Globalization, Gossip and Greed - Golden Days Festival

What was so special about the 1700s in Denmark? According to the Golden Days Festival site, this was a time characterized by an exchange between:
the open minded and curious and the closed and introverted. It was a florissant period where merchants made fortunes on slaves and arms trade, while citizens' rights and freedom of speech were debated in the newly established clubs.

Between September 3rd and 26th, the festival in Copenhagen, Denmark will feature exhibits, lectures, concerts, masquerade balls and more! Every year the Golden Days Festival plays host to a different time period. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
