How to arrive at Roskilde Festival with ease
This is a must-read guide for your arrival at this year’s Roskilde Festival
PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY 10.5.2023
Are you yearning for lots of festival feeling? And would you like to arrive as one of the first to Roskilde Festival 2023? Then read how to make an Early Entry booking for Camping East and Camping West
We are repeating and expanding a success from last year's Roskilde Festival: the opportunity to arrive early and safely to the most beautiful festival site.
The option is called Early Entry and is your key to being involved from the start when it all gets going!
We will open the gates for everyone on Saturday 24 June at 16:00 – and here you can read more about how to generally secure and plan your arrival. But already from 10:00, you can gain access to the campsite and your dream home for eight days filled with all the best our festival has to offer.
If you want early entry, you can choose between six different types of early entry tickets. Some of them lead you to entrance West, others to entrance East, but you can easily cross the footbridge between Camping East and Camping West. This ensure that you can, for example, slip through the door in entrance West and find your special camping or community camping site in Camping East, or you can cross the footbridge the other way if you are heading towards a regular campsite in West.
Finally, if you are staying in Caravan Camping and have an MC Camping or Sleep-In Buses ticket, you can also buy and book Early Entry access between 10:00 and 14:00 on 24 June. Read more below.
