This event has been and gone.
Last year, Haven proved itself a new and different player on the Danish as well as the international festival scene. At the festival site on Refshaleøen, musicians such as Iggy Pop, Bon Iver and Beach House played, 110 different kinds of beer were served and some of the world’s leading chefs were flown in to cook food over bonfires.
In a car repair shop converted into a classic wine bar, Icelandic Ragnar Kjartansson was stripping while the New York Times was lining up on the main stage to film a 360-degree video of The National concert that closed the 2-day festival with 20,000 participants.
Now, Haven is back in August for more of the same!

Stunning pianist and composer from Berlin, Nils Frahm had an early introduction to music. During his childhood he was taught to play piano by Nahum Brodski – a student of the last scholar of Tschaikowski. It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of the classical pianists before him as well as contemporary composers. Today Nils Frahm works as an accomplished composer and producer from his Berlin-based Durton Studio. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, has won him many fans around the world. For a musician this early in his career, Frahm displays an incredibly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, catching the ear of many fans. 'Frahm creates something mesmerising' (The Observer) 'Frahm works his magic' (Mojo) 'A fantastic record' (Album Of The Week, The Guardian).

Jenny Lewis had her first taste of stardom when she was a child, appearing in a series of television shows and films. As she came of age, she grew disenchanted with acting and turned to music, forming the indie rock band Rilo Kiley with Blake Sennett in 1998. Her work with Rilo Kiley drew upon the seediness of her native San Fernando Valley and nearby Hollywood, but she began to expand her horizons when she embarked on a solo career in 2006.

An German industrial band who originally formed in 1980. One of their trademarks is the use of custom-built instruments, predominantly made out of scrap metal and building tools, and noises, in addition to standard musical instruments. Their early albums were unremittingly harsh, with Bargeld's vocals shouted and screamed above a din of banging and scraping metal percussion. Subsequent recordings found the group's sound growing somewhat more conventional, yet still containing many unorthodox elements. The band has become one of the few German bands to produce genuine, international impulses and they have had an inspirational effect on numerous other bands and art genres, spanning from dance theater, to the fine arts, to film – from Christoph Schlingensief to Quentin Tarrantino.

The German Gods of electronic music, Kraftwerk have been electronica pioneers and flag-bearers since the late 70s and show no signs of slowing down. Songs like 'The Model' (a no 1 UK single), 'Trans-Europe Express', 'The Robots' and 'Tour De France' inspired a generation of bedroom pioneers to pick up their keyboards and play. Without them, modern dance music (ambient, techno and trance) would be a far darker place - if it were there at all.

From the same hand made coat as Final Fantasy, Beirut and Caribou, Dirty Projectors is the conceptual pop group helmed by David Longstreth, a young Brooklynite with a house full of beautiful hand-blown water bongs (one imagines). Listening to the band, one also imagines Longstreth's brainiac avant-garde compositions arriving in an antique sleigh pulled by a herd of stony ponies. Brilliantly crafted, incredibly befuddling pop music.
