We expect to carry through Roskilde Festival in 2021. It may not be in a way we usually do it. Because the world is different and the situation changes constantly.
But we know more about COVID-19 now than we did in the first wave of the pandemic: the possibilities for treatment are better, testing has further developed and the vaccinations have started. It nurtures our hope that solutions can be found for how we can be together again.
No matter how serious the outlook – both regarding health and finances – is at the moment, Roskilde Festival will survive and return whenever we can in the future.
The desire to gather in communities to share art and music experiences remains with our audience, and as organisers we are looking forward to continue doing what we do best.
The live industry joins forces for a health-wise safe and realistic reopening and return, so that we can offer a new and safe environment in the coming festival season.
Moreover, we can resume our work and act very quickly on our plan for the 2020 festival if the authorities are to permit for large gatherings. That way, we're not starting from scratch at the last minute.
