Kris Kristoffersen meets kalvesteg, Passenger picks up some pariserbøf and Flogging Molly takes on flæskesteg. Confused? Welcome to the inaugural staging of the KOMOS Festival in the King’s Garden. Bringing together folk and food, this festival is sure to bring a new energy to Copenhagen.

Over two days of evocative folk music and the tasting of some of Copenhagen’s best street food, visitors will be embodying the festival theme ‘Folk and Food in the garden’.

The festival aims to shine a light on a genre that doesn’t always get the credit it deserves. Bringing together both the traditional and new aspects of the folk genre, artists such as Lisa Ekdahl, Seafret, Smooth Hound Smith and Jacob Dinesen and many more will be performing. The festival will present a total of 18 international and Danish artists from the two scenes.

KOMOS wants to gather several generations through music and dining experiences, which is shown through the music program’s diversely aged performers.

Children are more than welcome at KOMOS, and if they’re under the age of 6, it is free for them to enter if accompanied by a paying adult.

Given Copenhagen’s known interest in food and music, it seemed clear that the two should be combined into a festival. For only 665 kroner, you can experience both days of ‘Folk and Food in the garden’.

You won’t want to miss the first ever KOMOS Festival!
