Imagine the Roskilde Festival taking place in Copenhagen and with food instead of music?
That’s what’s going to happen at Denmark’s first open air food festival: MAD Foodcamp the purpose of which is to celebrate the Nordic food & nature, the seasons, the harvest and the food of our region. The theme of this year’s MAD Foodcamp is the Plant Kingdom. It all takes place outdoors on a 55,000 sq m of grassy field encircled by bales of hay on the Refshaleøen Island in Copenhagen over the weekend of the 27th and 28th of August.

Noma founders René Redzepi and Claus Meyer along with newly formed FOOD (Food Organisation Of Denmark) are the main organisers of the MAD Foodcamp. Supported by numerous partners and sponsors, René Redzepi and Claus Meyer function as curators of the two parts of the 2011 festival: the international symposium and the festival itself
»If we can plant some fertile thoughts on ethics, sustainability and the joy of good food, the MAD Foodcamp may help reestablish the balance of the food chain we all depend on,« says one of the organisers of the festival, Noma chef René Redzepi.
