On Saturday 4 July 2020, Roskilde Festival facilitates the digital event ‘Roskilde Festival – do it yourself’. The aim is to support the community around the festival and to raise funds for charity.
Every year, Roskilde Festival donates all profits to charity. Since 1972, the festival has donated DKK 420,000,000 (approx. EUR 56,375,000) to projects supporting children and young people, humanitarian and cultural work.
This year, there is no festival and for the first time in the festival’s long history no profit to distribute. That’s why Roskilde Festival has produced a special Roskilde Festival wristband. The purpose is to raise money for projects and initiatives that support young people’s opportunities – just as the festival’s profits would normally do.
You can join too.
The wristband costs DKK 200 (approx. EUR 27) and can be purchased until 4 July, which should have been the culminating closing day of this year’s Roskilde Festival. It is also possible to buy a support ticket for DKK 50 (approx. EUR 7) or donate an optional amount. All profits from the sale of donation wristbands, tickets and donations go in full to initiatives who work to create opportunities for and give a voice to young people.
Roskilde Festival has previously supported The Danish Red Cross Youth, LGBT+ Youth and The Green Student Movement, among many others.
