Copenhagen Club Culture Box To Lose Government Funding

Écrit par sur 18 janvier 2018

Nightlife in Copenhagen is set for a heavy blow as one of the city’s main clubs, Culture Box, will lose a substantial amount of funding from 2017.

Since 2005, the Danish government has provided the club with €240,000 (1,800,000 Danish kroner) per year, but that’ll end at the end of 2016. The club describes the planned cancellation of funding as a « very hard blow » as the money goes towards bookings and maintaining facilities.

The press release also reads: « We are shocked that The State of Denmark has decided to remove the cultural support for the venue, and by that the support for electronic music culture. »

Some people have lives; some people have music.

House and techno has had a heavy presence at the club since it opened, with the likes of Moritz von Oswald, Ellen Allien, DJ Koze and Nina Kraviz all playing.
