“Impressice good sound”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I must say I'm impressed by the good sound I experienced on a gig with The Safety Fire, Periphery and Between the buried and Me. Pretty complex music, but they managed it perfectly. Not often I bother to make a comment about something like this. (This was a Lille Vega)

I've attended two concerts in Vega (Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Fat Freddy's Drop). Vega is a fantastic venue - great sound, great bars, great atmosphere.

“Nice Cafe full of civilized drinkers.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2011

Went to see a reggae festival here. Vega was expensive (like all of Kobenhavn), but the show was good and the crowd was freindly. The venue had a good sound system and was a huge hall. I would go see another concert their.
