We are 100 % non-profit. We donate everything to charity after each festival. We have done that every year since 1972, and we will keep doing it.

We support humanitarian, cultural and non-profit projects all over the world.

When you buy a ticket to Roskilde Festival or volunteer at the festival, you are a part of increasing the quality of life for many people around the world. Thanks for that!

Since 1971 Roskilde Festival has generated approx. € 55 million (the profit from RF18 is still being donated) to Doctors without Borders, Amnesty International, Support the Victims in Iraq, Save the Children, The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and many more organisations. At Roskilde Festival 2018 we generated a profit of €2,572,989.
