Roskilde Festival is a music festival held in Denmark. One of the biggest in Europe, the festival is diverse in its musical stylings, welcoming stars of rock, pop, urban and electronic for a week of phenomenal music.
A real heavy hitter of the festival world, Roskilde has been wowing huge crowds for 45 years with almost unparalleled lineups. And since the very beginning the festival has been run as a not-for-profit organisation, with festival-goers given the chance to nominate organisations to receive funding from the money raised.
In addition to the great music and the honourable social conscience, the festival has developed a reputation for its impressive campsites and bonkers traditions, including the notorious 'Naked Run' on the Saturday of the festival.
Seven stages host one of the biggest festival lineups around; whilst the famous campsites are spread across 80 hectares, split up into zones, called "Agoras", with each one acting as a hub for parties, showers, toilets, food, shops and more.Expand Map
