Wundergrund Festival

This is the edgiest festival to grace the streets of Copenhagen. Since 2006, the Wundergrund Festival has worked with Danish and international artists to bring new experimental music and sound art to Copenhagen. Without the boundaries of labels, “anything can happen” at Wundergrund, challenging clichés and assumptions, artists and audiences alike. Attend a variety of shows and expand your musical palette with the likes of Anne Hilde Neset and her story of radiophony’s influence on electric music at Literaturhus, or perhaps see Bjørn Nørgaard – the mastermind behind the modern tapestries hanging in Christiansborg Palace – at Byens Lys. Maybe something a little more classical is your taste, so stop by DR Koncerthuset to see the legendary DR Girls’ Choir perform ‘Et Lys I Mørket’ in a completely darkened hall. The possibilities at this festival are wild and endless.
