The Godfather of the Danish DJ-scene, Kjeld Tolstrup, graced us with his presence for the big finale party on Sunday night. He got accompanied by Djuna Barnes and together the two had the crowd dancing on-stage and climbing the surrounding circus tent!
Copenhagen’s First Lady Miss Djuna Barnes took us from daytime to nighttime with a set that was perfectly crafted for getting yet another big party going the final day of TRAILERPARK.
One of the most unique performances of TRAILERPARK was Ohland who sang beautiful, melodic songs melted together with hard-hitting sounds and created a very special atmosphere on stage with pink silk-paper confetti, satin umbrellas and origami-like birds on strings. A truly magical performance. Catch a glimpse of it here!
In keeping with the main focus of TRAILERPARK FESTIVAL, a Ghanese performance group visited TRAILERPARK. They stomped, danced and drummed like the Skatepark has never seen before!
Our good friends Buda & T.O.M aka Lulu Rouge stopped by TRAILERPARK Sunday afternoon to soak up the sun and play some beats. As always these two seasoned DJs made a very complex set seem effortless and intense at the same time.
Aura and her two band-members played a wonderful acoustic set on Sunday afternoon at TRAILERPARK. Aura entertained the listeners in a cosy and comfortable storyteller-like way, and the band accompanied her perfectly. Watch a clip here!
Legendary Kenneth Bager got the big Sunday session kicked off to a good start with soothing beats and a chilled vibe. The sun was shining from a cloudless sky and the beers were cold. What better way to start the day?!
GhettoRave played the Saturday night graveyard shift, but there was nothing dead about the three-hours session! Inspector Scratch, Tom Collins and CopyFlex brought lots of friends such as LadyBox, Leif and Soho. Though the air was very thick with smoke, the piercing beats and bass cut right through it!
The wonderful Scott Cooper paid us a visit on Saturday and rocked the TRAILERPARK to its core! This house-music DJ/producer spun one progressive track after another and kept the dance floor hypin’!
AC Slater is not only a character from the early 90s sitcom Saved By The Bell, but one of our favorite DJ/producers! AC remixed Samo Ti by FaggetFairys (ArtRebels/MFD) in 2007 and has since become an almost regular fixture in Copenhagen (if not in person, then definitely in spirit). He played an extraordinary set at [...]
We first heard Audiotrucs at Rodeo in Berlin six months ago and immediately booked them for TRAILERPARK FESTIVAL 2008! They were the first acts we booked and they did not disappoint! Not only are their technical skills impeccable and their flair for picking the right tracks are amazing, but they are also the sweetest and [...]
Purple Crush came all the way from Brooklyn to keep the party going and so they did! With a sprinkle of exotic break dance moves and a whole lot of attitude this dynamic duo had the floor packed! Keep an eye out for them as they seem to be stopping by Copenhagen more and more [...]
Straight outta Stockholm and in great form First Floor Power brought down the house from first key-stroke to the encore. Underplayed greatness is a Swedish master-trade and it is safe to say that this band encompasses just that. Little anecdotes accompanied every song and it felt like a very personal performance. By the end the [...]
The two teenage sisters from Sweden played a moving and heartfelt gig while the rain poured down upon Copenhagen, forcing the performance to take place indoors. But this unplanned twist of events seemed to become the perfect setting for this subtle yet powerful experience. The sisters performed well beyond their young age and their lyrics [...]
Ung Flugt is Danish for Young Escape – and whatever you want to escape from, this DJ act can make it happen! As the tunes fill the room you find yourself slowly leaving your worries behind. Usually Ung Flugt is a duo consisting of Johanne and ArtRebels‘ very own Najaaraq, but for TRAILERPARK Najaaraq was [...]
Vocals that cut through glass and beats that makes your heart pump faster. From start to finish Lucy Love delivered and intense and tightly packed performance that left everyone, but herself, breathless…
WOW! Specktors came, Specktors saw and Specktors conquered TRAILERPARK! The energy-level hit an all time high when these boys hit the stage and it kept peeking for the following hour. The beats, the hard-hitting rhymes and the razor-sharp vocals proved that Specktors is a major force to be reckoned within Danish hip-hop. To Drysset, Bruce [...]
From the get-go it was obvious that the three MC’s were on fire! Soho, Rita Blue and Leif were on point and clearly having a great time on stage and feeding the crowd lots of energy. Jens Fokking and Goofy Raskl delivered solid beats and playful variations and had the audience at their fingertips. A [...]
Beautiful people and beautiful music came together in amazing harmony when Joe & Honey (and band) performed an early evening set on the outdoor stage. One of those gigs where you just sat back, sipped your beer and hummed along… Have a look here!
Our beloved friend, and member of the ArtRebels family, Boody B, from the popular New York label/blog Palms Out Sounds played a stand out set on Friday night. A few old tracks and a few new tracks and a lot of goodies in between the tightly mixed set made it an interesting journey that just [...]

First Aid Kit is a Swedish duo formed by sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg from Enskede, a suburb south of Stockholm, signed on The Knife’s Rabid Records. They’re young – Klara is 15 and Johanna 17. The music they create could, however, hardly be called young, it’s rather ancient. The emphasis is on narrative lyrics [...]
