Copenhagen Club Culture Box To Lose Government Funding
Written by webmaster on May 18, 2016
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.
