Horsens is a culture- and concert city known beyond Danish borders. Over the last two decades many of the world’s most famed artists have performed in Horsens with large shows (as much as 85.000 spectators) which has helped brand Horsens as the city of stadium rock concerts

Horsens is reaching for the stars

Rolling Stones, U2, Bon Jovi, Madonna, Paul McCartney ...

The list of great names who have visited Horsens is long. The organiser of these shows is Horsens & Friends. The purpose of the concerts is not to generate a profit, but to create big cultural experiences for the inhabitants and guests of the city. The concerts have also assisted in creating a positive development with an increase in population, a strong image and a vibrant cultural life as a result.

In connection with the large stadium concerts, the city is turned upside down and the city centre is turned into a festival area where you can warm up for the concert with various activities and concerts. Culture is part of the city’s DNA.
