Summer season highlights
For an international audience, just taking in the scenery at Tivoli Gardens is a special experience. The lushness of the gardens, the exotic architecture, and the spectacular lights at night are truly unique. “I didn’t think it would be like this,” is an often-heard phrase from international visitors.
Danes value the scenery, too. In fact, it is the prime reason to visit according to Tivoli’s visitor surveys. But Danes also know to check out the daily programme of events before or during their visit so as not to miss a great concert, show or event. The Tivoli website or Tivoli app are available in English to aide the international visitor.
A few highlights from the summer season program in 2019 are:
Tom Jones in concert at Tivolis Open-Air Stage 5 July 2019
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performing at Tivoli Concert Hall 28 August – 1 September 2019
Summer Classic at Tivoli Concert Hall throughout the summer presenting star singers, instrumentalists and ensembles and Tivoli Copenhagen Phil
Divas in Glass at the Glass Hall Theatre, a musical show celebrating some of the many wonderful singers who have performed at Tivoli: Ella, Marlene, Eartha…
A weekly highlight is the fireworks display Saturday nights
Halloween in Tivoli
Tivoli decorated with 20,000 real pumpkins for Halloween, and the lighting scheme changes to orange for that eerie, autumnal ambience. All the rides are up and running, exactly as during the summer season. In fact, extra rides are brought in and Tivoli’s haunted house is only open for Halloween. The many shops and stalls sell decorative items and Halloween costumes and props.
Christmas in Tivoli
Christmas in Tivoli is a favourite season for many because of the intense Christmas feeling created by snug village environments, the hundreds of Christmas trees and approximately one million fairy lights. This season lets you sample Danish Christmas from foods to ornaments to gift items.
This Christmas, Tivoli has the world premiere of The Snow Queen in the Concert Hall. Queen Margrethe designs the sets and costumes, Yuri Possokhov is choreographer and Danish pop icon Oh Land composer.
Other news in 2019
In 2019 the Tivoli Youth Guard is celebrating its 175-year anniversary, making it the world’s oldest youth guard. This marching band was formed by Tivoli founder Georg Carstensen himself as an honorary guard. Today, it is one of the best musical educations a child can get in Denmark, and many of the youth guard members, who are from 8 to 16 years old, go on to become professional musicians. The Tivoli Youth Guard can be seen and heard in parades every weekend and they will play several concerts throughout the summer season.
No less than five rides will be new or upgraded substantially in 2019. The largest of the projects, The Milky Way-rollercoaster, opens in November. The other four projects open between April and June.
