The stadium was built in 1961, and is a multi-purpose venue, housing events ranging from concerts to bingo to zumba and bodytoning. The stadium used to be the venue of choice for bigger artists, but since the 2002 completion of Nuuk Stadium, home of the Nuuk football team, all major artists—most recently[when?]Suzi Quatro--rather utilize the newer, spacier venue. Godthåbhallen is located merely 400 meters from Nuuk Stadium. An ice skating arena which is open to the public is right outside the hall.
