One of Europe’s large annual celebrations with 100.000+ guests – with over 15.000 international visitors traveling to Copenhagen for the event. Among locals, 82% of the population aged 18-30 claims to have participated in the festival, which it rates as Copenhagen’s most important cultural event of the year.

The free street parties of Nørrebro & Vesterbro and the free Harbour party gather 20.000-80.000 people per day, of all ages.
The Distortion X events – also known as the “big street parties” or “music zones” – are the largest HipHop & EDM festival in Denmark, with over 18.000 tickets sold.
