Select Shopping | Gear up for the festival season

Just because spring isn’t here doesn’t mean to say the summer festivals aren’t just around the corner. And what better way to spend these endlessly rainy days than searching for festival gadgets? This guide provides you with everything you need to be ready for the summer festivals, whether you are going to Roskilde or Far Out West.

Trendsales is a fairly new online second-hand store. With its hundreds of gadgets, all divided into various categories, you can find some amazing second-hand stuff. Hence, if one is searching for festival boots, or a large sweater for when the rain comes, this is the place to go. Because let’s all be honest, it’s not a proper festival without mud and rainy days. Trendsales does not have a physical store, so the only way to reach their golden pages is online. Nevertheless, this means they are available 24-7, which also mean you can make a purchase at three in the morning if you want to.


If you don’t like the idea of second-hand goods, but still want quality camping equipment at fairly affordable prices, Friluftsland is the place to go. The staff are always welcoming and equally willing to help you to get the right gear. Friluftsland has various locations in the city; however, the one on Nørrefarigmagsgade has the best variety. With its many different tents, sleeping bags, and weatherproof festival boots, this store is the ultimate mecca for true festival fans. There are no limits to the gadgets you can get in Friluftsland – only the imagination sets the boundaries.

Stereo Studio
Everyone knows that before any festival, you need to refresh the music that is coming into town. While downloading is out, and Spotify is for students with no cash, true festival lovers go to the music store to buy their favourite records. And this city’s best music store is the one on Nørrebrogade. Stereo Studio has everything from soul, to jazz, to pop and hip-hop. So whether you’re into ‘good old’ 80s music, or newer stuff like Mumford & Sons or Lukas Graham, this is the store to go to. Not only do they have almost every genre you can think of, but they are also very helpful – sometimes to the point that you can’t leave the store until the absolute right record has been found. Furthermore, true music fans can get free copies of the music magazine GAFFA – going into this music universe is a guaranteed special treat for any music fan.
