The Roskilde Festival is an experience not be missed. Every year, Northern Europe’s largest music festival takes over the Danish town of Roskilde for a week. The Roskilde Festival has been around since 1971 and acts as a non-profit NGO, consisting of thousands of volunteers (during the festival there are approx. 32,000 volunteers).
Not all of the acts are immediately publicised– but even without having seen the program, we can still assure you that the eight main stages will be rocking with amazing music! The set-list is always made up of huge international stars as well as up-and-coming bands!
Follow the announcements of all artists that will be playing at the roskilde-festival.dk.
A Festival of Culture
Roskilde Festival is not just a music festival, but also a festival that celebrates culture. The festival site is transformed into a huge party where music and culture blends, both large and small, mainstream and underground. If you get the chance to break away from the concerts and the parties, there are plenty of cool experiences to be had around the site:
- Rising City: An essential part of the festival is to give new, small and unknown musicians an opportunity to perform their music in front of a large crowd. In the Rising City up-and-coming bands, art and exciting presentations are placed in the spotlight.
- Art Zone: Come and experience international and Danish art that is exclusively produced for and displayed at the Roskilde Festival.
- Food Court: Even though there are many places to eat in Roskilde, it is not necessary to travel outside of the festival to get delicious food. Roskilde Festival ensures a wide selection of options at the many stalls in the food court.
- Maker: Here you are given the opportunity to view some of the technological designs and advancements of the future. You can even create your own festival equipment in the DIY area.
Also, we recommend visiting the city of Roskilde. The entire city celebrates “Go Orange”, an event which showcases all the best that Roskilde has to offer while the festival is ongoing.
Festival + Hotel
Most of the festival goers camp in tents at the festival site. But if you would prefer to have a private room with a great bed and your own bathroom, we can offer a comfortable alternative to camping in the small tents: Stay at a hotel near the Roskilde Festival. Zleep Hotel Roskilde is located in the middle of the shopping street. After an action packed day at the festival you can rest your weary body and enjoy a good night’s sleep.
