PHONO could not exist nor suceed without the many volunteers helping out before, under and after the festival. Those volunteers together form the PHONOfamily. Christian Steen Mortensen is one of them – a true insider. Below you can read his answers to 5 quick questions. You may be inspired.

Who are you in the PHONOfamily?
A friend of a friend who has been a volunteer for the past decade. I have been a volunteer for 5 years in a row.

What has been your favorite PHONO experience throughout the years?
It has to be the Robert Hood concert in 2012. He just killed it from start to finish and everyone was in on the party. It was literally so loud the roof almost fell down.

What acts are you especially looking forward to at PHONO16?
For sure Huerco S. whose newest album is among the very best from 2016. That’s going to be a beautiful concert. I also think Foodman will be crazy!

Why are you going back for PHONO16?
Because it has been a superb weekend all the times I have been to the festival. It is always expertly curated, so it makes sense to explore the whole day’s programme. I’m looking forward to being surprised and challenged as well as dancing again this year!

Any last words before going into festival mode?
No, I will let the festival speak for itself. See you there!
