Venue notes: Saltlageret, Copenhagen

Defunct rock venue (1975-1987) that hosted numerous punk and underground bands during its lifespan. It was located at Kongevej 10, 1610 København. Capacity was about 400. The passage below is a slightly cleaned up Google translation of the venue description that appears on the Saltlageret page on the Rockens Danmarkskort (Danish Rock Museum) website.

"From 1975 to 1987 the former pumping station on Kongevej 10 was used as a venue called Saltlageret. The venue was a popular Danish punk scene in the early 1980s and housed, among other things, punk festivals Concert of the Moment in 1979 and Nosferatu in 1982 and 1983. The place was also used for more traditional rock concerts, theatrical and dance performances. Saltlageret was demolished May 18, 1987 to make way for Tycho Brahe Planetarium."
