I really like this start and I could consider this for next year. Just a few questions for the experts:

How's the transport? How's the price? I know Denmark is quite expensive. Any tip is welcome.

Thanks

Going for my 12. year this time. It is the best festival I've ever tried, so go go go. You will not regret it.

Transport is very easy - It is of course crowded at the start and end, but in between it is easy. Trains go from Copenhagen to Roskilde station where another train transports you to the very heart of the camping area.

 

It is a cheap festival. I end up using a lot of money because I buy stupid expensive drinks at the festival site and buy all my food at the festival as well. You can bring all the food and alcohol you want to the camping area. You can also bring a water bottle to the festival site - and you can fill it with pure Vodka/Whiskey if you like 😂.

At the campsite you can get 24 cold beer for 25 euro or a bottle of liquer with some mixer for 35 euro. My camp get all our beer through this. We think it is worth getting it cold and not having to carry it. 

At the festival ground the prices are more "normal" festival wise. 5 Euro for a beer, 12 euro for a drink. But there's a value for money option as well at the festival site. 10 Euro for a liter of white or rosé wine.  


Meals are 6-13 euro pr. meal. That's where money go 😂

It is a young festival and people party like crazy all 8 nights, so if you want your nights sleep go for silent and clean camping!

Oohh good to know. This is exactly what scares me. I remember some years ago after Sziget I checked my bank account and I realized that I charged 100€ on the festipay at 6am of the last day :)

Thanks a lot for the infos, I hope I can convince my friends ;)

Lineup looks really good.

I'm a little underwhelmed myself, but I normally am at this point with only 20% announced. Lots of goodies to come.

Y'know there's other acts already announced as well, right? 

So anyways, I went this year. It can be done fairly cheap if you plan ahead. I usually had a few drinks in the camping area, and then snuck some into the festival area, usually in a water bottle like the guy above said. But a lot of the time they didn't really check anyway, it was like "What have you got in the bag mate?" - "oh just a jumper and a jacket and stuff" - "okay carry on, have fun".

Food is definitely expensive (and also fooking shite compared to British festivals), so that's probably where most of your money will go. But I'm pretty sure you can rent a fridge, so if there's a group of you going you could just split the cost and put a load of food in there.

 

I'm pretty sure the festival is all contactless; they have an electronic wristband but I'd recommend getting a TransferWise card if you can. (DM if ya wanna know more)

 

But seriously it's so much fun. People out there are really friendly, was so easy to start up a conversation with strangers. I think some people hadn't met a British person before and were really excited about it haha. Got plenty of free drinks (and other substances 👀) off people just because they liked the way I spoke and how "British" I was.

 

Another good thing is that all the acts get pretty good set lengths. Usually at least an hour, and you even get some non-headliners that are doing like 90+ mins.

These first names are delicious. We've only got 3 headliners yet, so we'll still get around 5 of them. And the undercard is looking great.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

Yeah the Danes are really proud of this festival (rightly so IMHO) so they appreciate chatting to us Brits about it. I love the diversity of music, the technical quality of the sound and that most of the staff are volunteers (including security) which helps create a better atmosphere. Also it is not for a profit.

I don't agree that the food is shite tho as some of the stuff in the foodcourt area is really good quality but definitely expensive.

Seventh year in a row for me
