Each and every Friday, over 1 million Danes have watched as the world-famous DJ, Martin Jensen, has acted as a judge on X Factor on TV 2.

Last week, the X Factor season ended with a bang, but you can already experience the sensation again this Friday.

This time, the DJ will literally crawl 35 meters up onto the roof of the stage tower in Aalborg Congress & Culture Center (AKKC) where he plans to broadcast the wildest party live for four hours in a row.

Martin Jensen is ranked among the world’s very best DJs, and in this display, you will get to experience what it’s like to be in the audience at one of the biggest festivals.

It will happen right here in Aalborg. The area around AKKC will be cordoned off as the party will be accompanied by a wild firework show and will be filmed by drones and perhaps even wilder equipment.

The concert can be seen live on Martin Jensen’s Twitch channel from 20:00, and during similar events, he’s reached more than half a million people.

A record crowd is expected on Friday when Martin Jensen goes live again with the concert concept Me, Myself Online.

Raised 35 meters with a view of Aalborg

Twitch is an online channel that, in recent years, has really gained a foothold worldwide with close to 20 million daily users.

Martin Jensen has played at some of the biggest events around the world, but a whole new experience is planned for the world-famous DJ when he takes on the AKKC on Friday, April 16, for a spectacular online concert.

Martin Jensen will perform on the roof of the AKKC’s 35-meter high stage tower where a stage has been built for the occasion in the middle of the tower’s roof, which is otherwise never used for concerts.

The stage tower is part of Aalborg’s skyline and offers a view over the rest of Aalborg and the Limfjord as it winds through the North Jutland city.

“It will be wild to get the venue going again after the long corona-period with such a brilliant concert by Martin Jensen.

A firework spectacular and a bang as a signal of what the audience can expect from the events we put on in the future.

We will keep doing what we usually do, but we’ll also do what we do NOT usually do, like accommodating this international artist’s crazy idea of ​​a 4-hour concert at a height of 35 meters,” a very excited CEO of AKKC, Nicolaj Holm, says.

Martin Jensen wants to keep Danes at home

The concert is part of Martin Jensen’s Me, Myself Online concept, which has previously been held at venues such as Skovtårnet, Parken, Billund Airport, and most recently ILLUM in Copenhagen.

For Martin Jensen Me, Myself Online is a way to contribute to society’s corona-management by giving Danes the opportunity to have a party in the safe confines of their home.

Martin Jensen himself says (about the concert):

“Me, Myself Online started in 2020 with the idea of ​​providing a completely unique live experience in the safety of the home.

The concept for each show has grown bigger and bigger, and we now have hundreds of thousands of people tuning in to our stream each time.

It’s absolutely insane that it’s taken off so quickly and that’s also why I’ve been looking for the right partner to put on the greatest show ever.

AKKC is an obvious choice and I am so happy that they have agreed to go along with the idea.

This is going to be the biggest, prettiest, and most insane show in the history of Me, Myself Online. I look forward to going live on April 16 at 20:00 on Twitch. ”

The concert, which will be filmed by drones and will offer fireworks and pyrotechnics among other things, can be watched live on Martin Jensen’s Twitch channel on Friday 16 April from 20:00 to midnight.

Skyrocketing international career

The concert with the 29-year-old DJ Martin Jensen will be almost as wild as the skyrocket his career has taken since he released his first single in 2015.

When he followed up with ‘All I Wanna Do’ and ‘Solo Dance’ in 2016 his career just exploded. He has worked with major international stars such as Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, and Jason Derulo.

And his global hits like ‘Solo Dance’, ‘All I Wanna Do’ and ‘Nobody’, along with a number of other hits, have helped bring him over 2.5 billion streams worldwide.

World-famous on streaming services

On Spotify alone, he has over 12 million listeners every month, and he has surpassed 1 billion streams on the service.

On Facebook, according to TV2, he is the 2nd largest Danish international artist with 2.5 million followers, and similarly has 218,000 followers on Instagram and 517,000 regular subscribers on YouTube.

Then there are all the hundreds of thousands of followers he has at his concerts on Twitch. He is a Danish online artist who has also given large physical concerts, for example at Wembley Stadium, at the big electronic music festivals around the world, and of course at all the big Danish festivals.

The concert is presented by AKKC in collaboration with their sponsors who have secured the finances behind the large international streaming event.
