The closed down National Aquarium on the outskirts of Copenhagen is brought back to life, when FROST fills up the empty fish tanks and museum halls with music and other surprises at this year’s grand opening.
For many years, the aquarium has been a much appreciated excursion spot for people interested in life beneath the surface. In 2012, however, all tanks were emptied and all fish moved into a new and modern aquarium. Now, the old aquarium lives a quiet life. Until February 1st, when FROST takes over the old building for one night and creates an intense and extraordinary concert experience!
The drained tanks, faded ornaments and dark corridors will be flooded with music from Danish live darlings, When Saints Go Machine. The band’s two albums, appropriately named “Konkylie” and “Infinity Pool”, have strong references to the sea, and the seeking and haunted atmosphere of the albums contributes to the feeling of exploring the museum after the ultimate closing hour. For support, upcoming artist Karl William will dive into drowsy R’n’B tunes.
To complete the evening, we have teamed up with our main sponsor, Royal Beer, and, as an extra ‘treat’ for the audience, we provide complimentary shuttle bus service to and from the National Aquarium. Busses leave from Ingerslevsgade (by DGI-byen), Copenhagen V at 8 pm. The busses go back to Copenhagen between 11.15 pm and 12 – only guests with tickets including transport can ride the busses back to Copenhagen.
It is mandatory to leave your coat and bigger bags in the wardrobe. The wardrobe costs 20 DKK and will be manned by the FROST crew all night.
Don’t miss this chance to dive into the deep blue with FROST and When Saints Go Machine. There are only a limited amount of tickets for this event, so don’t sleep on it… Anchors aweigh!
The grand opening at National Aquarium is part of the collaboration with Region Hovedstaden and supported by Royal Beer, Wondercool Copenhagen, Sennheiser and the Municipality of Gentofte.
