There's nothing quite like the universal language of music to bridge people and cultures. Amidst the excitement of the Paris Olympics, five Danish musicians will grace the stage with a total of 30 concerts hosted at the Denmark Pavillion. And guess what? You're invited, free of charge!

When the world's eyes turn to the Olympics in Paris this summer, Danish culture and music will take center stage. VisitDenmark, Le Bicolore / Maison du Danemark and ROSA (Danish Rock Council) presents five Danish acts in The Denmark Pavilion during the Olympics in Paris this summer. From July the 26th to August the 10th,  the sound of Denmark will resonate through 30 free concerts, enveloping the Denmark Pavilion with its melodies.

The five Danish artists, selected for this unique performance, will demonstrate experience and a high artistic level and represent the diversity and depth of Danish music with the potential to captivate both French and international audience.

The Denmark Pavilion is located centrally in Paris by Maison du Danemark on Avenue des Champs-Elysées and is open from July 26 to August 11, 2024. Concerts take place in the adjacent Danish church, Frederikskirken, which is converted into a cultural venue for the occasion, hosting smaller concerts.

Each artist will present two daily showcase concerts over three consecutive days, each lasting approximately 20 minutes. The concerts will be held in the afternoon and early evening.

BRIMHEIM represents one of the most striking talents in the alternative pop and rock scene - both in Denmark and internationally.
