Projects and cultural under-the-radar highlights of the summer #aalborg

With such great weather right now, I feel inspired to make a brief guide to some of the cool under-the-radar stuff that will happen in the city of Aalborg in Denmark, where I am currently living:

Today, July 16, we officially open the PARK BAR in  Platform4 - which is the successor of the highly popular STRAND BAR (beach bar) from last summer. Sunshine, dj's and cheap organic drinks. PARK BAR will be open during the summer, when the sun shines. Keep an eye on the website and our Facebook group for announcements. Read more about todays opening here.
Tonight, same place - Aalborg's favorite dubstep club, DUBASS, returns - this time featuring the Copenhagen-based Skank Sound System. Read more on the website.

Tomorrow, July 17, the second installment of Chill I Parken goes down in the park next to KUNSTEN, Aalborg's contemporary art museum. This is a must! Read more here.

August 18, the OpenDays festival will take place all over the city - over the weekend - including a double concert with us at Platform4 this Thursday. Come and experience Icelandic phenomenon Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson (world famous avantgarde artist) and the local Kiloton (who is signed to my label, Urlyd, and whose debut album we'll release in late August). Read more about the event here.

August 20-22, we'll convert the huge Østre Havn-harbour into the world's first SAIL-IN CINEMA - like a drive-in cinema, but for boats. This means you will be able to sail into the open air cinema and watch movies on Denmarks biggest canvas (104 sq. meters!). Film program to be announced shortly! If you don't have a boat, then don't worry - water bikes are available for rent. Free access, three nights, movies, warm-up concerts, popcorn and much more...

August 30, another round of Chill I Parken, this time at the BMX Stadium out in the western outskirts of the city (prime location). Aalborg's biggest chillout zone with live graffiti, dj's, live concerts and cheap bar. On sunny days more than 500 usually turn up. Afterparty at Viva La Revolution at night...

September 3, the official Kulturnat (Culture Night) all over the city, includes several projects in Platform4. One is an interactive art installation titled 'InsideOut' - and much more to come. Read more here.

September 17-18, we once again throw the world's prime 8bit event in Platform4 - the legendary BLIP FESTIVAL. This year it goes down in 4 places across the globe: New York, Tokyo, Sidney and...Aalborg. That's pretty awesome, I think. The world's best chiptune performers and 8bit visualists come to Aalborg from over the world to make shit hit the fan so hard your intestines will become pixelated! 🙂 More info here - or check out the New York-site.
