Hosting around 250 concerts a year, VEGA ranks among the nation's most popular and respected music venues. Focus is on rhythmical music, but nearly all genres are covered from electronic to hiphop.The building that now houses VEGA was originally called The People's House. It was erected in 1956 to the design of architect Vilhelm Lauritzen, who is also known for other buildings typical of that period, i.a. the Radiohuset (Radio House), and the old terminal at the Copenhagen Airport. Following a major renovation in 1996, the building re-emerged as VEGA, House of Music.Cool retro interiorVEGA is one of the youngest buildings in Denmark to be listed for special architectural interest. Design features such as the dark wood-panelling, the mahogany floors, the friezes and the inventive details of railings and lamps make this building an architectural gem.Nightclub and upcoming bandsVEGA may be renowned for its concerts and the Lille Vega nightclub, but it has plenty of other pleasures to offer. There's the street-level IDEAL BAR, featuring a myriad of clubbing events Wednesday to Saturday, just to mention one.Store VEGA (Big Vega), one of two stages, has a standing capacity of 1500 or a seating capacity of 800.
