Late Summer Festival originated in 2014 and was held with great success at the Royal Court Theater in Copenhagen… With the vision of offering the people on the Danish West Coast, as well as tourists, a classical music experience at a the highest level, the organizers chose Hvide Sande to form the framework – with the goal of helping reduce inequality on the cultural front in Denmark.
The organizers behind the festival, Anette and Helge Slaatto, have fallen in love with Hvide Sande, the nature, and the way everything works in the area – therefore it is set for them that the festival belongs here.

Are there limits to where in Denmark that classical music can be experienced?
We have taken up the fight against prejudice and traditions, and invite you to a number of unique concerts between sea and fjord.

The west coast of Jutland offers loads of opportunities and offers – this certainly also applies to the harbor city Hvide Sande, where especially Danish and German guests spend their holidays every year in the many holiday homes, located in the dune landscape along the North Sea. The offer for guests as well as locals ranges widely from water sports to fishing as well as culinary experiences. Late Summer Festival has since 2015 taken place in Hvide Sande, which is also home to the annual Hvide Sande Masterclass, which also has the vision to get classical music at the highest level to the outskirts of Denmark.

Six years after the first notes were played in Copenhagen, the Late Summer Festival was back when an extra concert was played in Koncert Kirken at Blågårds Plads in 2020. The success has been repeated since then – where the festival takes the West Coast energy back to the capital for an extra concert in the Concert Church at Blågårdsplads in Copenhagen.
