Copenhagen Distortion Festival 2018 is here
Distortion Festival 2018 arrives in Copenhagen
The biggest and best bloc party comes to town as Copenhagen Distortion Festival gets fully loaded at the end of May to catapult us into the summer festival seasons. With acts including Ghostface Killah and Eats Everything hold on tight because it's a thrilling ride!
May 30th - June 3rd
One of our favourite festivals of the summer to take place in Copenhagen, we can't wait for this year's Distortion Festival - a celebration of music, people, and chaos! While we're busy planning which live music acts to catch over the 5 day bonanza, here are some of the highlights from the Distortion team's programme.
20th Anniversary of Distortion
This year it's the 20th Anniversary of Distortion so expect the celebrations to be especially big with a great line up of talent both with home grown Danish acts and some exciting International players too. With humble origins as a street party with live music performances, concerts, shows, and a host of neighbourhood party goers, the festival has now grown to be one of the highlights of the festival calendar.
This year's Distortion line up
The International and Danish talented line up includes Eats Everything, Solomun, Dennis, Oliver Huntemann, Shifted, Acid Arab, US giants Ghostface Killah, performing at Distortion Club Thursday 21st May, Smooky MarGielaa and Princess Nokia 1st June at Distortion Ø. There are so many live acts you really need to check out where and when and get your tickets sorted pronto!! Check out the line up and tickets here
Heavily electronic in the selection of acts, there are also plenty of non electro performers and even family friendly events taking place, look for the key info on the programmes to check out what's your scene.

Depending on when you're coming to Distortion, the venues and location are different. This is a 'moveable feast' and the party is going to be found in different locations depending on which day of the festival you attend. The chaos begins in Nørrebro on the Wednesday then goes to Vesterbro for Thursday, then Distortion Ø Party at the weekend. Sunday is 'Hygge' - so expect to get some good vibes and a chilled out crowd for this cosy festival send off. This could be the best day to get some free festival hugs!!
Kicking off in Nørrebro first, the first day of the festival sees some serious street party action in this hip neighbourhood. Once the home of some underground vibes, Nørrebro has now become packed with fancy restaurants, trendy coffee bars and creative boutiques, but it still likes to get down and party when it comes to loud music and a great crowd. From here it moves to party loving Vesterbro and then hits the club scene for the weekend.
The Distortion Ø Party is always a big one so make sure you're primed to make the most of the awesome musical acts performing and to get your groove on. Make sure you don't miss out on Distortion and get your tickets in advance. Check out the link here
