Copenhagen Jazz Festival – round midnight
As night falls on Copenhagen Jazz Festival, the many local and visiting musicians usually gather in their preferred hangouts, exchanging tall tales and loose jams in front of a festive audience – Macy Gray, Bill Frisell, Lady Gaga and many others have all been spotted jamming out after hours at places such as La Fontaine, Montmartre and Christiania. The festival can’t make any promises regarding attendance for obvious reasons, but be sure to check out these venues and jams if your festival nights don’t have a strict curfew – you might just find yourself caught up in jazz history!
At Christiania Børneteater you can catch live concerts from midnight and Jazzjam from 02.00 AM, while tradition-heavy Jazzhus Montmartre has let three young Danes – Zier Romme, Felix Moseholm and Malte Arndal – take charge of the nightly jams with a variety of Danish and international guests.
Copenhagen’s oldest jazz club, La Fontaine, is keeping up with tradition with an alternating trio of local and international artists accompanying an open invitation to join them on stage every night at 11.45 PM. Finally, musicians Nikolaj Hess, AC and Mikkel Hess’ unit Spacelab returns to Copenhagen Jazz Festival, performing every night at Cava Bar from 00.30 AM.
