With a limited number of place available, therefore, this is aimed at pure jazz lovers.

Total The 10-day festival features both local and international musicians, including Italian pianist Fabio Giachino and his trio; Veronica Mortensen and world-renowned Danish bassist Mads Vinding; and various members of the Koppel family.

Prøvehallen primarily attracts a local audience but also draws visitors from the rest of Copenhagen.

This is sheer, unadulterated joy for jazz enthusiasts.
