Lucy Love is the sound of Copenhagen.
She is indeed an artist and Lucy Love is her art project. Her latest album, Desperate Days, is a lesson on how
to turn desperation and despair into creativity and musical energy.
Lucy Love is no newcomer to the Copenhagen electronic/grime/rap/whatever scene and she knows her
game like few others.
Her beats are aggressive and her rap is in your face but her words are up close and personal.
Do yourself a favor and head for the Frekvens stage as Lucy will kick off five hours of intense partying.

Emil Stabil and his crew Lil Label is a group of rappers hailing from Aarhus. In the spring of 2014 they
uploaded a track called “Er Det En Fugl” to Soundcloud. The real catchy hook line and hypnotic beat,
spread really fast and was the biggest hit of the camps at Roskilde Festival and Smukfest. Danish P3
also picked up the track and especially the program Lågsus supported Emil Stabil.
Emil Stabil is the final act of this year’s festival and we’re convinced he’ll close it down with style and a
party that people will remember for a very long time.

What is the Spring Festival?
The Spring Festival is the biggest, collective event for the entire UCPH. The idea for the festival emerged from Studenterhuset and the Student Council at UCPH, who with the UPCH also arranges the entire Festival. Much of the planning and practical work is carried out by volunteers, and you are more than welcome to join! The whole event is non-profit, and any possible surplus is transferred to next year’s Festival.
The Spring Festival is for all for UCPH employees and students. It is not possible to bring guests not connected the University. On the other hand is the access totally free: Just remember to bring your student ID-card, because we will check it at the entrance.
BUT HOW ABOUT…
The Student Council representing all the students of the University of Copenhagen
The meeting point for students from across all of University of Copenhagen’s faculties
With 38.000 students and 9.000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is largest institutions of research and education in Denmark
