For over three decades, Grøn Koncert has been setting the summer mood for thousands of festival fans.

This may not be as crazy, and indeed gross, as Roskilde, but it’s definitely worth a visit.

As the name of the concert suggests (‘Grøn’ is Danish for ‘green’), it is organised by Tuborg, one of Denmark’s biggest exports and a proud supporter of many music events, including the Roskilde Festival and NorthSide in Aarhus.

What makes this event unique is not just its line-up of solely Danish artists, but also its charitable nature.

All the profits go to the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation (Muskelsvindfonden), which works on giving those affected by the disease and their families a better life.

Every year the event tours the country before playing its final concert in the capital at Valbyparken towards the end of July.

Acts this year include De Eneste To, a duo who played at NorthSide last year, and Danish rapper Emil Stabil (see below) whose catchy lyrics are played at almost every flat party across the country.

D-A-D, one of Denmark’s most loved rock bands, will be taking the stage, following a six-year break from performing. Suspekt and Nik & Jay are also confirmed.

In case you are unable to attend the event in Copenhagen on July 31, Grøn Koncert will be held in nearby Næstved the day before.
