It’s the hedonistic peak of many a young Scandinavian’s summer and a major player in Danish youth culture. Roskilde Festival, the biggest open-air music event in northern Europe, is back for its 2017 edition with a strong, strong line-up.
The musical billing for 2017 is arguably one of the best the festival has offered in recent years, with big names like Foo Fighters, Arcade Fire, Solange and The XX all scheduled to appear.
True to Roskilde tradition, the camping area is opened on Saturday 24th June so that keen festival goers can find a good camping spot and soak up the atmosphere before the music begins in earnest on Wednesday 28th.
Spending a week or just a day on Roskilde’s sprawling festival ground, with its many food stands, events and activities (designed to create a sense of community among the guests), is a unique and often formative experience for music lovers of any age. We think you’ll love it.
One-day tickets cost 995 DKK; the full festival experience costs 1995 DKK.
