Post by Mariannen »

Dear Cohenites

The registration for the 13th Leonard Cohen Event in Copenhagen is now open.

The official dates are August 2-4, 2024

The event is not commercial, so the participation fees are required to cover all the expences associated with organizing an international event including the venues, bands, the hiring of technical and musical equipment, the souvenirs and so on.

I can only echo what everyone else has said! Thank you for organising what is shaping up to be a great event and I am very much looking forward to being back in Copenhagen, a city I used to visit frequently but haven’t been to since December 2019.

Do you have any suggestions yet for suitable hotels?

Thanks

Totally agree with all the comments !

I know of several people that booked the Scandic Palace hotel. Be prepared for some stiff rates when booking hotel accommodation in central Copenhagen

Thanks Hugo. Yes, Copenhagen hotel prices are almost invariably eye watering. We usually stay at the Clarion at the airport but I suspect that would not be such a good idea for the event!

Hi Wendy, Radisson Blu is a good choice and not far from the center.
Yours, Amrei

Unfortunately a bit pricey for me Amrei. I regularly use Motel One in England & Scotland so I thought I’d try their Copenhagen hotel, about 2/3 price of Radisson for a decent sized room ( smaller options are available!)

We booked an Airbnb apartment. Maybe this would be an option for you?
