It is coming! Another massive celebration of nightlife is hitting the streets of Copenhagen already on the 29th of May. Started as a friends’ gathering and slowly developing as an underground event, today Distortion is the largest street festival in Scandinavia that annually invites to dive into the orchestrated and festive chaos. As always, streets parties taking place during midweek mark the beginning of the festival, and will follow-up with Distortion Club events as well as closing sessions on the industrial island Refshaleøen. All parties and stages will be hosted by different nightclubs, labels, producers, galleries, or even individuals, therefore, Distortion aims to create a unique unity of celebration and DIY vibe.
