In just over two months, one of Denmark’s most exciting festivals will return for its 21st edition. Distortion is a five-day club music festival that takes place across Copenhagen, where the best Danish names in club music mix with leading dance, R&B, pop, and electronic artists from all over the world.

Distortion runs May 29 through June 2 across Copenhagen. Its recently-announced lineup features Danish artists such as Bette, Josephin Bovién, and FLEXLIKEKEV and American dance and hip-hop artists including Channel Tres and Rico Nasty (both of whom will make their Danish live debuts at Distortion).
Distortion opens with the street parties Nørrebro and Vesterbro (May 29 and 30, respectively), which are named after their neighborhoods. During these parties, countless small stages line the streets, so a simple stroll along the road might just lead you to your new favorite artist. At night, these stages shut down so that you can head to Distortion Club (May 29-31), which takes place in venues and pop-up settings. But none of these events will prepare you for the blissful madness of the weekend, when Distortion Ø (May 31-June 1) transforms a hilly, grass- and tree-lined field along the harbor into an open-air setting for dance music and DJ sets that go all night, from sundown all the way until sunrise.
