Dates and Venue

Mark your calendars for the last weekend of May, running from the 29th until the 1st of June 2024. The festival’s weekend finale, Distortion Ø, unfolds in the scenic area of Refshaleøen. This once-industrial zone turned cultural hotspot is the perfect backdrop for the festival, with its raw urban charm and waterfront views.

The action kicks off at 18:00 each day, stretching into the early hours of the morning, with Friday wrapping up at 04:00 and Saturday pushing further to 06:00.

Lineup and Stages

This year, Distortion Ø has outdone itself with 38 artists across 4 stages. On Friday, catch the likes of DJ Heartstring, Mall Grab, Sven Väth, and I Hate Models as they set the tone for what's to come. Saturday continues the thrill with performances from Stephan Bodzin and Avalon Emerson, among others.

The full lineup ensures a rich mix of genres and styles, promising something for every musical palate. The festival's tradition of dancing till sunrise in the forest remains a highlight, creating a magical escape within the city. And on Sunday, get ready to create new memories and sightsee the beautiful Copenhagen.

Tickets

Secure your spot by grabbing a ticket early. Options include a weekend pass for the entire finale at 1000 DKK, or choose a day ticket for 600 DKK. Remember, the festival often sells out due to its popularity and limited space in the enchanting forest setting.

Atmosphere and Music

Distortion Ø is more than just music; it's an experience. The event is a celebration of Copenhagen's unique spirit, with an atmosphere that is both electric and welcoming. The music ranges from underground techno and house to international acts, with past performances from artists such as Hate Models.

The crowd truly loves their music and their city. Between sets, roam the festival grounds adorned with intriguing light installations and spontaneous performances that capture the festival's experimental roots. It’s a place to let loose, meet new friends, and enjoy the creative spirit of Copenhagen.

Food and Beverages

You won't go hungry at Distortion Ø. The cuisine is a delightful fusion of traditional Danish fare and international street food, offering something for every palate. The festival features a variety of food stalls showcasing everything from local Danish delights to international dishes.

Vegan or carnivore, there's something for everyone. And of course, there are plenty of bars scattered throughout the venue to keep you hydrated—or a bit tipsy—as you dance the night away.

Dress Code

The dress code at Distortion Ø is all about personal expression. Expect a colorful mix of festival gear, costumes, and casual wear. Whether it's your boldest, most Bohemian outfit or simply comfortable dancing gear, make sure it’s something you can move freely in.

The festival goes on rain or shine, so a waterproof jacket might be your best accessory.

Activities Beyond the Fiesta

In addition to the main event, Distortion Ø offers a bunch of other activities. Explore the city's rich history, visit the pop-up art installations, or take part in one of the many workshops. And remember, Copenhagen is a city best explored on foot or by bike, so make sure to take some time to wander its charming streets.
