Roskilde Festival has donated 800,000 DKK to Bloom Festival. The Copenhagen festival takes place on 25-26 May.

Bloom is a festival focusing on nature, art and science with scientists, philosophers, artists and thinkers, dedicated to sharing knowledge and thoughts about everything from microbes to the dark matter of the universe – and everything in between.

The festival offers talks, debates, concerts, food and art. Entrance is free.

The programme offers artists such as Superflex and Lea Porsager, writers such as Jeff VanderMeer and a music programme with artists such as Lowly and Selma Judith (both playing Roskilde Festival 2019).

Bloom and Roskilde Festival

Roskilde Festival is part of the production of Bloom Festival. But Bloom is actually also part of this year's Roskilde Festival: On our Flokkr stage, Bloom present sleep biologist Birgitte Kornum for a talk on the need of sleep – also in relation to unusual scenarios such as Roskilde Festival.

There will be a tiredness test during her talk and a data experiment based on festival-goers and their (lack of) sleep with the help of smart watches.

Birgitte Kornum is also part of the programme at Bloom Festival 2019.

  • When: 25-26 May 2019
