Distortion festival is a celebration of street-life freedom, uniting street and nightlife on the urban streets of Copenhagen. Orchestrating more than 150 dance floors hosted by more than 150 international as well as local icons of clubs, galleries, labels, magazines and of course street/nightlife people; this event is now one of the largest street events in Europe with approximately 90,000 people per day. First time, and loved it!
We attended two out of the five days because we had to rest it up for a day in preparation for our Egypt trip… you know, avoiding the lingering hangover. The first day, I was up for more than 30 hours from traveling but the second was after hitting it hard at the gym. You can check out my last workout before my vacation in the post before this. I did a Military Circuit for the first time because of the lack of time, but hell, it was saucy sweatness.
Wait wait, back to the fun bit… pics from Distortion Festival, then I’ll share my very painful MOSH Pit experience.
Cute cigarette van & men peeing in orange cubicles. 5 rules for peeing in public: Be a man, stand tall, have a penis, aim right and don’t swing around if someone calls your name. Jealous.
This is the border of the mosh pit or the “wall of death” where I unknowingly walked into. Unprepared and standing right smack in the pit( led by S) I was knocked head to the ground before I could even think about what was going on. In case you don’t know (well, I didn’t), Moshing is a style of dance, typically done in the center of a crowd, usually with aggressive music genres primarily live music where when the beats start banging, the people or you would say participants push, pound and slam into each other. Sounds dangerous but this “controlled violence” is seen as a form of expression of enjoyment; the ultimate way to show your love for the music yeah-huh. A lot more fun when you know what to expect
More booze? 2 people; 2 bottles of wine +whiskey, oh yea!
View from B’s apartment. Our stash of poison.
Very pleased with my jagermeister shots
When a girl pees in public, timing is everything! Oh come on, like you’ve never been drunk and decided it was alright to pee in a patio filled with people haha. Well, I admit I have pee-ed in public, but not this drunk and definitely not this public.
