If one must put some words on Distortion, then inclusion is one of the most important. For Distortion, there is no one who is not allowed to join. All types of festival guests are welcome, and all kinds of party organizers can hold their own street party. It is an essential part of the festival and one of its great strengths. The more we are, and the more diverse we are, the better.
Distortion, which is a tumultuous festival experience, can only work because we all take care of each other, show consideration, accommodate each other's diversity and act as a community. Thus, Distortion achieves a balanced chaos that is not destructive, but creates a feeling in all of us that we are part of something bigger, for which we simultaneously share responsibility. This feeling only becomes more important as the festival grows. This is something we have continuously tried to strengthen, for example via Gadearmbånd, where guests on their own initiative choose to support clean-up and cleaning.
We are grateful for the responsible sense of community that arises, and we know how important it is for the festival's existence. Therefore, a thank you to participants and party organizers who every year create our everyone's festival.
Distortion is apolitical and free of political interests. We do not fight for or against certain political beliefs. We do the opposite. We try to break down boundaries and remove barriers in the cityscape as well as between people. We pay tribute to humanity and the special Danish freedom.

Clapton is accompanied by an excellent live band, including his many years of collaboration.

REFSHALEØEN 15.-18. JUNI
THE WILDEST PARTY IN THE NORTH! COPENHELL is Denmark's largest rock and metal festival, which since its inception in 2010 has gathered thousands of rock and metal fans from both home and abroad in Copenhagen every year. Refshaleøen forms the setting for the four-day hell on earth, and the raw, industrial surroundings stand as the perfect backdrop for the brutal decibel bombing from COPENHELL's scenes.
COPENHELL's purpose has always been - and continues to be - to create a festival that every year presents an interesting quality program to the public, where both new and headbangers to immortal classics can be discovered. In addition, every year great efforts are made to give the audience a completely unique total experience from the second they walk through the gates of hell. The parties in the beer tent Biergarten are now legendary, and on the festival site COPENHELL abounds with entertainment, evil art, devilish hangouts, hard rock, and heavy metal - a wild free space where you can forget about everyday life and indulge in the atmosphere and music.
After a full decade on the field, COPENHELL has become a tradition for many metal fans - even outside the country's borders, where the rumor of thunder from the north spreads like a virus. In the long run, COPENHELL will be one of Northern Europe's leading metal festivals, and therefore COPENHELL is also made exclusively by rock and metal fans - for rock and metal fans!
