Why Solidarity is this year's theme
The overall theme this year is Solidarity, inspired by all the young people demonstrating for a better world.
We have the largest ever generation of young people in the world, and they are set to inherit a world of division and climate catastrophes. We cannot let them fall back into hopelessness and despair. It’s our responsibility and ambition to support those who dare to act and to have the courage to make a change. Time is ripe to shine a light on community and the importance of solidarity – for the sake of our future. It’s more important than ever before to empower young people, and that’s exactly what we want to do.
The programme comes together in collaboration with a list of partners and organisations who are also involved in this theme. You will see Solidary across our programme at Roskilde Festival 2019 in concerts, art performances, talks and more.
