An audience of 119 came along to listen to Brandt’s interpretations of Dylan’s music at the concert, which was sold out in ten minutes.

“The concert was simply fantastic”, says Grit Jørgensen from the @lkymia party committee, which helped to arrange the event. Brandt’s performance was also transmitted live on Radio Denmark.

The university was chosen as the setting because Bob Dylan’s career was launched at the American universities.
