In the 1970s and 1980s, Aarhus became the centre for Denmark's rock music fostering many iconic bands such as TV-2 and Gnags.

Aarhus is home to the annual eight-day Aarhus International Jazz Festival, the SPo T Festival and the North Side Festival.

In 1657, octroi was imposed in larger Danish cities which changed the layout and face of Aarhus over the following decades.

Wooden city walls were erected to prevent smuggling, with gates and toll booths on the major thoroughfares, Mejlgade and Studsgade.

It is notable that the "Aa" spelling has been in use the longest.

"Aa" was also used by some major institutions between 1948-2011 as well, such as Aarhus university (AU) or the largest local sports club, Aarhus Gymnastikforening (AGF), who have never used the "Å"-spelling.

In the 900s an earth rampart for the defence of the early city was constructed, encircling the settlement, much like the defence structures found at Viking ring fortresses elsewhere.

The rampart was later reinforced by Harald Bluetooth, and together with the town's geographical placement, this suggests that Aros was an important trade and military centre.

Some Danish cities resisted the new spelling of their names, notably Aalborg and Aabenraa.

Århus city council explicitly embraced the new spelling, as it was thought to enhance an image of progressiveness.

Parts of the ramparts are still in existence today and can be experienced as steep slopes at the riverside and they have also survived in some place names of the inner city, including the streets of Volden (The Rampart) and Graven (The Moat).

Aarhus grew to become one of the largest cities in the country by the early 16th century.

In 2017, Aarhus has been selected as European Capital of Culture along with Paphos in Cyprus.
