Are you hungry? Find help from Peter Harbo, who is the team leader in Food, the team who select all the food stalls you can find at the festival.
Here, Peter offers you a guide on how you can eat your way around (almost) the entire globe with the newest additions to the food stall scene. And he knows what he's talking about. Along with the rest of his Food team (they are a total of 14 people), he tastes his way through all 124 food stalls at the festival before it all ends on Saturday.
Take a trip to C at Reggae Kitchen (Kingston Cantina) right next to Stadion if you’re looking for Caribbean vibes. They serve Jamaican jerk chicken and Trinidad Coco 'n' Curry. Yah man!
Next, you don't have to go any further than the other end of C to get to Peru at Lima Empanades, where they offer - yes - Peruvian empanadas.
Head south to Safari Kitchen behind the fish pond in J if you're into African street food delicacies like peanut butter chicken, pilau, and samosas.
In J, you can also find burgers at Eden on the road, which Copenhagen vegans might know from home as Eden Jaxx. Here, the traditional beef patty is simply replaced with a juicy plant-based one.
When the Inner Festival Area opens tomorrow, you can stop by Sticks'n'Sushi next to the Arena and indulge in sushi and yakitori sticks - Japanese but with a Nordic twist.
France and Africa
In the Food Court, there are as always a wealth of options. This year, two newcomers have arrived: There is Sasaa, which is a pan-African-inspired restaurant that celebrates African culture with dishes from both Western, Eastern, and Southern African regions. The other newcomer is Grapes and Flames, serving Alsace-inspired flammkuchen: a German-French version of pizza with a thin, crispy crust and toppings such as fromage blanc, bacon, and/or truffle.
Speaking of the globe, keep an eye out for the One Planet Plate label when you're on the prowl. If you choose a dish with the label, which Roskilde Festival has developed in collaboration with WWF, you're doing the planet a favor by eating with a minimal carbon footprint.
