The local venues Elværket and Annexet functions as a creative haven, where local musicians can show off their talents, and concert goers can go wild.
The music house Elværket can be found on Rosenkildestien in Elsinore’s old power station, which the city put at their disposal. The music venue could, in 2011, celebrate their 20th anniversary simultaneously with the power plant’s 100 year anniversary. The purpose of the music venue is to secure the municipality’s amateur musicians good, cheap practice room facilities, thus contributing to an active and diverse local cultural life.
Besides 11 practice rooms, the house contains a much used concert stage.
Every year, bands from both home and abroad are gathered for Helsingør Festival (Elsinore music festival), which is hosted at Elværket. During the festival big international artists are listed side by side with alternative bands and amateur musicians.
