Circularity is the way to less consumption and fewer tonnes of waste. Read here about how Roskilde Festival will minimise resource consumption and the volumes of waste in the coming years.

The journey towards a circular festival follows our resource and waste management plan which describes how we prevent waste and create more recycling.

The buy and throwaway culture is a threat to the state of the entire world, and the negative consequences of the consumer society are present at our festival as well as in the surrounding community.

Over the past 20 years, the volume of waste at the festival have increased by 76 tonnes a year on average. We are determined to change that.

The sustainable changes must be created through the specific objectives and initiatives described in our resource and waste management plan that applies to the years 2020-2024.

The resource and waste management plan is the tool that will turn Roskilde Festival into a circular event and organisation.

Circular solutions are about reducing the volumes of waste through design, through maintaining products and materials in use, and through ensuring more and better recycling.

This means that we will minimise resource consumption, reuse products and ensure increased recycling of the waste generated at the festival and at the other live events that we are a part of.

The resource and waste management plan describes the specific actions and initiatives within the themes of design and consumption, managing waste for recycling and transverse focus areas.
