For us, a good name is an artist who can create a great atmosphere, captivate their audience and give them a unique experience.

Locals from Sønderjylland and visitors to the region have the chance to share great musical experiences, as Kultur i Syd presents the fantastic artists that will be performing in the region. Great names from both Denmark and abroad have appeared on stage in Sønderjylland in recent years.

Legendary band Toto played at Mølleparken in Sønderborg, as have Anastacia, Alice Cooper and Tom Jones. Augustenborg Palace Park has been the venue for concerts with Roger Waters, Eric Clapton and even opera legend Luciano Pavarotti. And in Alsion’s concert hall, artists such as Efterklang, Tina Dickow and Art Garfunkel have delivered an intimate atmosphere and fantastic sound.

What these concerts have in common is that they’re all arranged by Kultur i Syd. The active cultural association has managed to attract top-class international names to Sønderjylland. And often it isn’t just the locals that clap and sing along when these great artists take to the stage, as Kultur i Syd has also attracted visitors from far and wide. Some of the artists manage to attract people from even further afield, says Event Manager Jes Johansen: 
 

“We held a concert featuring Danish band Efterklang, who are well-known for their dedicated fans throughout the world. The concert was attended by fans from 14 different countries – even from Japan.”

Besides concerts, Kultur i Syd arranges stand-up comedy which takes place on a variety of stages throughout the region. There’s something to suit all tastes, with a selection of entertainment that appeals to young and old alike. Performers range from household names to brand new emerging talents. 

“For us, a good name is an artist who can create a great atmosphere, captivate their audience and give them a unique experience. And if the audience is equally responsive, then you can be sure of a great show,” says Jes Johansen.
