Music Festival in Ecovillage
Description: Himmelstorm Festival is a small 3-day music festival hold by the eco-village Dyssekilde. It is located in Northwestern Zealand in the countryside next to a small village called Torup, Torup has only about 1000 inhabitants, and the festival has even less participants. The community of Dyssekilde is built in early 90es with strong ideas and principles of ecology and sustainability. All houses, toilets, everyday wares, and ways of heating the houses are organic and sustainable. The community even has their own windmill to power their houses. The festival itself is built on the same principles as the community, for instance; only organic food and beer from the local brewery are served. Everything from theatre, handcrafts, general intimacy and colours and vitality are valued at the festival. Thus, the festival is considered a family and children friendly place to be. Himmelstorm Festival has since its infancy been non-profit, which makes our volunteers essential for making Himmelstorm what it is today. Every year approximately 220 volunteers contributes in making Himmelstorm an experience to remember. The festival takes place 26-28 July 2015, but at lot of the work will consist of preparing and building up the festival, as well as adding several funny and interesting initiatives to an already fantastic event.
