Promus - the music community of Aarhus
Promus is the community and networking center for both the music industry and the musicians in Denmark. Located in Aarhus, our main objective is to focus on the city’s rich tradition for new music talent, but also to support, motivate, and help new businesses get a foothold in the music business of tomorrow. We see ourselves as the bridge between the established music business and the new emerging talent – not only in Aarhus, but throughout the country - and are constantly working on tying to two together through networking arrangements, courses and seminars, workshops, mentor programs, business advice and office facilities – and especially through our partnership
with the SPOT Festival, where we produce and coordinate a string of activities at the SPOT+ -conference part of the festival.
As a meeting point for skills, networking and production, Promus is the first of its kind in Denmark.
Promus houses 20 work units that can be rented for shorter or longer periods – new shared office facilities for music industry players - as well as three production rooms which can be used for anything music-related, including showcasing, production performers, presentations, recording, production and much more.
For the growth layer in Aarhus Promus has introduced a mentor scheme where new players can find advice and support from the established music industry.
Consultancy is one of our core focus areas – and it is not only aimed at the growth layer. Help and good advice about music industry issues, contracts, etc. are available to everyone.
Promus also regularly arranges courses, panel discussions and debates on topical issues in the music industry.
