Thursday concert on the Amfi stage

Niels Skousen, the living legend in Danish music history, received the honorary award at this year's Odense Live Award for his long musical career and for being 'one of the country's lyrical masters'. Skousen, who even lived in Svendborg as a child, has Funen in his heart.

At the same award ceremony, Knægt was recognised as 'talent of the year'. Asger Nordtorp, the face behind Knægt, writes in Danish - young, exciting, both intricate and straightforward. Asger Nordtorp is also sometimes part of his brother's band (Guldimund) and is therefore used to the big stages.
