Dolce&Gabbana Spy lands in Copenhagen to live the city to the maximum and discover the super cool people that populate it. What better opportunity than that eclectic Danish event, Distortion Festival? With the help of brave local bloggers the anonymous spy documented the whole thing for you.
Closing your eyes against the cold wind and letting the music roll over you. Getting so carried away by that sound that you feel completely alone in the crowd. Opening your eyes to see endless hands flung towards the sunset with a roar.This is the most vivid image, the one that comes to mind when I reflect on these days spent in Copenhagen, mixed with getting lost in the unfamiliar streets of a fascinating city and dancing to shifting notes against an ever changing skyline.
The house I was staying in smelled of fresh orchids, and its milk white colour kept it bright even when the heavy rain clouds obscured the sun that remains high until 10 pm and then returns again just a few hours later.
Distortion Festival was the soundtrack to the long weekend, probably the best way to visit a city as it moves you around it, taking in a new area each day and adapting to its streets. The music would jump from techno to deep-house to dance hall and then surprise you with a concert from some indie band just around the corner. Every action was performed to a musical background, and even when there was no sound, something catchy that had mesmerised me the night before was always going round my head.
Distortion was also a spicy lunch with Thomas Fleurquin, the creator of the festival, making friends with Soren Jepsen the street photographer and blogger for www.thelocals.dk, and stumbling into unlikely events.
Certainly unforgettable in every way.
