Aalborg, once a small-town industrial city, is now known for its culture and international environment.  The city grows with every new building, renovation, green space and event. 

Being close to an international airport helps make this growth possible, not to mention being a place called home to thousands of international students and ex-pats. 

There are two Jazzy events you may be interested in joining. 

The first event starts on Wednesday, July 27th and runs through to Saturday, July 30th. There will be a massive amount of international energy.  The Supernova Jazz Blasts invites you to join a series of jazz concerts held in Aalborg. 

4 days and nights of jazz in the city

Supernova Jazz Blast set up a simple concept: 12 jazz concerts over four days and nights in four locations across the city. 

The international scene will be set with jazz musicians and artists from across the globe, including Denmark, Norway, Poland, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Malta, Ukraina and Israel. 

The Jazz Festival is arranged by Jazz9tus, Meutiviti, Jazz Center (Jazzcentret) and Huset on Hasserisgade.

The price? Only 35 kr to listen and join in on this incredible energy. In addition, the Late Night Jam Session at 23:00 on all nights is free.

The four locations:

  • El Mundo, Jomfru Ane Gade 23
  • Jazzcentret, Kjellerups Torv 2
  • Lange Kunsthåndværk, Hjelmerstald 15
