Roskilde Festival is like a utopian city
With approximately 175 music acts in the line-up performing on eight stages and over 100,000 passionate music lovers gathered for a full week, Denmark’s Roskilde Festival is among the most cutting-edge and unique music festivals in the world. A position the festival has held for over six decades.
At Roskilde Festival, situated just 35 kilometres outside of Danish capital Copenhagen, the audience comes face to face with a world class line-up, which in recent years has included icons like Metallica, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. And here the audience meets the next generations of musical innovators and agenda-setters from all regions in the world and all musical genres.
However, Roskilde Festival offers more than a chance to explore a world of music. It’s also a way to break away from the real world and explore a utopian city of artistic expression, delicious food, sustainability and party.
The atmosphere at the festival site – and especially among the inhabitants living in the enormous tent city – is worldwide renowned and offers a sense of love and community spirit rarely found at other festivals.
Roskilde Festival is created by more than 30,000 dedicated volunteers and is 100 % non-profit.
All profits are donated to cultural and humanitarian purposes by the Roskilde Festival Charity Society.
