Plænen - The Open Air Stage

Over the past 40 years, Danish band TV-2 has developed from being an exponent of minimalist new rock of the 1980s to becoming one of the nation’s greatest bands. Their timeless music speaks to all generations and has become the centre stage for great emotions, whether partying or celebrating a shared sense of community. Classics such as Bag Duggede Ruder, Alt Hvad Hun Ville Var At Danse and De Første Kærester På Månen are just a small selection of the many, many hits that TV-2 has delivered since the band was born in 1980. Amazingly, the band still consists of the same four members who have delivered their music for over four decades.

TV-2 provides musical commentary on the present times, love and everyday life – always guided by a sense of warmth and scathing, diabolical irony – that manages to set themselves apart from the trends of the times. Contemporary social criticism has become a defining characteristic of Denmark’s happiest orchestra, as the band denotes itself.
