In a strange post-apocalyptic time when no one knows what tomorrow might bring, new ideas, new thoughts, new initiatives arise. In just forty eight hours, Nordic Noise 2020: Streaming for Vengeance became a reality.

A  two day Heavy Rock Festival live-streamed from one location in Jutland, Denmark (Black Box in Videbæk) and one in Zealand, Denmark (Karosserifabrikken in Helsingør). Two bands play live in different parts of the country every day. 8 bands in total. Everything is professionally streamed live with multiple camera angles and recorded with the best audio equipment, so viewers are guaranteed a top professional experience that can match the best within the format.

Nordic Noise 2020: Streaming for Vengeance takes place on May 8 and 9, the two days that the original edition of Nordic Noise was due to be held in the venue Amager Bio in Copenhagen, Denmark. Instead, the festival is made into a live stream festival, free to the public, in the name of rock ‘n’ roll. So all those who have bought tickets to the original edition of Nordic Noise and everyone else around the world for that matter, now have the opportunity to see eight of Denmark’s best bands in the genre in front of the screen at home. The eight bands and their performance times are:

Time schedule – Friday 8 May 2020  – Venue
22:00 – 22:45 – Boys From Heaven  – Zealand
21:00 – 21:45  – Killing – Jutland
20:00 – 20:45  – Chronicle  – Zealand
19:00 – 19:45  – Anoxia – Jutland

Time schedule – Saturday 9 May 2020  – Venue
22:00 – 22:45 – I’ll Be Damned – Jutland
21:00 – 21:45 – Black Oak County – Zealand
20:00 – 20:45 – Freddy And The Phantoms – Jutland
19:00 – 19:45 – Justify Rebellion – Zealand

All times stated are CET.

This is a festival that has the opportunity to be seen by an audience of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Rock and heavy metal is a universal music genre and it is expected that Nordic Noise 2020: Streaming for Vengeance will reach a big international audience. Danish rock and metal has a long, proud history with bands like Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, Pretty Maids, Volbeat and D-A.D. Expect Nordic Noise 2020: Streaming for Vengeance to show the new breed and cream of rock and metal out of Denmark!

At the same time, the festival organisers would like to appeal to the understanding of the importance of the fact that music has a value. They would therefore appreciate the support of both the performing artists, the two venues and the festival. All donations transferred to will be distributed among all parties that are a part of Nordic Noise: Streaming For Vengeance.

Michael H. Andersen, Nordic Noise spokesman, states: “Instead of laying flat on our backs and waiting for someone to help us, we have taken action on what may be the world’s first  two day heavy rock live stream festival at two locations in each end of the country. From when the idea arose on Wednesday morning this week until we today (Friday) sent out a press release, we have booked eight bands, two venues, have a crew and media partners in place, a graphic identity and concept/name fixed, and in one week the festival takes place.. Often the best ideas arise spontaneously with the right people around you and I believe this is an event that will go into the Danish music history, at least within the heavy rock genre”

”The Nordic Noise Festival has for years been one of the highlights of spring for all rock lovers! It is truly unique, in this day of age where getting new rock music radio play is almost impossible, to give both the established acts as well as the upcoming the possibility to get on stage before a crowd. It would be almost unbearable if 2020 were to be the first year in eight years without The Nordic Noise Festival and for us at Karosserifabrikken, as an independent live venue, it was an easy decision to support this streaming initiative” says founder Anders Nannerup.
