Party in a Post: Haven Festival 2018

Nestled in between old shipyards and new beer bars on Refshaleøen, Haven Festival is gearing up to serve up a weekend of music, food, beer, and art. Just across the water from the Copenhagen city center, this old industrial island turned trendy waterfront is playing host to the harborside festival on 10 – 11 August.

Orchestral powerhouse Arcade Fire, electro legends Kraftwerk, and favored Danish sonic duo Den Sorte Skole set the scene as headliners for the two-day festival. Other notable acts include Serpentwithfeet, Dirty Projectors, Katinka, Nils Frahm, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, KÁRYYN, and Brockhampton as more than thirty musical acts take the stage over two days.

With Mikkeller’s Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Nordic food giant Claus Meyer at the helm of the festival, tasty Nordic food and craft beers are guaranteed. When you’re not watching the music, you’ll be lounging out with good eats, delicious drinks and experiential art displays.
