Getting there

Roskilde is keen for festival goers to arrive by public transport, to reduce CO2 emissions. They make these suggestions...

By train

EUrail covers all of Europe. The festival-goers just have to pick the destination, then the EUrail ticket makes available the train ride to Roskilde. A discount is granted to everyone under the age of 26. DSB takes care of the majority of the Danish festival-goers' transport to the festival. During Roskilde Festival a train station opens at the festival area so the audience can easily get to and from the town of Roskilde.

By bus

Swebus Express takes care of bus transport from Norway, Sweden and northern Germany. For the last couple of years, Swebus Express has taken festival-goers to Roskilde Festival, and in 2014 Swedes and Norwegians can go from Stockholm and Oslo, respectively, and straight to the festival area. City-Trafik supplies shuttle busses between Roskilde Station and the festival area. Bus lines are going both to Camping East and West.
