Copenhagen Carnival

Enjoy the colorful, fun and festive annual Copenhagen Carnival that this year takes place in the center of Copenhagen at Saturday, the 18th of May!
The carnival has been built up around Latin and South American music, dance and parades. Over time this has developed into a cultural music festival for music from all over the world. This development has among other things meant that it has been opened up to other contemporary, urban genres and rhythms from Africa,Latin America, and the Caribbean, as well as European and Middle Eastern carnival traditions. Since 2008, the electronic carnival has been an integral part of the Pentecost Carnival. This has resulted in even more varied music options.
