Thylejren (Thy Camp) aka "Frøstruplejren" started as an encampment and festival in the summer of 1970. The community behind the festival, Det Ny Samfund (The New Society) – had found an area in Han Herred between Frøstrup and Østerild (near Thy in Denmark) where they could host a festival, inspired by the Isle of Wight festival in England and Woodstock in United States.

Woodstock 1969 music festival in New York, United States

Woodstock was a music festival held on a dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains, northwest of New York City, between August 15–18, 1969, which attracted an audience of more than 400,000.

When some of the participants stayed during the winter, Thylejren developed into a more permanent settlement with DIY-houses — still upholding the hippie-ideal after more than 40 years. As such, Thylejren is truly an alternative society in the midst of the Danish society - a micro-nation with its own territory.

Hippie human subculture

A hippie is a member of the counterculture of the 1960s, originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries around the world. The word hippie came from hipster and used to describe beatniks who moved into New York City's Greenwich Village and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. The term hippie first found popularity in San Francisco with Herb Caen, who was a journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle.

Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.
