March 7, 2017 • 2 min read

If you love a good party, festivals and to travel, perhaps you should head to the festival Distortion in Copenhagen this spring? 

Between 31st of May to the 4th of June, Distortion takes place in central Copenhagen. It’s a festival celebrating international club culture and Copenhagen’s street life. Having approximately 100 000 guests per day it’s considered to be one of the largest gatherings in Europe. The festival isn’t located outside of the city (like many others in Scandinavia), it takes place on the streets of the inner city. It starts in the city districts of Nørrebro and Vesterbro and ends at the Copenhagen harbor.

During the festival, there’s plenty of things to do; you have street parties taking place in different districts between 16.00 – 22.00, distortion club taking place in different nightclubs and of course the final party. Even though the festival starts on May 31st, it’s Friday and Saturday 3-4th of June that has the biggest events. During the Distortion festival, Copenhagen’s street is almost turned into a huge nightclub. If you don’t like club music there is also a stage for classical music, pop-up restaurants and events for children.

A ticket for Distortion costs from DKK 650 (whole week). Read more about the festival and book a ticket on Distortion’s website.
