Copenhagen Jazz Festival

Jazz aficionados will find the cosmopolitan city of Copenhagen the perfect place to be this summer, with the 31st annual Jazz Festival taking place in the Danish capital.

Music fans from around the world are set to descend on this cultural city to witness hundreds of artists perform all varied forms of jazz between July 3-12, 2009. The undoubted highlight is set to be the 'Sing the Truth' tribute to Nina Simone at the Copenhagen Concert Hall on July 4.

The music will not be confined to just the more established venues in the city. Daily street parades, waterfront evening concerts and concerts especially for children take place throughout the festival, with the region's clubs and cafes welcoming a host of international acts to perform.
