The programme for the European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 has been unveiled and it features events for every taste, e.g. a spectacular re-telling of Frans G.Bengtsons’s classic Viking legend “Red Serpent”,  a stunning Watermusic show around the harbour featuring singer and composer Oh Land and an interactive light installation that will make audiences able to send signals from a hidden terrace in Aarhus to the Embassy of Denmark in London which will light up and become a beacon of light. The more people who play, the brighter the building in London will be. People will create a 3D playable architecture that will shine bright across two countries.

The programme also features an array of international talent from wider Scandinavia, Europe and beyond, bringing global culture to the Central Denmark Region for the entire year.

Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 is supported by Central Denmark Region and all the municipalities in the region. It is deeply rooted in strong regional cooperation across the entire region.
