Copenhageners party

This is one way how Copenhageners party in the summertime. Friends meeting friends and talk while others dance, make drawings, chill or perform together some societal games.

The Blassics

The Blassics play original funk with afrobeat elements. The band coming from Hämeenlinna in Finland perform probably the grooviest Ethiopian jazz-inspired music I've ever heard in my life. At this occasion, the seven-piece live band was part of a Funky Amigo event at the urban food district Teurastamo in Helsinki.

Classic Danish interiors

One of the very successful concepts by Helsinki Design Week is the Design Diplomacy discussion series. Helsinki-based ambassadors residences open their doors to the public and registered participants gain the unique opportunity to explore the interior and architecture of the apartments. In addition, the events invite to a ludic Q&A card game session with a designer from each country meeting a corresponding Finnish design professional. This image is taken in the Danish residence in one of the many cosy meeting rooms fitted with classic Danish interiors.

In the nineties, he was one of the pioneers using the CD player as an instrument and has appeared in bands projects such as The Rasmus, RinneRadio, Linda Lampenius, Cool Sheiks, Lenni-Kalle Taipale, Giant Robot and much more.

Prelude

What makes this silent opera so immersive and engaging is that throughout the show the actors move and act alongside the audience while they can hear and experience every detail straight through headphones.

Folkevandring

It's quite a migration of festivalgoers walking between the camping sites and music festival area. You can easily walk a couple of kilometres in the heat of the summer.

Beer can house

The Dream City at the Roskilde Festival is a makers place. Any any idea is possible if it can be built. For example, the beer can house was a unique installation in 2013.

The Geodesic Dome

Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen, are a recognised architects duo behind numerous geodesic dome projects in Denmark and elsewhere. The one in for Roskilde Festival is built up in 2012 with separate modules made out of plywood. Now, this is it how it looked a year after usage as party temple in the Dream City at the music festival.
