  • 🇳🇴 Norsk BluesNews om det nye program

    Den norske skribent Nina Hansen har været en flittig gæst på Blues Heaven igennem mange år, her giver Nina en norsk vinkel på festivalen.

    “De siste årene har festivalen Blues Heaven i Frederikshavn vokst seg større og større, og er et yndet reisemål også for norske bluesfans. Mange nordmenn har denne festivalen på sin blueskalender, og mange har booket overnatting og fer­jebilletter for lenge siden.”

    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 tickets@bluesheaven.dk. 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.

    However, if you do not wish to attend Blues Heaven 2020 then please consider the following options before 23rd September 2020.

    1 – All purchased tickets are refundable. For a refund please write “Refund” to billetkontor@arenanord.dk

    Please provide the order number as well as your bank details and account number.

    2 – Purchased tickets can be transferred to Blues Heaven 2021, 12th – 13th November 2021 and new tickets for this will be sent out in the future.

    Please provide the order number and write “Blues Heaven 2021” to billetkontor@arenanord.dk

    3 – Purchased tickets can be donated to secure the festival’s future

    Please provide the order number and write “Donate” to billetkontor@arenanord.dk

    Arena Nord will contact all ticket holders. If you do not wish to attend on 6th & 7th November 2020, an answer must be given to Arena Nord before 23rd September 2020. Ticket holders will be refunded the ticket price minus the ticket fee – refunds can take up to 30 days to process.

    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.

    Friday 6th Nov 18:00 – 01:00 (Doors open 16:00)

    EXTRA HOTEL ROOMS IN FREDERIKSHAVN

    Blues Heaven is now working closely with Frederikshavn’s largest hotel, Scandic The Reef. For several years now Denmark’s most prominent blues festival was held on the 1st weekend in November, which is week 44, but the festival will now take place on 6th & 7th November, which is week 45. Previously, the festival in Arena Nord coincided with the Swedish autumn school holidays. Scandic The. Reef works closely with Stena Line, and it meant that the hotel was often booked up with young Swedish families.

    This year, with the festival now taking place in week 45 we have an additional 210 rooms available as well as offering 1,500 sqm of the waterpark and an outdoor jacuzzi. Exclusive deals are now available with the extra hotel rooms in Frederikshavn.
