More than a million visitors thus far
Halfway through the 2017 programme, more than a million visitors have attended cultural performances, exhibitions and events in Aarhus, one of this year's European Capitals of Culture. "What a fantastic first half year we've had," exclaims Programme Director Juliana Engberg. Aside from attracting many visitors, Aarhus organisers report a rain of positive reviews and ratings. Case in point: More than 92,000 tickets were sold for epic Viking drama "Red Serpent" performed on the roof of Moesgaard Museum. ”The greatest saga ever told”, wrote The Guardian.
Upcoming highlights include the five-day international festival EUTOPIA that includes performances by artists from more than 15 countries, and the Little Rebellions festival to be held in August in Aarhus and the Central Denmark Region. During autumn, the Capital of Culture offers several events on architecture and gastronomy. Come November, Creativity World Forum will bring together 2000 creative heads from all over the world in Aarhus.
