Tonight on Pride Stage: Take me back Tuesday

The opening night on Pride Square will be a happy, swinging trip down memory lane with big band music, disco, amazing vocal performances and crooning.

Copenhagen Pride Week’s opening night on Pride Stage begins immediately after the official opening speech has been held by Copenhagen Pride’s chairperson Lars Henriksen on 14th of August, 2018. This night is all about revisiting all these classic hits that you know more or less by heart, and genres vary from swing, jazz and musical to disco, pop and schlager. The host this year is Danish journalist and theatre critic Jakob Steen Olsen.

Just like the last couple of years, the show is kicked off by Big Dipper Big Band who will make sure that this evening on stage will be off to a swinging start.
In between the two sets from Big Dipper Big Band you are in for some truly spectacular vocal performances when singers Annemette Vedel Augustesen and Sanne Amanda Sommer take the stage accompanied by pianist Rasmus Kjær.

To take you safely from swing to pop and disco, local all-girls band Me Jane will serve an hour of proud covers that are bound to make you both sing and dance along. To finish off Tuesday night, Copenhagen Pride has invited the hugely popular Danish actor, singer and dancer Silas Holst to take the stage along with his Flamingo Orchestra for a performance showcasing the very best of Danish pop hits and international oldies but goldies.
