Stella Polaris, the biggest chill-out event in Denmark, always unfolds in the picturesque inner-city park, Østre Anlæg, the first Sunday in August.
This year the celebrated musical mastermind and activist, Moby, headlines the festival.
Mellow, Happy and Cutting-edge
Stella Polaris is one of the most popular traditions of the Danish summer. The free chill-out festival takes place in the charming inner-city park, Østre Anlæg, and is famous for its mellow, cutting-edge electronic music and its colourful mix of picnics, sun-bathers and after-parties, creating an equally mellow – and truly happy-go-lucky – atmosphere.
Previous years have seen a line-up of some of the very top names of the chill-genre, like Mambo resident, Pete Gooding, and Space resident, Steve Harvey, as well as the Danish DJ-duo Lulu Rouge.
This year will take the musical level to new heights with the celebrated musical mastermind and activist, Moby, headlining the festival.
Savour the Danish DJ-duo, Lulu Rouge’s, version of Moby’s song “Natural Blues”, remixed especially for Stella Polaris.
Non-profit and Children-friendly
Stella Polaris is a non-profit event and is financed exclusively by funds, sponsorships and voluntary work. “Chill-out” wine-boxes, beer and water, as well as grilled skewers and noodles may be bought at the event.
The Children’s Workshop – a department at the national gallery, Statens Museum for Kunst – supplies artistic materials for children to let loose their imagination, assisted by a couple of museum employees.
