Trailers, street art & music – Trailerpark Festival 2011 (July 28-31)
When evening breaks Copenhagen offers even more action. A truly unique art and music festival called the Trailerpark Festival is presenting four days of the best of both Danish and international street artists and electronic, indie, folk and rock music. The line-up for the fifth Trailerpark Festival consists of no less than 62 music acts and over 40 artists.
ArtRebels is the company behind the festival, a group of artists, designers and web coders committed to give room for the radical expressions in the many subcultures from the Danish underground.
Beach City & Best Cooking
In a water front city such as Copenhagen, no one needs to stay sweaty after the BMX rolling and the Trailerpark rocking: Copenhagen offers plenty of possibilities to have a swim by the habour beaches in the heart of the city. And you can take a bike or the metro to get to the nearby Amager sea beach with place and space for relaxing with a book, surfing, paddling and playing.
In the second half of August Copenhagen Cooking will be taking place in the restaurants and streets of the city. Copenhagen has the exclusive noma – the best restaurant in the world – but during the Cooking festival star quality chefs take their food art down to the streets in the hip Meat packing District in order to give everybody a taste of the good life.
