Music Festivals in Denmark


There are plenty music festivals in Denmark and they cater to all music tastes. From the very large to the smaller intimate family type affairs.

Denmark loves their music festivals and there is one in nearly every part of the country during the 3 months of summer. Does not matter if you like rock, folk or jazz, Denmark has a music festival to suit your taste. Most of the festivals are 2-3 days and are family events where you can camp and "hygge" with 1000s of other Danes enjoying the summer weather.

Many of the festivals are located near beaches, so it is easy to cool off in the surf. There is lots of camping, except in the the festivals in Copenhagen, where you will need hotel accomodations, so plan early.

It is rare that you are allowed to bring your own drink and food, so read up carefully on the rules before heading out. Also get your tickets early since most of the festivals do sell out and usually pretty quickly.

People have their favorites and often buy tickets for next year as soon as they go on sale.

Below is a list of the largest and most popular music festivals in Denmark each year. This does not mean that there are not other music festivals, there are many smaller and local events throughout the year, but these are some of the best or most popular.

Enjoy your summer.
