HomeBrewed Blues Copenhagen
HomeBrewed Blues 9/11/2020 City: Copenhagen, Denmark Dances: Blues, Fusion A blues and fusion exchange, focused on good music and community driven activities.
Lots of live music and a dedicated room for both Fusion and Blues.
The event will be quite cheap (65 €) but we hope that everybody will do a little something to make the event awesome: Play a DJ set, organize an excursion, bake a cake, help decorating, help out at the bar or something similar.
We have a lovely venue with a bar, a sauna for late night relaxing, a cosy space to hang out and 2 dance floors.
