Copenhagen's biggest street party and club festival Distortion takes place every year in June and attracts nearly 300.000 people to its street parties, dance, art rock, freestyle hip hop, tech-house, polka and street art.

When Distortion hits Copenhagen, it will be with street parties, night parties, Final Party, chill-out events and a harbour party on the programme.

Everything stems from Distortion's core - an exploration of partying as an event and concept.

Where to party

Distortion takes place in different parts of Copenhagen. This year, you can look forward to partying in the following areas:

4 June - Streets of Nørrebro
5 June - Streets of Vesterbro
6 June - The Harbour
7 June - Final party at Refshaleøen
8. juni - 'Hygge'

The final party is at Refshaleøen, which has been turned into a big festival area with more than 11 stages and a great international line-up. The final party will be the biggest event at Distortion.

Free parties

It is usually free to participate in the daytime and evening parties during Distortion. It is possible to maintain these thanks to the sale of street wristbands.

The street wristbands make it possible for the audience to voluntarily contribute to the future existence of free street parties. By purchasing a wristband, you are thus showcasing your support of Distortion.

The Distortion wristband costs DKK 100. 

Distortion Club

Distortion Club is a partnership between Culture Box, Pumpehuset, Jazzhouse, Rust and Distortion.

Distortion Club is behind a series of festive night during Distortion. Read more about Distortion Club and the events
