I am back from four days at Roskilde Festival, with some fantastic people, music, moments and atmosphere. And after sleeping two days, also back at the desk.
The Jazz festival is rolling with full steam. It is easy to find the good cheap concerts. You just click at free concerts and the date, and you can find them. At Balders Plads in Outer Nørrebro they have a very good program, with a lot of local musicians.
Also at Kongens Have in Central Copenhagen have free concerts with good bands. For late night you can head to Christiania Jazzklub at Børneteatret. It isn´t free but its cheap and with a little smoke in your lungs you can find really nice concerts.
Not everything is jazz. CC – short for Copenhagen Contemporary – has opened in new rooms at Refshaleøen. It is 7000 m2 big and the opening show is the Superflex Group doing there London Tate show from last year. I haven´t check it yet, but that will come soon.
On friday 13th Rust makes a street party outside of there venue in Guldbergsgade. They Cooperate with the independant Hip Hop Label Affiliated, so you can drop by and listen to some of the sweetest Hip Hop That Copenhagen can produce right now. Starts at 4 pm and officially ends at 10, but no surprice if the party continues into the long summer night.
You can cotinue straigtht to another Street party in Nørrebro, with Bas Under Buen. Reggae, dancehall, dubstep, UK garage, dub, steppas, drum & bass, UK bass, trap. Everything with a heavy bas. Thats Saturday July 14th, with by the way is my birthday.
If you are tired of all the sun and positiveness and are feeling more dark and glommy go to Underwerket at Saturday 14 th. Legendary hardcore punk band MDC – Millions of Dead Cops – are playing with German Scheisse Minelli. It is a very small room, so remember your ear Plugs. But very cheap beer.
At Ungdomshuset you can also find cheap beer end Hardcore punk with Swedish band Lonely Grave.
Move your body!!!
The Move festival is all about moving your body. There is dancing, yoga, slackline, parkour, lectures and much more. The Festival takes place at Refshaleøen, and I think that you are free to join all the classes. Next year i might do some Tai Chi or Chi kung classes. 😉
