HAVEN Festival is an artistic experiment between the four enterprising enthusiasts and friends, Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner from the band The National, Claus Meyer, and Mikkellers founder, brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø. They have teamed up to create new experiences from the best of each of their disciplines, namely beer, food, art and music, and get it all to meet in a single festival, where everything must be an independent, sensuous and carefully handpicked experience that supports the next.
HAVEN is just as much a sophisticated beer festival with international live music and an art festival with pig roast and international guest chefs, as it is a music festival that takes place in the middle of one large installation artwork created in collaboration between the brewers, musicians, cooks and performance artists from all over world.
HAVEN takes place as a two-day festival August 11th and 12th in Refshaleøens industrial and wild setting with three main areas, all facing the city and harbor. To participate in HAVEN is not to be a passive observer, on the contrary you’re invited as a guest to a party where musicians, chefs, artists and brewers are working together in a crisscrossing of disciplines, helping each other with it all and also invites the guests to do the same.
