The Riverboat Jazz Festival offers classic jazz with a Danish twist. The oldest jazz festival in Denmark began in 1966 and takes over the streets, squares and lakes of Silkeborg, in cafés, restaurants, churches, 4 large tents and, of course, aboard riverboats. With over 40,000 visitors, 80 bands, 140 free concerts and 30 ticketed jazz cruises, this is one of the biggest jazz festivals in Scandinavia. Styles range from New Orleans and Dixieland jazz to swing, gospel, big band and jam sessions.
Dinamico is yearly awaited meeting for the lovers of contemporary circus, music and theathre. A week of shows greets the audience in one of the most picturesque parks (a former citadel) in the city of Reggio Emilia. A "community in the community", that rediscovers a "slow" approach to life, the sharing of practices and experiences, the mishmash, the love for and in the organic food and its products. Dinamico collaborates with an organic farm, La Collina, to supply bio-dynamic food and to host all the artists in its grounds.
