A COLOSSAL WEEKEND 2024 taks place on May 16-18 and is the 8th edition of the festival which have been running annually since 2016 with 2020 as the only exception due to Covid 19.

We define ourself as a ‘genre crossing, boundary pushing, experimental festival within The Realm of ‘Heavy’.  Throughout the years we have hosted artists like Cult of Luna, Deafheaven, Alcest, Sumac, Emma Ruth Rundle, This Will Destroy You, Russian Circles, Built to Spill, Speaker Bite Me, Solbrud, Liturgy, Yob and many more.

A COLOSSAL WEEKED takes place at the Vesterbro area in Copenhagen, centered around VEGA, one of Europe’s leading venues in terms of sound, architecture and artistic vision. Other nearby venues are also part of the festival – mainly the enxt door neighbour to VEGA, the underground venue BASEMENT which adds a beautiful contrast with it’s raw and urban feel. Also the court yard of BASEMENT serves as natural hangout spot during the festival.



Tickets for the festival can be found here:


Adresses are:

VEGA: Enghavevej 40, 1674 Copenhagen V

We recommend using public transportation. The Copenhagen Metro is running 24-7 and the nearest stop is ‘ENGHAVE PLADS’ a short walk from VEGA & BASEMENT.

From the Central Station (Hovedbanegården) bus  23 runs towards Valby St. and stops at Enghave Plads near VEGA & BASEMENT.


Upon arrival, your ticket will be scanned at Lille VEGA, where you’ll receive your wristband. Your wristband grants access to all A Colossal Weekend concerts at VEGA and Basement on the day specified on your wristband – and of course, for all days if you have a full festival pass.

 Check-in is located at Enghavevej 40, 1674, Copenhagen V – Lille VEGA’s entrance.


Close to VEGA at the end of Rejsbygade, you’ll find a public car park with 77 parking spaces. The rules for parking are the same as on the side streets around VEGA, which belong to the blue parking zone, licence zone Enghaveparken.


VEGA’s and Basement’s bars offer a wide range of drinks with and without alcohol. In VEGA’s bars, there’s also a small selection of snacks, as well as the option to purchase earplugs. Unfortunately, there are no food stalls at the festival, but in VEGA’s vicinity, there’s a wide range of restaurants and takeaway places in all price ranges, especially the area around Enghave Plads (about 50 meters away) offers a wide range of good places with both vegetarian and vegan options. A quick bite between concerts can therefore be included in your planning.


Close to the venues you will find plenty of hotels and hostels. Also public transport around Copenhagen is very efficient so where ever you choose to stay you will have smooth access.
