DJ Koze, Axel Boman and Siriusmodeselektor have been billed for the sprawling Copenhagen event.
Distortion has been taking place since 1998. The overall event comprises now three parts—daytime street parties, a substantial club programme and a new two-night rave finale at Copenhagen harbour. The street party aspect is particularly well-known, with more than 40 arenas and 80,000 guests expected at the upcoming edition. The two-night rave, which is being held for the first time, replaces the closing party traditionally held in Copenhagen's city centre.
The names recently announced will all be playing at Distortion Ø, the weekend rave. They include live acts Laid Back, Siriusmodeselektor (Modeselektor and Siriusmo) and Omar Souleyman, while DJ Koze, Noir, Axel Boman and Cashmere Cat get on the decks. Expect more artists to be added in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, check out our review of Distortion 2013 for an idea of what to expect.
