i About


Hello and welcome to the 1st weekend of November to Blues Heaven ‘formerly known as Frederikshavn Blues Festival’ at the mighty ARENA NORD.
This is the ultimate winter medicine, where the amazing atmosphere, mixing with friendly people and having exciting musical experiences will always be the festival’s brand. In addition, there is a good variety of food on offer.
As always there are 3 stages, a dance floor, and plenty of unreserved seating. The service level is high on all fronts, including the very popular VIP lounge and the fine-cooked gourmet cuisine from Arena Nord’s restaurant, as well as beer and wine ad libitum throughout the weekend.

The concept of using 2 stages occurred in the FFK Centre in Frederikshavn in 2006-2010, and in “Det Musiske Hus” in the years 2011-2016. People who have been to the previous Frederikshavn Blues Festivals over the 14 previous years say, “It’s like getting 15 different concerts”. There is a dinner break at night and this year there will be a 15-minute break between concerts on both stages.
This year we have a partnership with Hotel Scandic The Reef. We also have arrangements with other hotels and inns.

In recent years, there have been audience members from 17 different countries, and all 10 hotels in the area have been sold out. Many private people are helping and have offered travellers overnight accommodation.

Quality and service are key at ‘Blues Heaven’ and at Arena Nord. The festival’s assistants will make sure that it shines on all fronts.
We look forward to the next chapter in Frederikshavn’s blues story and we are 100% sure that we will all have an unforgettable experience on in Arena Nord.
A warm welcome to you and thank you to all who help make the 1st weekend of November the highlight of the year for blues, soul and blues/rock lovers.

Bluesy regards
