We’re in a new digital era with a much needed focus on personal data. We want to be fully transparent about what we do with the data we have on you and where we get it from. Below you can see some of the cases in point.

For the volunteer privacy policy, please look here.

App and website

  • When you visit a website owned by Roskilde Festival, we may place a cookie on your device (remember, you can always block them), allowing us to enhance the user experience and functionality. We also use them to target you with digital ads. We do this because you've shown an interest in our festival, and to make sure you stay updated on our line-up, tickets, donations and much more. Look here for more info on our use of cookies.
  • When you use our app, a tracking code gives us information about the usage. It also shows us where the users are located on the festival site, allowing us to send push messages to users in a certain area. We do this for safety reasons. We can evaluate on audience flows for future festivals, predict audience attendance and communicate safety precautions based on your location. Another reason is enhancing your experience. We can suggest experiences close to your location or guide you to the festival areas you visit. All users are anonymous. We don't know who you are, and we don't want to know. Look here for our app privacy policy.
  • When you use the Wi-Fi at Roskilde Festival, we get to know your mobile device's network address. Other than that it's an op network and all users stay anonymous.

Ticket sale and shopping at Roskilde Festival

  • When you buy a ticket, we get to know your name, phone number, address and e-mail address. We appreciate that info because it tells us something about where in the world our audience is from. Furthermore, we can send you practical information, updates and, most importantly, your ticket to Roskilde Festival.
  • When you buy stuff at the festival, be it beer or silly hats, we don't record any personal data. We've heard one critical voice say that we could in fact trace everybody personally based on their purchases. Let's be straight about this: We can't, and most importantly, we won't! At Roskilde you're free. We simply make it possible for you to pay for stuff you'd like to buy, just like shops do.

E-mails and newsletters

  • When you sign up for our newsletter, you let us send you stuff about Roskilde Festival. We do this because you've shown an interest in our little event.
  • When you contact us at, your e-mails will be saved in our inbox until you get the answers you need. Thereafter, we’ll make sure that our e-mail thread will be deleted within 6 months after the festival.

Images, video and audio recordings

  • When we shoot photos and video at the festival, you might end up being in the recordings. If you’re the focal point of the content, we will always ask your approval to use the content in any commercial context. You may also be in some photos alongside a lot of other happy festival-goers. When that happens we’re not able to ask for everybody’s approval. If you have any questions, please contact us at  

Social media and third party-plugins

  • When you post an image on Instagram and tag it #RF19 we may show it on our big screens by the Orange and Arena stages. We do a screening of the photos first and we prefer happy faces and cheerful moments. If you prefer to stay off the screen, you can make your posts private, avoid using #RF19, or just let us know at and we will leave you out.
  • When you visit a Facebook page owned by Roskilde Festival, Facebook collects data about your visit and your interactions with our pages. We use this to target you with digital ads on Facebook. We do this because you've shown an interest in our festival, and to make sure you stay updated on our line-up, tickets, donations and much more. All users are anonymous to us.
  • When you visit our website or use our app, you can connect with your Facebook account. By connecting with Facebook you can highlight your favourite artists, and create your own custom line-up and schedule - featuring your favourite artists. This is mainly to enhance your festival experience, but we may also use the data to communicate on safety precautions based on how many people might go to a specific concert. All users are anonymous to us.
