a taste of haven

Today we add another two acts to the line-up for HAVEN 2018 and - we would also like you to come celebrate spring with us with a special DJ-set from Den Sorte Skole, tasting of a beer brewed on site at HAVEN 2017 and a little taste of some of the food you can get at HAVEN 2018.


We are very proud to announce that we have added German multi-instrumentalist and virtuoso Nils Frahm and American indie-rock singer Jenny Lewis to the HAVEN line up.

A DJ-set by one of our favourite Danish live-acts, beer brewed at HAVEN 2017, a little tasting of some of the enticing food you can get at HAVEN 2018 and even a little exercise, is what you can expect from this full day of experiences brought to you by the HAVEN partners Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, Claus Meyer, Bryce Dessner and Aaron Dessner.

With over 110 different beers and visits from a variety of international top brewers, HAVEN is not your common festival when it comes to beer. Apart from the expertly curated beer line-up, Mikkel Borg-Bjergsø set up a number of live-brewing sessions. One of those beers are finally ready. A Madeira port wine barrel aged stout! We want to celebrate with a beer run, Pig & Chick hotdogs from Meyers and a special DJ-set from our friends in Den Sorte Skole. The event is free and it happens at the Mikkeller Brewery and bar called ‘Baghaven’.

HAVEN is a festival of taste and experiences, and this year is no exception.

When the HAVEN festival takes place over the course of two days in August, it’s more of a culmination, a final party, than an isolated event. HAVEN is not your typical festival; it strives to be a present and palpable force all year round by curating a number of events in collaboration with several other cultural players in Copenhagen.

HAVEN is arranged and curated by:
Claus Meyer, Mikkel Borg-Bjergsø and Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner
10 & 11 August 2018 at Refshaleøen, Copenhagen
Lineup is subject to possible changes.
