About A Colossal Weekend:
A Colossal Weekend 2022 takes place at and around VEGA in the heart of Copenhagen from May 19-22, 2022 and this year will be the 6th edition. Earlier editions have counted acts such as Cult of Luna, Pelican, Deafheaven, Anna Von Hausswolff, Alcest and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. 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.
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 lineup is built up around a handful of well-known acts who represents 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. This year, A Colossal Weekend takes place over three days on May 19th-21st 2022 with a lineup of 40 acts at 4 different stages.
A Colossal Weekend is presented by GAFFA and Visions Magazine and realized with funding and support from Statens Kunstfond, Vesterbro Lokaludvalg, Liveurope, DIT:KBH and Tuborg.
