Celebrating ‘the nature of nature’, Copenhagen’s Bloom Festival is a tribute to all things scientific, held in the fresh air.
The science festival features domestic and international researchers, plus debates, conversations, lectures and nature walks in the spirit of famous Danish scientists like Tycho Brahe and Niels Bohr. The festival’s aim is to pull science out of the lab and spice it up with food, art and philosophy, say its organisers, the Carlsberg Foundation.
In previous years, the event has featured guests from institutions as diverse as the BBC and Harvard University. This year’s line-up includes speakers such as US science writer Carl Zimmer and author Jeff VanderMeer.
Taking place in the picturesque Søndermarken park in Frederiksberg to the west of Copenhagen, the festival offers something for science fans of all ages. Best of all, entry to the majority of events is completely free.
