How to get around

The easiest way to get around Copenhagen is by bike. We will try to get old bikes to fix up. On the festival we will have tourist maps of Copenhagen.

There are buses leaving close to the venue. It's pretty expensive, so if you know you are going to use the bus more times, you can buy 10 trip tickets in most kiosks.


Accessibility

There will be text as soon as we know more. Right now we are looking into wheelchair accessibility on the higher floors. Will be up soon.


Language

We would like to be able to have translations at the festival but also on the homepage. Please let us know if you have translation skills and want to help out translating before or during the festival. info@queerfestival.org


Price

Non-profit is another keyword for the festival. We wish to create a space which is not based on money, as we find this is the case in society today. The festival is open to all, whether or not they have money. So it doesn't cost anything to take part in the festival, meaning going to workshops, sleeping and food is by donation. We have been fundraising and making solidarity events for this to be possible. Still it is important to point out that running a big festival costs money, and therefore we ask people who have money to give bigger amounts of donations than the people who are not able to.


Sleeping

Unfortunately it's not possible to sleep over at the festival venue. We haven't managed to get accommodation yet, but if you need a place to stay, or if you are able to host people during the festival, please sign up in this sheet You can also write cphqueerhosting@gmail.com stating number of people and the dates accommodation is required. If we find accommodation we will let you know.


Food

There will be common food for lunch and dinner. Food is by donation. All the food served on the festival is vegan. If you have allergies let us know and we will make sure there is also food for you. There is vegan food three times a day. If you feel you can coordinate a day or a meal in the kitchen please let us know. info@queerfestival.org


General Information about Denmark

Money:

Denmark has its own currency kroner as it is not part of the Euro European standard currency. Danish money can be bought at the Airport, or at Forex Shops around town, but it will probably be cheaper to buy them before entering the country. At present time 100 Danish kroner is worth 13.41 Euros and 18.36 US Dollars.

Weather:

The weather in Copenhagen in July is changeable. It can be really hot but it can also rain and be chilly. Here is a link to the Danish weather forecast so you can come prepared: dmi.dk

Transportation:

Public transportation is very expensive in Copenhagen. Travelling from the airport to the city can cost you 36 DKR per person. And a ride itself never costs less than 24 DKR. However the prices can be reduced by buying 10 trip coupons. Doing so is advised for anyone planning to stay in Copenhagen, or moving around for more than a few days. Copenhagen is nice on bike. We hope to have a bike workshop at the queerfestival so you can make your own.
