On Wednesday, February 24th, Frost Bites welcomes legendary Danish artist Allan Olsen, as he and his 35 years of professional experience guest the festival.
Allan Olsen started out playing small local venues and pubs in the 70s, but has since then become a veritable household name. Record releases have gone platinum, live performances receive widespread critical acclaim, and Allan Olsen has built up a loyal fanbase through the years, who are always waiting to see what’s next.
In 2015 Olsen debuted as an author, with the memoir ‘Tilfældigt i Strejfet’. That same year was packed full of touring and recording, and Allan Olsen shows no signs of slowing down. This means that Frost Festival will be guested by a musician in his prime.
Now Allan Olsen is returning to how it all started: the little shows. At Frost Bites, Olsen gives his audience a chance to get up-close and personal, showing his fans that dedication goes both ways, and taking the time to thank them for their support through the years. The relationship between audience and performer has never been stronger.
Hosting and attending Frost Bites
In collaboration with Tuborg Musik, we give you the unique opportunity of hosting an intimate concert with some of Denmark’s most interesting musicians. These concerts are limited to approximately 30 guests. No tickets are sold, attendance is won through answering questions on each event page.
If you want to be a host, upload a video of your venue by clicking on the submission link, or upload a picture and a description marked by the hashtag #frostbites16 on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The only requirements for the venue are: it has to have a capacity for approximately 30 people and be situated in the Copenhagen area.
We are looking for all kinds of alternative places for these concerts. This means if you have a great space that you think could facilitate a Frost Bites event, we want to hear from you. We are looking for all kinds of creative input, so don’t limit yourself.
Frost Festival will of course handle everything practical and guide you through the process of hosting the concert.
The deadline for venue submission is January 29nd at 12’o clock.
