numbers make the Copenhagen Jazz Festival one of the largest music events in the world, and certainly the biggest jazz event in all of Europe – that is one big birthday bash!

The Festival is open to all types of jazz, ranging from young rising talent to top jazz stars. Some of the greatest performers played here over the years, from Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Thelonius Monk, Oscar Peterson, to Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea & Herbie Hancock, Cassandra Wilson and Bobby McFerrin.

The venues are spread all throughout the city. Jazz clubs, pubs, theatres and larger halls will welcome all with open arms. And if you can’t get tickets, music will be played outdoors in public spaces and parks, which is glorious in the summer.

Pipilotti Rist Exhibition @ Louisiana

Louisiana is the best art museum in Scandinavia. Period.

This elegant and timeless building is located on a cliff overlooking the sea, bathed in natural light and surrounded with the beautiful outdoors. And of course, the interiors are filled with Danish design classics. Regardless of your interest in art, the Louisiana makes for a marvellous field trip. It is located in the small town of Humblebæk, a mere 35-minute coastal train ride from the central station in the capital.

For decades now, it has been home to one of the most exciting Modern Art collections by the most prominent artists. The permanent exhibition is a thing of beauty in its own right. But 2019 will shake things up with an exhibit by world-famous Swiss visual artist Pipilotti Rist. Currently at the peak of her career and one of the most influential artists worldwide, Rist will bring forth big emotions, abstract videos and surreal installations, and a lot of colours – a perfect fit for this wonderful museum.

The Scandinavian bazaar When strolling along Europe’s longest pedestrian street, Strøget, step inside ILLUM – the first and unmatchable department store since 1891. The staircase is a piece of art and the range of Scandinavian designers is huge.
A Strøget rooftop Make your way to the ILLUM rooftop and enjoy the view. Many dining options await you; from a lavish breakfast in the morning onto a glass of wine, steak or lobster, Italian pizza, pasta at Eataly, aperitif options and more.
