SPOT Festival is literally just around the corner. Next weekend, Aarhus will be taken over by the entire industry and by music lovers with a wristband ready to take on the 200 concerts in town. But… not everyone can afford a ticket, not everyone can spend an entire weekend at a festival, or, and this is quite simple, not everyone’s willing to spend an entire weekend with concerts. I know, shame on them, but these people exist.
This week, we’re trying to get ready for this important, local event. It’s usually a really busy weekend, but it might be, that you aren’t planning a busy weekend at SPOT. It might be, that you’re simply looking for an event open to the public where you can spend a few hours. Well, we’ve changed our guide this week, and we’ve found 5 events during SPOT Festival worth leaving the couch for.
