Time for Festival Frenzy

Time for Festival Frenzy
If we know one thing about Scandinavians is that they love their festivals, more specifically music festivals. The summer season is jam-packed with all sorts of different festivals, offering incredible music in all genres, fabulous art, the best food and a whole lot of fun. With so many options for festival madness, it's hard to know which are most worthy of a visit. So we've drawn up a shortlist of the coolest music festivals in Scandinavia, la creme de la creme. Hope you're up for some fun times? We are already dancing and preparing our flower crowns! 9d438a4567b6685e6a4cfb2cdccfac6c photo by Bo Lennert (cropped from original)/courtesy of Nordic Man Magazine.
When talking about Scandinavian festivals, you can’t get around Roskilde Festival - the colossal festival is notorious in the best possible way. Aside from a phenomenal lineup, that always counts both newcomers and superstars, at Roskilde, it’s all about sharing and taking care of each other. For eight days people spread love, beer and games in the huge camping areas and the festival ground. Also, part of the ethos of the festival is to be as environmentally and ethically friendly as possible, so they include recycling stations throughout the festival, and donate profits to charity. Roskilde Festival (Denmark), June 30 to July 7.

Named the coolest festival in the Nordic countries by Vogue U.S., Flow Festival in Helsinki, Finland, is the place for old-school legends and newcomers to gather and mark the summer beat. From jazz to pop, to electronic, this festival has a bit of everything, including great food and art spaces - and a fantastic location. Flow takes place in a disused power station close to the city centre with large outdoor and tent stages as part of the venue. Flow Festival (Finland), August 10 to August 12.

How does partying inside a glacier sound like? Amazing right? That is exactly what Reykjavik’s Secret Solstice offers. And aside from that plus it's banging lineup the festival is totally unique as it offers 72 hours of never-ending daylight, or 72 hours of never-ending partying - due to the geographical location of Iceland, the sun literally doesn’t set during the whole weekend. Secret Solstice (Iceland), June 21 to June 24.

Sweden, best known as the birthplace of ABBA or Zlatan Ibrahimovic, couldn’t be left out in a list of the coolest music festivals in Scandinavia. And Way out West in Gothenburg is the crown jewel of musical parties in this Nordic country. A Way out West, the food is organic, and the music is loud, with Kendrick Lamar and Iggy Pop as part of the headliners. Taking place at the Slottsskogen Park, Gothenburg’s main park, the landscape couldn’t be greener, which creates excellent balance to the perfectly orchestrated chaos that is this musical party.
