Blues Heaven Festival, 6th & 7th November, Arena Nord, Frederikshavn announces program change and 500 seated capacity limits.

Now in its 15th year, Denmark’s largest and multi-award-winning blues/soul festival Blues Heaven will deliver another fantastic program in the heart-warming atmosphere that always arises when the audience and some carefully selected musicians and singers meet. Last year, the festival attracted audiences from 17 different countries and all hotels in the North Jutland area were sold out many months in advance.

This year, the festival will be a little different than originally planned because it is sadly not possible for overseas artists to attend due to the current quarantine rules. Instead, we have selected 11 award-winning bands from 10 different European countries to perform.

At present we are only permitted a maximum of 500 people in Arena Nord, so the artists will all perform from the one main stage to a seated audience.

There are only 50 day-tickets left. We have a waiting list for all ticket types via We can only release additional tickets if the authorities increase the number of people allowed to attend.

Purchased tickets are still valid for this year’s Blues Heaven Festival on 6th and 7th November – please remember to bring your ticket.

Blues Heaven Festival is a world-renowned festival and in 2018 we were named “International Festival of the Year” by French online magazine Zicazic and in January 2019, we were named “2nd Best Festival in the World” by Polish magazine Twój Blues. In addition, Blues Heaven Festival organiser Peter Astrup won “Hoochie Coochie Man of the Year” in 2018 at the Danish Music Awards. In January 2020, Peter received this year’s award for “Keeping the Blues Alive” in Memphis, Tennessee. This award is the highest accolade that can be granted to any non-musicians and has only ever been awarded 3 times in the past to people outside of the United States.

We look forward to this year’s musical highlights and being Europe’s largest event with blues/soul music.
