Honeyland Festival wants to challenge current festival norms and aspire into a festival culture where guests and participants are co-creators instead of consumers. A purpose of the festival is also to create an interesting and different program of Danish and international underground music & art.
We believe that our dogmas of DIY-creation, substantial voluntarity and participant inclusion can inspire young and old enthusiasts to break down barriers, start their own projects and follow their dreams.
Our participant inclusion is facilitated through our pop-up program: the cinema and Amfiscene are open for spontaneous performances of different kinds, we have an open sound studio, an open sculpture park, workshops and an all-time-presence of possibilities and materials to do visual art at the festival ground. This parallel pop-up program can be announced on our centrally placed Pop-up Timetable in the info area.
By seeing the participant as a potential artist, we aim to break down the typical difference between artist, volunteer, organizer and audience. All participants work voluntarily aspired by the single motivation of pulling together. This makes the festival possible and every year we need a lot of helping hands and minds.
Honeyland presents new and experimental music and art anno 2018.
The participants will over a course of four days experience a program consisting of: concerts, performances, DJs, poetry-readings, art-installations, workshops, film-screening, talks and a sculpture park. We have The Main Stage mainly for music, Amfiscene for basically everything, the Cinema especially for screenings, generally for everything, a Workshop Area, the Beehive for performances and late-night dancing with the DJ’s. The whole festival is also open for the Pop-Up program, and we have the old Teknohytten where you can buy everything you need and chill in its lounge.
Located in the Baltic Sea on the evergreen holiday-island Bornholm, the festival takes place in the perhaps most beautiful part of Denmark and at the best time of year.
Nearby the festival ground are access to beaches, forests, traditional Danish villages and the all-time-favorite Opal Lake where you can cliff-jump or just enjoy the view and surroundings.
The project is initiated by the cultural union Honeyland Palace who since the first festival in 2016 has creates a series of cultural events throughout Denmark.

Participant Guidelines for Honeyland Festival
- As a participant at Honeyland you have a responsibility. We have a lot of trust in you and hope that you want to help us create an intimate festival together.
Close to the festival are several neighbors who respect the festival, thus we need to respect them equally. Save the late-night drum jams for some other time, and please respect their properties so Honeyland don’t get into trouble – their trust in Honeyland makes Honeyland possible.
- We have a spacious Parking Space that you can use for free, but we rather see that the space is used for parking only, not party neither camping.
- After 4 days with only 350 people on a small space, you’ll really get to know the people around you, and the organizers as well. Friends don’t shit on each other, so don’t throw trash and cigarette buts that your new friends have to clean up after you.
- .. and don’t steal from your friends or start fights with your friends.
- Honeyland Festival is a free-space. Everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, political beliefs is welcome. Discrimination is not tolerated.
- No hard drugs are allowed. You really don’t need that, do you?
- Generally, behave yourself and let your chaos unleash in some pretty art instead of just making people annoyed of you.
