Festivals & Venue

NusNus is the secretariat of Distortion (celebration), Karrusel (festival) and Hangaren (venue).


Street Life & New Dance Music – since 1998 – all over Copenhagen.

One of Europe’s large annual celebrations with 100.000+ guests – with 10-15.000 international visitors traveling to Copenhagen for the event. Among locals, 71% of the population aged 18-30 has participated in the festival, which is rated as the “most iconic” cultural event for the city of Copenhagen. Distortion is also the most beloved event of the year with 24% of the entire Copenhagen population claiming it has “special personal meaning”. *

The free street parties of Nørrebro & Vesterbro and the free Harbour party gather 20.000-80.000 people per day, of all ages. The strongest human values the public associates with the street events are “everybody is welcome” (65%), “gives the city a soul” (63%) and “free spirit” (54%).*

The Distortion X events – also known as “the big street parties” or “music zones” – are the largest HipHop & EDM festival in Denmark – also the only event of its kind in the streets and Copenhagen squares – with ca. 15.000 single tickets sold.

The Distortion Ø festival – the very core of the Distortion week, on Friday & Saturday – is by far the largest electronic music event in Scandinavia with 12.000+ guests per day. Distortion Ø is a world-class international rave: only 34% of the Ø guests are Danish.
