Talk to action! Do not miss these talks
Our head of Art & Activism is here to help you spot some of the important talks you must not miss out on
PUBLISHED MONDAY 26.6.2023
The rain is expected to arrive around 14:00, according to the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), so make sure you and your camp have taken precautions. For that reason, our recommendations for today's best experiences start in a slightly different place: with a dose of weatherproof advice.
Regardless of what the weather brings exactly, secure the tarpaulin in your camp, give your tent pegs an extra firm knock, and remember to help others around you. If there's anything else we need to tell you, we'll send you a push notification in our app, and you can also stay updated on social media.
Late in the afternoon, it's expected to clear up, so here are a few early and late recommendations for your Monday. At the end of our recomendations, we've gathered a playlist will the music playing today!
You can hardly have missed the gigantic MeWe construction towering over East. At 11:30., the artist behind MeWe, Claudia Comte, invites you to a fast-paced and competitive chainsaw performance at the same location. You might be wondering what a chainsaw performance is. Do you really want not to find out?! The Swiss artist has invited not one, but two teams of lumberjacks. It's gonna go something like this: RRRRRrrrrrRRRRRrrrrrRRRRR!
