Denmark's essential annual festival
Originally set up for the hippies of the 1970s, Roskilde Festival in Denmark soon morphed into the country’s finest music-orientated festival. Today it remains an essential Scandinavian stop-off for music-lovers from around the world.
Each year, organisers select around 180 acts that include a balance of well-known artists, cutting-edge stars, local headliners and up-and-coming names. Around 110,000 festival-goers will attend the event in 2013 - will you be one of them?

Roskilde offers parking for festival-goers who come by car. Parking is generally free, but if you want to park close to the festival entrance, you must buy a parking ticket.
Parking areas are located more on Vor Frue Hovedgade (across from entrance East), south of camping area P (Kamstrupvej) and on Darupvej by entrance West.
