Roskilde Festival 2019
For some, it is more than music, art, food and good parties – much more actually. It is also a week-long celebration of community and togetherness as well.
In 2018 the festival featured acts such as Joey Badass, Black Star, Eminem, First Aid Kit, Gorillaz, Khalid, Bruno Mars and much more. You can see the Line up for the upcoming festival on their official website.
This was Denmark’s first music-oriented festival created for hippies, and today it comes more of the mainstream youth from Scandinavia and the rest of Europe.
The first Roskilde Festival was named the Sound Festival and it was inspired by festivals and youth gatherings like Woodstock or Newport.
Thousands of people arrive during Saturday (some even arrive several days before), to wait in the queue until 16:00 that afternoon when the gates to the campsite officially open!
One male and one female winner receive a ticket for the next year’s festival! This is an extremely popular event during the festival.
