SPOT 2020 Cancelled – the Festival is Working Hard to Organize Several SPOT Events This Summer and Autumn

mar 20, 2020

The ongoing Corona crisis has dramatically affected the Danish event business. SPOT’s board of directors and leaders have therefore come to the conclusion that it is unrealistic to complete this year’s ambitious festival.

Being the oldest and biggest showcase festival for upcoming Danish and Nordic music, SPOT is an important meeting place where international business and media contacts can experience the music and meet each other.

The uncertainty is also huge internationally speaking. We have already received cancellations from international agents, members of the press, journalists, publishers and festival organizers.

Our newly formed plan is to organize a bunch of concerts and business-related activities during summer and autumn to put a spotlight on new Danish music productions.

SPOT is already in contact with several partners and suppliers, and we will continue to plan these events over the next days and weeks.

SPOT will refund all bought festival tickets and delegate tickets (full refund except for payment card fees). For further info regarding refunds please contact


SPOT Festival 2021 takes place May 6th – 8th in central Aarhus.
