A COLOSSAL WEEKEND announces significant metallic acts for the 2024 edition!
With A COLOSSAL WEEKEND, the organizers themselves state that they are trying to create an alternative to other festivals, including the more genre-specific ones. "Our goal is to create a festival and curate a program you won't find elsewhere. We aim to present and explore the diversity that exists when you dig a little deeper and venture into the corners. It's not the headliners that shape the program, but everything you don't know, which ties it all together."
Weekend tickets for A COLOSSAL WEEKEND 2024 are now on sale and cost 880 DKK including fees, while single-day tickets will go on sale in the beginning of 2024 within a price range from 375-450 DKK including fees.

About A COLOSSAL WEEKEND: A COLOSSAL WEEKEND is Denmark’s prime purveyor of somber and experimental rock music whether it’s post-rock, noise, sludge or black metal. The festival has existed since 2016 and has since then presented acts such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Anna Von Hausswolff, Cult of Luna and Russian Circles. A Colossal Weekend 2024 will be the 8th edition of the festival presenting circa 25 bands and artists on three different stages with VEGA in the city area Vesterbro as the core venue over three days from 16th to 18th May
A Colossal Weekend is a collaboration between well renowned venue VEGA in Copenhagen and the booking agency Colossal as they both discovered a common goal and ambition in presenting visionary acts of high quality within genres that many might not be too familiar with. Genres such as post-rock, post-metal, math, doom, sludge and black metal are solid ingredients in the program, however detours throughout other genres such jazz, techno and neo classical can also be expected. The concept of the festival is quite simple; to be a facilitated gathering place for music nerds, metalheads and curious souls with a soft spot for dark, experimental and atmospheric music.
The line-up is built up around a handful of well-known acts who represent specific tendencies and sounds within their domain, accompanied by a substantial amount of strictly curated underground acts, who altogether underlines, challenges and explores the infinite borderlands of alternative gloomy music. The festival has so far been a destination for music enthusiasts from all over the world. 40 % of the audience has traveled to Copenhagen and A Colossal Weekend from countries abroad and has co-created memorable experiences among like-minded people.
