Copenhagen to get new concert location

Need for medium-sized venue driving renovation of Amager industrial building

An old industrial building on Kløvermarken in Amager is on its way to becoming Copenhagen’s newest medium-sized concert venue.

The people behind the recently closed Tap1 venue are driving the effort to create a music venue for shows that are too big for Vega, but too small to fill Forum or Parken.

Laust Christian Holm Poulsen, one of Tap1’s founders, confirmed the plan to DR Nyheder.

Filling a need
Tap1 recently closed and Falconer Salen is slated for renovation. There are even some questions about the future of the storied Forum.

Carl Christian Ebbesen, Copenhagen’s mayor for culture and leisure, said last week that he hoped that several million kroner would be allocated to renovate Valby Hallen and improve its acoustics.

“With Tap1’s closure and Falconer Salen’s renovation, there will be strong demand for a venue with space for an audience of 2,000 – 4000,” Ebbesen told Politiken.
