Jazzhus Montmartre, Copenhagen

Jazzhus Montmartre, Copenhagen


Det er med blødende hjerte, at vi må meddele, at Montmartre indstiller alle kommende koncertaktiviteter.
(English below).

Corona-begrænsningerne på vores kapacitet resulterer i, at vi kun må bruge 35 af vores 85 siddepladser, hvilket ikke hænger sammen økonomisk. Situationen tvinger os nu til at indstille alle koncerter. Montmartre har de sidste 10 år været drevet non-profit, og vi har ikke overskydende midler til at overleve denne krise.
Vi havde håbet på, at restriktionerne ville blive lempet, eller at statens hjælpepakker kunne få os igennem krisen, men desværre.

Oven i corona-krisen så blev Montmartre ikke godkendt til at blive regionalt spillested af Statens Kunstfond i foråret, på trods af at vi blev godkendt af Københavns Kommune. Den økonomiske støtte ville ellers have sikret, at Montmartre kunne komme gennem krisen og fortsætte med koncerter i 2021-2024.

Der er ikke kun kommet vand indover rælingen, der er hul i skroget. Hvis København og Danmarks flagskib i jazzen ikke skal gå til bunds, så skal vi have en økonomisk redning fra stat, kommune, fonde eller sponsorer. Vi vil i den kommende tid undersøge mulighederne for Montmartres overlevelse.

Alle billetkøbere vil blive kontaktet, og deres køb vil blive refunderet.
Vi håber, at I vil have tålmodighed med os.

For yderlige info kan I læse pressemeddelelsen på vores hjemmeside.


Montmartre cancels all coming concerts

Dear All,
It is with a bleeding heart that we must inform you that Montmartre is canceling all upcoming concert activities.

The Corona limitations on our capacity result in us only being allowed to use 35 of our 85 seats, which is not economically durable. The situation now forces us to cancel all concerts. Montmartre has been operating non-profit for the last 10 years and we do not have the surplus funds to survive this crisis.

The Copenhagen City Council had earlier this year pledged to give 1 million DKK a year going forward, but the Danish State’s Arts Council didn’t follow suit, and with Corona on top this has led to an unsustainable situation.

If Copenhagen and Denmark's flagship in jazz are not sink, then we must have a financial rescue from the state, commune, foundations or sponsors. We will examine the possibilities for Montmartre's survival in the coming period.

All ticket buyers will be contacted and their purchases will be refunded.
Please be patient with us.

For further info you can read the press release on our website.

The US - the new butt of the world. No performances inside the US, banned from the European Union. Old opera performances from the MET via streaming (but(t) free), no outlook, China is out of the question. Japan? Dr. Fauci (the genius, but not responsible for anything) doesn't know about a vaccine. So why not just learn knitting? Oh, that factory is closed too.
