On 6 and 7 november, one of Denmark's most engaging live band takes on Pumpehuset, when De Underjordiske serves their phenomenal Danish-language rock'n'roll added to psychedelia and the pop craft of the 80s. With a myriad of concerts, De Underjordiske has built up a solid reputation as one of the country's foremost live bands. In short, the band is a force of nature on stage. Their performance showers forward and retreats like a mighty ocean. One minute it's almost quiet. Sacral, softly spoken guitar melodies accompany the Danish, emotive lyricism. Until the flames rumble on with relentless intensity. Eager tracks that cuddle the pop ear merge with grand rock tunes that build up and grab love and spirituality. It's an unspicable concert experience that both challenges and pampers. An experience that feels like a interplayed natural phenomenon, where sound, attitude and impressions reach an otherworldly level.

GRETA + Brimheim + Gro
All letters are actually capital in GRETA, and with her releases in the fall of '19 and spring '20 she has become one of the most talked about upcoming names at home. GRETA writes music that is borne of nostalgia and inspired by the future. She loves 80s synths and electronic grooves. In elaborate pop bubbles, her impressive and bright vocals live, while the gravitational gravity is felt in her lyrics about existential thoughts, the inner and outer contradictions of life, light and darkness. GRETA operates in an adventurous universe where the visual and sonic aesthetics are closely intertnical. She takes us into worlds where the familiar mingles with the stranger and challenges the understanding of pop and pop art.

"The Nature of Isolation and Loneliness"
After 8 months of distance, isolation and loneliness, you will have the opportunity to take part in a completely different live experience in Store VEGA: A Clock-Up performance of The Nature of Isolation and Loneliness (2019-2020), a performative study and manifestation of isolation and loneliness created by Hans Rosenström & Philip | Schneider to VEGA| Arts. The performance is followed by a guided meditation and a soothing sound bath. This soothing sound bath is an ambient concert by the musician Anders Rhedin, which takes us all out the other side with renewed vigour and connection to our inner and outer world. The traditional concert form is this evening dissolved and the audience experiences the works sitting and lying on yoga mats on the floor. The performers will be on the floor and on stage, and the evening's works and experiences will involve, encircling and leaving the participants with a special experience of togetherness. Finnish sound and installation artist Hans Rosenström and Danish performance duo Philip I Schneider, made up of composers and singers Josephine Philip and Hannah Schneider, have created a joint work in which VEGA's iconic concert hall is transformed into a total experience where all senses are activated. With a mixture of song, performance and sound, a work is created specifically for the occasion. In VEGA, the audience is invited on a journey into the nature of solitude, through fragmentary music and statements that escalate and eventually gather in a multifaceted choral work.
VEGA| ARTS has been realised with the support of the Danish Arts Foundation, the BikubenFonden, the Augustinus Foundation and the Nordic Culture Fund.
(The Nature of Isolation and Loneliness, Hans Rosenström; Philip|Schneider; Anders Redin, VEGA, 22 November)
Defecto offers a hell of a gut-butted, in-your-face attitude, while the lyrical takes a dive into personal distinctions of good and evil. Inspired by the ups and downs of life, the hard part is combined with the gentle, which has resulted in an album that is a culmination of what the band stands for, with massive riffs, catchy choruses and technical superiority. Defecto's path to the international metal scene has been successful, but also very hectic. In a very short time, the band has managed to play support for both Metallica and Rammstein, as well as shows at some of Europe's biggest rock festivals. This has established Defecto as a solid live band and with millions of streams across the streaming services, the quartet have proven that their sound and hell-and-feel are deeply reasoning with a very loyal fan base.
(Defecto, VEGA, 27 November)
With their unique combination of wooden organ, violins, distorted guitars, thunderous drums and thunder roars, the rock noir-band Kellermensch has in recent years rekindled rock music.

Government guidelines and recommendations for cultural institutions
"Det Ny Teater naturally follows the authorities' guidelines and recommendations for cultural institutions, so that you can safely go to the theatre. Although we have high ceilings and large foyer areas, we sell fewer than half the hall's seats for each construction. This means you get plenty of space. There will be a seat between you and an audience member you don't know. (If you are booking more than 2 tickets where you will sit together, please contact the theater's ticket office.) We have opened extra entrances to the audience foyers and there will be hand alcohol at all entrances. All surfaces normally touched are spritd off before each performance."
"VEGA holds concerts for a seated audience in order to meet the space and health requirements that we as a venue must comply with."
"Despite the authorities’ new corona requirements, we can still hold concerts at Pumpehuset. We have re-modelled our hall in a corona-friendly version that unites the energy of a venue with the cosiness of a German bierstube. This means tables and benches in our main hall, so it's possible to listen to our concerts while enjoying the company of good friends. The layout and the physical surroundings of the concerts and the concert hall has been formed in close collaboration with the authorities to make our concerts safe and secure for everyone."
"The safety and security of our audience, artists and employees is our top priority for us in DR Koncerthuset. We follow all current guidelines for running cultural events, and when you come to a concert with us, you can be sure that our staff will help you find yourself right in the hall and in our bar and foyer area. We currently conduct all our concerts with reduced audience capacity of no more than 500 people in the Concert Hall (including staff and cast members) and a small number in the other studios. Everyone in the audience and on stage is of course distributed with a safe distance, and we conduct the concerts according to the Ministry of Culture's current guidelines for cultural events with seated audiences."
"Tivoli encourages anyone with symptoms of illness not to go to Tivoli. People with symptoms should isolate themselves at home. If you have been ill, we also encourage you not to visit Tivoli until you have been symptom-free for 48 hours. All employees who have been in orange or red risk areas will be repatriated for a period of 14 days after returning home. We also encourage you not to visit Tivoli if you have visited a country in orange or red risk areas in the last 14 days.
We have, of course, arranged for hand alcohol to be placed around and on all rides. In addition, there are distance markings and invitations to keep right at busy locations in Tivoli. As a result of the authorities' updated precautions, guests must wear mouthbands when visiting eateries in the Garden. Shoe protectors are also required in a selection of rides, where they are distributed free of charge."
