Folkemødet will kick off tomorrow in heavy rain that will get heavier … and heavier … and heavier
Folkemødet (June 16-19) is often referred to as the Roskilde of politics, but it’s not normally known for its mudbaths.
But this weekend threatens to be a washout – and no, we’re not talking about the political kind.

Heavy rain is forecast for both the politics festival on Bornholm and also in east Zealand on Friday, with up to 40 mm expected on the island and 25 mm in the capital.

“In the capital, heavy precipitation may lead to up to 25 millimeters of rainfall on Friday.”
DMI has published a chart that shows the amount of rain expected to fall on northern Zealand and Copenhagen until Sunday is as much as 55 millimetres of rain..
