PHONO Festival is a great opportunity to delve deeper into the ambitious world of extraordinary music.

The aim for PHONO is to make sure our guests leaves the festival with a broadened horizon of electronic music, entailing specific genres such as ambient, techno, leftfield, lo-fi, house, footwork, industrial etc. – in short: there’s no boundaries as to which genres are to be experienced at PHONO. Our mission is to challenge people’s perception of what electronic music is and how a concert can be experienced.

“A lot of people I spoke to at Phono Festival told me proudly that this was their fifth, seventh or ninth time at the event. Odense, Denmark’s third city, is not the sort of place that can sustain a huge amount of alternative music culture, and yet a dedicated team of organisers and volunteers have been booking ambitious lineups in unusual spaces every year since 2006. Because the music scene isn’t all that developed, the locals take Phono to their hearts, and you can see why.“
– Oli Warwick, Resident Advisor

“We can’t imagine a better place for music to take place then in the hands of PHONO. It’s so much more than a festival it’s vision for music and sound and as much as it’s entertaining PHONO is also enlightening by its genuine passion for experimental music – both concerning the legacy and the future of music and sound! We are proud be part of this festival.”
– The Lake Radio

“Den innovative elektroniske festival i Odense har opbygget et ry for at præsentere modige musikoplevelser i magiske omgivelser.”
– Red Bull Studios Copenhagen

“Du kommer ikke til at opleve nogle cute-as-a-button trance-superstar DJs, narrative reference til Fyrtøjet eller andre af H.C. Andersens litterære værker. I stedet kommer du til at blive bombarderet med bas og udfordret på genreopfattelse og dansetrin. Alle gode grunde til at besøge PHONO Festivalen.”
– SNYK – genreorganisationen for ny kompositionsmusik og lydkunst

“That was neat ! Thanks PHONO Festival!”
