distortionpostCopenhagen knows how to party. Period. And so it is no big surprise, that DISTORTION 2014 was a huge blast! The annual party series that took place from 4. – 8. June this year, regularly turns the Danish capital’s streets into one big dancefloor, concert venue, rave party, hangout, playground, love nest and so much more at the same time.

With insanely many different events and concerts happening at numerous stages and places, we were lucky enough to still catch some Danish gems among the line-up: while fresh acts like Scarlet Pleasure, Broke, Kill J or Mont Oliver sweetened the day parties in Copenhagen’s hippest neighborhoods Nørrebro and Vesterbro, Tako Lako and Bottled in England teared down the stage in front of an excited, happily sweating audience during Distortion’s harbour party on the former industrial site Refshaleøen.

The same raw, edgy, industrial setting around an abandoned shipyard, was also location for the party week’s big bang – the Final Party. And what a party! A party that not only served amazing live shows by two of the headlining Danish acts – Lust for Youth and When Saints Go Machine – but that finally also showed off with an incredibly beautiful sunrise after hours spent with great music and great company…

See you next year, DISTORTION!

Instead of photographs, blurred by inevitable dancing and festival beer, we decided to put together a – just as blurry – video with some moving impressions from Distortion 2014:

The used song is “Queen Acid” by the always great Bottled in England – make sure to check out the single here on the blog and go buy it over at iTunes or stream it via Spotify.
