April 26, 2019 – April 28, 2019 all-day

Nørrebro is one of Copenhagen’s hippest neighbourhoods, with a potent mix of cultures and plenty of young people moving to the area to take advantage of its up-and-coming status (you can read our insider’s guide to the neighbourhood here). Now ‘Nørrebronx’ has its own festival, and the area wants to entertain you in its own inimitable way.

Having started in 2012, the 48 Hours Festival is gradually gaining in pace and reputation – in recent years, around 11,000 people have attended the 90-odd events that take place over the course of three days. The festival impressed to such an extent that it was nominated for an award by iByen, an entertainment section in one of Denmark’s main newspapers.

The as-yet-unannounced programme is likely to include music, art, theatre, dance, games, kids’ events and food tasting sessions, all done in a style to represent Nørrebro’s own unique culture.

Entry will be free, and a wander through the neighbourhood during the event is likely to give you a taste of Copenhagen at its coolest.
