Hey folks, we’re in the middle of July and summer break is on its way. So is there anything better than enjoying the summer with some sweet Scandinavian festivals while dancing in the sun, with a beer in your hand, and of course good music? No?… Exactly! We want to give you a short list of Scandinavian festivals which you shouldn’t miss this summer and might have not crossed your g-map until now.
H2Ö Festival 24. – 25. July
Let’s begin our little journey through Scandinavia with Finland. The H2Ö festival, which was successfully introduced last summer, will take place on July 24th – 25th. On top of the diverse music, which includes hard-core representatives of Finnish alternative music and international underground gems, the old carpentry shop area will be coloured with a vast multi-artistic-programme: performances, installations, workshops and street art.
Stella Polaris Festival 24. July – 02. August
If you’re wandering around Denmark next week, check out the Stella Polaris Festival which is held annually in the gardens of Denmark’s biggest cities: Sønderborg (24th July), Aarhus (25th July), Kolding (31st July) and Frederiksberg (2nd August). The crowd is a great mix of electronic feinschmeckers, happy families with playing children, intoxicating after parties, smooching couples sharing kisses, cool white wine and the odd surprised group who just happened to walk by and decided to stay. And the best thing about Stellar Polaris: it’s for free!
