  • SPOT is an annual music festival in the city of Aarhus, Denmark, showcasing up-and-coming Danish and Scandinavian talent. Close to two hundred artists and bands from most genres of contemporary popular music - such as rock, hip hop, electronic music - play various stages in and around the concert halls and music venue of Musikhuset. Around 8,000 people attend the 100-200 concerts, including 1,500 from the music business, with close to a quarter of these from companies abroad. Speakers also participate in panel discussions and give lectures on various music industry topics. For example, they answer musicians' questions on "How to make it in the US" and participate in debates on topics including file sharing and the future of the album. While the audience is mainly local, the most quoted of its stated aims is to promote Danish and Scandinavian music to the international music business, from record companies and concert organisers to agents and the music press. Trying to please both camps, a curious, local music audience and an international music business crowd, is occasionally a source of friction. (en)
