Aarhus Festival-What Is It?

The Aarhus festival is an annual festival held at Denmark's second city.

Emphasis is put on cultural related events and the intellectual of them.

The Aarhus festival is most definitely a multi media event.  Its exhibition style is second to none.

Film is another huge part of the festival.

Then of course what would a festival be without music.  You will find jazz, opera and classical music dominating the festival.

10 days of the festival you can find some sort of events taking place at almost every venue in town.

Old and new every hall, concert hall, municipal building, libraries and such are utilized.

Of course we cant forget all the parks that play mainstream to many events at the Aarhus Festival.

Aarhus Festival-Its Huge

If you want to talk events at the Aarhus festival you would be talking about over 300 different events.

It features some of Europes greatest artists to play the stage.

Every year the Aarhus festival puts a lot of effort into changing the theme of the festival to keep up the originality that the festival has been built on.

Themes of the past have included Asia, Hans Christian Anderson and women in culture.

It seems that no matter what theme is decided on the performances are always top notch.

performers from around the world travel to the Aarhus Festival to perform alongside the local talent.

Also, as of late the festival has been focusing on bringing in the youthful talent.

Aarhus Festival-Who, What, Where, When And Why

The Aarhus festival has grown from a little fringe to a huge festival that seems to uncover hidden talents every year.

The thing about the size is that it has grown so big that there is something for every culture and taste.

The Aarhus festival runs from Late August and runs into early September.  Of course it is held in Aarhus and is renowned for its music and theatre.

If you are planning to visit the Aarhus festival you should know the events start early in the morning and continue on very late into the evening.

There really is no chance of seeing everything but you really will want to do some serious planning to see as much as you can.

Some of the events can be very expensive but you will be glad to know that even on a limited budget the festival offers many, many free festivities and activities.

Non the less you will never be disappointed if you decide to visit the Aarhus Festival.

      Dale - 10 days of festival with 300 events is a lot of festival. That is not to mention the extra 10 pounds you gain from all of that special food and drink as a bonus, but that probably depends on how you regard the need to purchase a larger belt before going home again.
