What are you missing on SmukFest15 and what is your personal headliner this year? We went out for a chat with people at the festival about their experiences this year. See the awesome people we meet, as well as their answers, below:

Rene

Name: Rene Engstrøm

What was your headline this year?
Lenny Kravitz! It was a nice concert, but with that being said, it was a little too long. A guitar solo lasting 20 minutes is just too long and boring.

One artist you are missing this year?
Thomas Helmig. I’ve been here for 9 years now, and Thomas Helmig is a must!

The disappointment of the year?
I don’t think there are any disappointments this year. If I should pick one disappointment, it’s the fact that they have scheduled the artists at the wrong stages sometimes. Gnags and Kim Larsen are artists who should really be at Bøgescenerne.

Your advise for next year? 
The camping area is way too small, there is not enough space for all the people. When you at the same time allow that people with a one-day ticket can camp the entire week, it’s just getting impossible to find a nice spot.

 

Kim

Name: Kim Gustafsen

What was your headline this year?
Avicii. The electronic genre is so popular right now and it’s just a brilliant party.

One artist you are missing this year?
Nik & Jay. They just set the perfect atmosphere.

The disappointment of the year?
Tiësto. It was like seeing a man who was playing a recorded set from a CD on stage.

Your advise for next year?
More pissoirs, the toilets are fine, but a man don’t need to take a dump every time.

 

Martine

Name: Martine Rosenkilde

What was your headline this year?
Dizzy Mizz Lizzy. It’s really old school and filled with good memories.

One artist you are missing this year?
ASAP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West – there are many. I miss some Black Hip-Hop.

The disappointment of the year?
L. (delusions of grandeur) O’Connor. He didn’t even speak with the audience. He looked like someone who just wanted to get the show overwith, grab his money and leave. Lenny Kravitz was also a bit of a disappointment. He was a bit boring.

Your advise for next year?
Include more musical differences on the rooster. Right now it’s like a bigger version of GRØN KONCERT.

 

Anne Sofie

Name: Anne Sofie Bundgaard

What was your headline this year?
Avicii! He’s just awesome.

One artist you are missing this year?
Thomas Helmig! It sucks that he’s not here, it’s kind of a tradition to be able to see him here.

The disappointment of the year?
It’s too expensive to live here. The food and drinks costs too much. And it’s very annoying that people jumped the fence, it’s a way too stressful start of the festival.

Your advise for next year?
Get Thomas Helmig to play, and forget all about jumping the fence next year.

 

Martin N

Name: Martin Nymann

What was your headline this year?
Avicii. It’s just a lot of people partying and having fun with their hands over their heads. And light sticks of course!!

One artist you are missing this year?
I miss Magtens Korridorer. They can get the party started. But, compared to last year, the music is on a very high level this year.

The disappointment of the year?
The food is way too expensive. They (Smukfest red.) were excusing the high prices last year with the fact that they didn’t sell enough tickets. But this year there are not excuses.

Your advise for next year?
Don’t throw away a hugh amount of money on one artist, they will always disappoint a little.
