This year the festival unfortunately has been cancelled. It was not possible to find a suitable venue. Stay tuned for 2017! If you have already made travel arrangements to Copenhagen and have nowhere to stay, please use Facebook to find someone to host you.
How to get there
You can get to Copenhagen in many ways.
By train: dsb.dk
How to get around
The easiest way to get around Copenhagen is by bike. We will try to get old bikes to fix up. During the festival we will have tourist maps of Copenhagen.
There are buses leaving close to the venue, but transport is quite expensive. It is also within walking distance of the city centre and the beautiful Copenhagen lakes.
There will be text as soon as we know more. Right now we are looking into wheelchair accessibility on the higher floors. Will be up soon.
We would like to be able to have translations at the festival, and we are working on a suitable solution. Watch this space!
The queer festival is non-profit. We wish to create a space which is not based on money, as we find this is the case in society today. The festival is open to all, whether or not they have money. So it doesn't cost anything to take part in the festival, meaning going to workshops, sleeping and food is by donation. We have been fundraising and making solidarity events for this to be possible. Still it is important to point out that running a big festival costs money, and therefore we ask people who have money to give bigger amounts of donations than the people who are not able to.
As we do not have our venue confirmed, we are unsure of sleeping arrangements. It may be possible to sleep at the venue, but if not, we will have Copenhagen queers with available sleeping places for out of town visitors, so no one will be without a place to stay.
There is common food for lunch and dinner. Food is by donation. All the food served at the festival is vegan. There is food three times a day, breakfast will be breads and spreads, rather than an organised meal. If you have allergies let us know on the allergy sign up sheet in the kitchen and we will make sure there is also food for you.
General Information about Denmark
Denmark has its own currency kroner as it is not part of the Euro European standard currency. Danish money can be bought at the Airport, or at Forex Shops around town, but it will probably be cheaper to buy them before entering the country. At present time 100 Danish kroner is worth 13.41 Euros and 18.36 US Dollars.
The weather in Copenhagen in July is changeable. It can be really hot but it can also rain and be chilly. Here is a link to the Danish weather forecast so you can come prepared: dmi.dk
Public transportation is very expensive in Copenhagen. Travelling from the airport to the city can cost you 36 DKR per person. And a ride itself never costs less than 24 DKR. Copenhagen is nice on bike. We hope to have a bike workshop at the queer festival so you can make your own.
