Kødbyen, the old meatpacking district and one of the coolest area of Copenhagen right now hosts an annual 2 day music festival. 7 stages in old warehouses and under the open – hopefully – clear blue sky hosts a broad mix of danish upcoming bands and provides a great basis for exploring new music.
At Vesterbro Festival, everything from rock’n'roll, hip-hop, electro, dubstep to indie singer/songerwriter can be found in the lineups of the 80 bands playing this event.
The event has been growing and growing since its inception in 2003 and actually started out as a protest by the artists themselves to bring focus to the lack of practice facilities for young musicians. Since then, it has grown into one of my favorite urban events in Copenhagen.
Vesterbro Festival is full of the great “Copenhagen in summer”-atmosphere. People are happy, drinking a few beers in the sun, listening to good music; basically everything you can wish! It’s all I need and this is one of my favorite Copenhagen Events.
