Global line-up for day-to-night urban festival.

Copenhagen’s Distortion has announced the first batch of names for its 16th edition, billed as “a week of emerging dance music and orchestrated chaos.”

Distortion is one of the more unusual propositions across Europe’s festival scene, with street parties across the city’s neighbourhoods in the daytime, clubbing at night and one huge knees-up at the end of the week – the Final Party, which features over 11 stages plus spectacular fripperies like champagne boats and the prospect of “giant surprise explosions”.

Neon champion Hudson Mohawke, cosmic jazzers Sun Ra Arkestra and globetrotting footworkers DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad are among the eclectic names announced so far for the festival, which takes place from June 4-8 in Denmark’s capital.

Also on the bill are nu-disco king Todd Terje, with his first live performance in Scandinavia, plus Kompakt boss Michael Mayer and US rapper Mykki Blanco.

Brodinski, Club Cheval and Ivan Smagghe will fly the French flag, while Skream and Blawan rep the UK  – check out the full line-up so far below.
