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.
