Haven Festival is a two day festival that is curated by Bryce Dessner, Aaron Dessner, Claus Meyer and Mikkel Borg Bjergso. The festival is fairly new event that is held in Copenhagen, Denmark, as its inauguration year was last year. According to Outpost, a spokesman of the festival, Sigurd Hartkorn Plaetner stated “We used the first year to get to know ourselves, the site and our guests, and it was our clear impression that the visitors went along with the kinky, strange and challenging festival. Now that we know the setting, we wish to take the artistic experiments, constellations and collaboration one step further in order to challenge ourselves and our guests.”
The festival has released twelve artists. These artists are Arcade Fire, Moses Sumney, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Brockhampton, Kevin Morby, Ariel Pink, Big Thief, Thastrom, Kamasi Washington, Cancer, Einsturzende Neubauten, The Royal Danish Orchestra.
The festival plans to bring different genres of art and music together with food and drinks. There will be different chefs and breweries that will be a part of the festival. Currently, there isn’t much detail about transportation or hotels. Tickets can be accessed through the festival’s website.
