Distortion Copenhagen 2016 – Nørrebro / Wednesday

We were at Distortion in Copenhagen last Wednesday. It’s basically a huge street party, bundled with lots of small concerts, the consumption of beer and other (mostly soft) drugs and a LOT of people.

The party moved over the week through different parts of the city and ended at a festival with an entrance fee. Most of the people in the street were friendly, happy and partying too, but it wasn’t quite the same feeling as at a real festival. People were a little more suspicious and selfish.

In general it was a nice experience, also because people were posing for us or just didn’t really mind people with cameras being around.

Judith got a bunch of really really cool close up photos, so check them out on her blog too.

The weather was great, lots of small stalls were selling water bottles to make it a little easier for people to not dehydrate 😉distortion-copenhagen-noerrebro-18 distortion-copenhagen-noerrebro-19

Only the trash that couldn’t be returned for cash, like bottles and cans, was left behind.
