Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study examines the creation of a streethost-event at Distortion. By implementing the vision and core values of Carpark Festival, this study seeks to change the cityscape and bring people together at this specific event which will take place at Guldberg Byplads during Distortion Festival 2017. The empirical material of this study is based upon a semistructured eliteinterview with the project manager of Carpark Festival, ethnographic fieldwork at Guldberg Byplads and finally a focus group interview, with a sample of people within the main target group – 18 to 30-year-old Copenhageners – of Carpark Festival, whom also are part of the target group of Distortion Festival. The theoretical perspective is based upon terms including assemblage, space & atmosphere, affect, participation and the seven performance functions. These will all work together in the analysis of the impacts the different elements will have on the event, with a focus on creating a togetherness between participants and the integrated material elements of the location. By addressing these impacts the study concludes, that by implementing aesthetics such as dj’s playing reggae- and housemusic, sofas, tables, sunshades, rolled turf and the game of beerbowling, these elements will not only embrace the needs of the main target group of Carpark Festival, but also the vision and core values of Carpark. This is shown due to the fact that the event hereby will enhance togetherness between attendees at the event, and transforming the cityscape at Guldberg Byplads.
