English term or phrase: high and low-brow
Perhaps one of the main reasons the festival is still able to pull in 80,000 people every year is its perfect medley of high and low-brow cultural persuasions.

I can find the expressions on the English Wikipedia, but have a hard time coming up with an equivalent in Danish. The client is very adamant about keeping the style and tone, but avoiding literal translations!

Danish translation:finkultur og populærkultur
Explanation:
Når festivalen hvert år kan tiltrække 80.000 mennesker, skyldes det måske især dens perfekte blanding af finkultur og populærkultur - her er noget for enhver smag!

Hvis du skriver noget i den stil, formidler du tanken bag. At det så ikke lige præcis er det tilsvarede grammatisk og leksikalt, er ikke så vigtigt.
