Fancy attending a free electronic music festival hosted in a lush garden setting? Stella Polaris is the ultimate chill out event and it’s coming to Copenhagen. The festival will take place in five different cities, the last stop being Frederiksberg Garden – and what a beautiful stop it is, too. There’s no better way to spend a summer’s day in Copenhagen this weekend than sitting on the grass with friends listening to great music.
Several acts have been announced to play in the five cities and it’s sure to be a great line-up as names include Groove Armada, who you may know from their 1999 single “I See You Baby”, and former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy. Danish acts include DJ duo Den Sorte Skole, R’n'B singer Kill J and electronic dubstep act Sekuoia. Hannah Schneider, Lydmor, CHLLNGR and Mads Björn will also be making an appearance.
Bring some sandwiches or grab some food and drink from the stalls and bars at the venue, lie down on your picnic blanket, close your eyes and let the music and chilled out vibes take you away.
If you want to get out of the sun for a while, there’s a few good restaurants nearby, such as Krogers Familiehave. This restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, and it serves traditional Danish food – try one of their smørrebrød sharing platters.
To get to the festival from Generator Hostel Copenhagen, it’s a 25 minute metro journey on the M1 or M2 from Kongens Nytorv St., or you can take the number 26 bus from Dronningens Tvaegarde to Frederiksberg Runddel and get there in just over half an hour.
