Copenhagen's biggest street party and club festival Distortion takes place every year in June and attracts nearly 100.000 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, pop-up 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.

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 latest new addition - the harbour party

In 2013, Distortion introduced a free harbour party and bid a temporary farewell to the usual street party in the city centre of Copenhagen.

The harbour party is held in collaboration with some of the street hosts from the previous inner city celebrations on Studiestræde, one of Copenhagen's central streets.
