Full festival ticket:
Ticket for the entire festival from Saturday 26 June until Sunday 4 July when the campsite closes. Price: DKK 2250 ex. fee. The days with full music schedules are the last four days of the festival, from 30 June till 3 July.

One-day ticket:
You have the opportunity to buy One-Day tickets to the following days; Wednesday 30 June, Thursday 1 July, Friday 2 July and Saturday 3 July. Every One-Day ticket/wristband is valid from 8am until 10am the next day.

With a One-Day wristband you have access to the same areas as with a regular festival wristband (Campsite, Festival Site etc.).

You are only allowed inside the areas in the period where the wristband is valid.

It is not allowed to stay at the Campsite or any other place inside the area after the validity of the wristband (from 8am until 10am).

One-Day tickets:

  • Wednesday 30 June: Valid from 8am to 10am the next day. Price: 1100 DKK* ex. fee
  • Thursday 1 July: Valid from 8am to 10am the next day. Price: 1100 DKK ex. fee
  • Friday 2 July: Valid from 8am to 10am the next day. Price: 1100 DKK ex. fee
  • Saturday 3 July: Valid from 8am to 10am the next day. Price: 1100 DKK ex. fee

*Wednesday 30 June the Main Festival Site opens at 5pm.

Remember to bring your ticket, which you will have to present at the Entrance. Here, it will be exchanged to a One-Day wristband.

We don’t sell one-day tickets to the first four days of the festival.

Smart Ticket
Smart Ticket is a way for you to pay for your full festival Ticket in instalments. You can choose between 5 or 9 instalments where you pay a fixed rate every month. The payment is automated and will be deducted from your credit card in 5 or 9instalments. Apart from a one-time signup fee, there are no extra fees included in your Smart Ticket. And if you change your mind, you’ll get a full refund (excluding signup fee) as long as you cancel your Smart Ticket before 31 March 2020. What's not to like?

The ticket costs the same as an ordinary Full Festival Ticket (2250 DKK + fee) but is split into 9 instalments of 250 DKK or 5 instalments of 450 DKK and a one-time signup fee. The first instalment will automatically be deducted from your account 1 August 2019 or 1 December 2019 depending on which plan you have chosen. You don’t pay extra, and there are no hidden fees.

Name on the ticket?
The name on the ticket does not restrict the ticket to that person. So don't worry if a friend bought your ticket or you received it as a present. You can still use it.

Buying tickets at the entrance
If tickets aren’t sold out before the festival begins, you can buy them at the entrance at a slightly higher price.

You have to be at least 15 years old to be on your own at Roskilde Festival, but please remember that Roskilde Festival is a big city where everybody is partying all the time, so it is a good idea for you and your friends to stick together.

Children’s tickets (10-14 y.o.) are sold only at the entrance (regardless if the festival is sold out). In order to buy a children’s ticket, the child must be accompanied by an adult ticket holder known to the child. The child’s Social Security Card will be required.

For children aged 10-14 the price is 1300 DKK ex. fee for a full festival ticket and 500 DKK ex. fee a one-day ticket.

Children under 10 years of age have free admittance if accompanied by an adult known to the child with a valid Roskilde Festival wristband.

Young people aged 15 or older are charged full ticket price.

Please note that it is illegal in Denmark to serve alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 in bars and restaurants. Supermarkets can sell alcohol (below 16,5%) to customers aged 16.

The camping area opens Saturday 26 June. The main festival site opens Wednesday 30 June at 5pm.

Your wristband gives you access to the festival. If your wristband is damaged or broken, please contact one of the ticket offices where the individual case will be assessed. If your wristband is stolen, you must report the theft to the police and bring a copy of the police report to the nearest ticket office where the individual case will be assessed. Stolen wristbands are usually not replaced by Roskilde Festival.

Anyone caught without a valid wristband in the festival area will be liable to pay a penalty of DKK 3,500. Ouch!

Festival site closed at night
When the last concerts are over we close the festival site for the night. We open the gates again at 10am the following morning. We do this in order to clear space for deliveries of beer, water, food, etc., and to clean up the site.

Rules are boring, and we prefer to have as few as possible. So, here’s a few do’s and don’t’s. Please respect them.

Other questions?
Please get in touch with Ticketmaster if you have any further questions about tickets.

Can I bring a companion to Roskilde Festival?

If you are disabled and need to bring a companion with you to Roskilde Festival, there are plenty of opportunities to do so. As proof of your needs you must be able to present

  • A companion card issued by Danske Handicaporganisationer or
  • A corresponding foreign card (see list below).

If you do not have such a card but nevertheless believe that you are eligible to bring a companion with you for free, please write to handicapservice@roskilde-festival.dk.

How will my companion gain access?

  • If you are a guest, you must purchase a Disabled-with-Companion ticket at Ticketmaster. They are sold both as full festival tickets and one-day tickets. If you’ve already bought a regular ticket, Ticketmaster can help you switch it to a Disabled with Companion ticket.
  • If you are volunteer, please contact your team leader.
  • You and your companion must accompany each other when arriving at Roskilde Festival.
  • You must be able to provide documentation for your need for a companion, either in the form of a companion card or an approval from handicapservice@roskilde-festival.dk.

About companions

  • You may bring 1 companion with you to Roskilde Festival. The companion can be replaced by another during the festival: when your one companion leaves the area, another may come in and take over.
  • If you are a guest, you and your companion will receive regular wristbands. A Disabled-with-Companion ticket does not allow access to special areas. You must use the regular audience entrances.
  • If you are volunteer, your companion will have access to the same areas that you have access to.

Practical information  

  • There are many accessible toilets at Roskilde Festival. Most accessible toilets are locked so that they can only be used by people with special needs.
  • Most of the stage areas have podiums that are designed for people in wheelchairs, etc.
  • Roskilde Festival has a campsite, "Handi-camp", which is designed and reserved for guests with special needs or disabilities. If you have questions or special needs that we can take into consideration, please write to handicapservice@roskilde-festival.dk.

We provide Wi-Fi hotspots in selected areas of the festival site. It's a good thing to have when you need to update your festival app.

It is allowed to take pictures with still cameras and mobile phones (no flash) in front of the stages. The audience is not allowed to record sound or video. Filming and recording is allowed on the campsite.

It is not allowed to take photos or record audio/video for commercial use without a written agreement with the Roskilde Festival marketing department.

We encourage everyone to download the 112 app which both calls the Danish emergency service and gives your GPS coordinates to make help get to an accident quicker.

We are teaming up with the Danish Health and Medicines Authority to launch the Music Against Drugs campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to stress that music venues and festivals are against drugs, and that we want to help young people say no to drugs in our environment.

The festival wants to support the view that drugs do not belong together with music – and that using drugs is a very bad idea because it is illegal and dangerous.

Each year festival-goers miss out on lots of great music because they are intoxicated by drugs or alcohol. We think that's a pity. Music is a fantastic stimulant in its own right. Music is what brings us together, creates extraordinary experiences and leaves a lasting impression. In itself, music has the ability to create a euphoric atmosphere, but you will miss out on this if you are intoxicated by drugs. Most drugs make you slow, so your brain will quite simply not pick up all the nuances of the music.

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. Look here for some of the cases in point.

For the volunteer privacy policy, please look here.
