NorthSide Festival, a city festival which first started in 2010, takes place this year on 13th-15th June in Ådalen in Aarhus, Denmark.
The strong line up includes the likes of Arcade Fire, A$AP Rocky, Queens of the Stone Age, Lana Del Rey, The National, MØ, Royal Blood, Rhye, Rudimental, White Lies and Wild Beasts. NorthSide’s organizers state on its website that the festival aspires to being “Denmark’s most innovative and sustainable music festival.” An example of this is they trade beer for cigarette butts, since they take 5 years to fully decompose – sounds like a fair enough deal to me!
Day tickets are sold out, but weekend tickets can still be purchased from here. Sound like your sort of festival or want more information? Check out this useful article entitled ’10 things to deal with at NorthSide’, which is also relevant to most festivals this summer! There is also an official app that can be downloaded on iPhones and Android.
