Frost Festival 2016 kicks off in just one week! We have already announced our full musical line-up, and this year’s unique venues. However, the last piece of the puzzle has been missing: our light art. We are pleased to announce our guest light artists today.
Dear Iceage ticket purchaser,
Frost Festival is proud to announce the full festival line-up for 2016. This coincides with our posters being hung around Copenhagen, spreading the word.
Frost Festival is moving into the Workers’ Museum for a three day celebration of musical expertise and new Nordic hope.
Last year, Frost Festival launched the unique initiative Frost Bites, a series of intimate concerts which brought a select audience and artist together in close quarters and sourced its venues through online submissions from the public. 2016 sees the return of Frost Bites, and today we are pleased to announce this year’s four artists, as well as launch our new Frost Bites platform.
Today we have the pleasure of announcing three new events for this year’s festival programme. Frost Festival is forging new bonds between genres and geographies, presenting novel collaborations in unique settings.
You still have time to sign-up for Frost Festival 2016 as a volunteer, send us your application latest January 4th.
Frost is spreading the holiday cheer as we announce not only three new acts for the festival, but also extra concerts for our opening weekend in Tycho Brahe Planetarium.
Frost Festival and Fonden Roskilde Festival are pleased to announce world-famous harpist and vocalist Joanna Newsom, who will be playing February 26th in the Ceremonial Hall of New Carlsberg Glyptotek.
For the past five years Frost Festival has shone a light in the dark with unique events combining music, architecture and light. Frost is now proud to announce the events for the opening weekend of Frost Festival 2016.

PRAKTIKANTER SØGES TIL FROST FESTIVAL 2016
We are so happy and proud of this year’s festival – A month of pure magic and amazing moments. A million thanks to every single guest who came out to our shows.
Before the three concert nights at The Zoological Museum we invite you out on an audio journey together with The Lake and Sennheiser.
Our new concert concept Frost:Bites has already proven to be a great succes and has overwhelmed us with beautiful moments, amazing guests and concert hosts. For the first two shows we invited Christian Hjelm to come out and play and we have made a short video from the two shows. Take a look here:
It’s with great regret that we have to cancel East India Youth’s show in Koncertkirken tonight due to William Doyle’s ill-health.
Frost is all about good music and extraordinary concerts. We present so many breathtaking musicians and bands during the festival, and we want you to get to know all of them. So, we have created a playlist based on our 2015 lineup.
Host a Christian Hjelm or Chorus Grant concert.
We are stoked to announce the full line-up for this year’s festival. D’Angelo (US), We like We, Christian Hjelm, Chorus Grant, Narcosatanicos, Get Your Gun are the new acts we are happy to welcome to the festival.
Three weekend nights during the festival we present late night concerts in Bremen Theater. Natbar Live is our way to celebrate the music and the night together with our friends at the theater.
Light at the Museum is our new music and light arts concept where we over three days and nights reward our guests with concerts at the Zoological Museum between pre-historical animals.
Today is a wonderful day: We are stoked to write electronic wunderkind East Indian Youth on our line-up together with Danish composer/ musician / singer / producer and one-man-band Sleep Party People who will join the festival with his extended five-piece bunny-band. More happy news is that neo-classical duo A Winged Victory For The Sullen also will bring their breathtaking music to Frost to play a concert that we believe will be a out-of-the-body-experience.
Two new international acts are added to the festival program.
We are excited to announce Ulige Numre and KUBE to the line-up.
As we are approaching the final months of 2014 Frost starts appearing in the horizon as a warm and welcoming light. We are both stoked and very proud to announce the first three events to the 2015-lineup.
See you in February 2015!
FROST 2014 has been an amazing journey throughout musical experiences at interesting (and challenging!) venues. Join us for a trip down memory lane with three videos from our most spectacular venues: The old abandoned National Aquarium, the closed-down swimming pool, Hollænderhallen, and King Christian IV’s Brewery.
The new Danish band The Mountains will play their debut concerts at the old King Christian IV’s brew house for FROST 2014. Here they will play two concerts in one night at the old brewery’s beautiful wooden loft. We have talked to the three experienced musicians about their expectations for the shows.
The legendary American indierock group of Montreal join FROST with the catchy songs from their new album “Lousy With Sylvianbriar”. We talked with lead singer Kevin Barnes about the inspiration for the new album and the band’s flamboyant live setup.
He has been named “the one to watch in 2014” by Billboard and other influential media and we are tremendously excited that SOHN will give his first venue concert in Denmark as part of FROST 2014. We asked the English electronic soul artist about his expectations for 2014 and his gig in Pumpehuset.
When Indians and Rumpistol play their two concerts at this year’s FROST, they will not be alone on stage. Joining them is 70 musicians from the symphony orchestra Copenhagen Phil. This will be a once in a lifetime experience for both the artists and the audience. We have asked Jens Berents Christiansen from Rumpistol and Søren Lykke Juul from Indians to interview each other about the concerts, their expectations and collaboration.
Copenhagen based trio, Eggs Laid By Tigers, are drawn to Dylan Thomas’ poetry and the mythical universe surrounding him. For FROST 2014, the trio will play a number of intimate concerts inside a beautiful hotel suite at Hotel Kong Arthur, to honor the memory of the late poet and the infamous Chelsea Hotel in New York, where he lived and died. We have talked to Eggs Laid By Tigers about poetry, expectations and how it feels to get to stay inside Dylan Thomas’ childhood home.
If one should describe LA-duo Lucky Dragons with one word it would have to be ‘unpredictable’. The duo thrives on the unknown, and their live concerts are notoriously known for including the audience in the most subtle ways. We have talked to Lucky Dragons about the beauty of the unknown, the sense of community in live concerts and improvisation.
Danish lighting designer, Jakob Kvist, has always been fascinated by light and all the possibilities that lie within this bright art form. FROST has invited Kvist to create lighting design at some of the biggest and most challenging venues this year. By using lighting actively, Kvist hopes to bring music and architecture closer together at some of these stranger venues. We have talked to the Copenhagen based designer about lighting design, music and architecture, and asked him to unveil some of what we can look forward to.
