“Roskilde Festival is a very communal event where dreams and new ideas for a better tomorrow are being addressed, exchanged, cultivated and eventually tried out by our participants. And music and art play a big part in inspiring us to even think and sense those new ideas to begin with.”

“With its almost staggering level of music and art, it’s a must for anybody wanting to immerse themselves in a creative space for a week.

“So, if you can handle sleeping in a tent for eight days right next to 24-hour-party-ready festival goers, Roskilde will certainly not disappoint.”
